Sheik, Darunia, And Princess Ruto Will All Be Playable Characters In the Upcoming Hyrule Warriors
The release date for the upcoming action title Hyrule Warriors for Nintendo’s Wii U console is fast approaching. The game is being made by Omega Force who makes the Dynasty Warriors games for Tecmo-Koei and being assisted by another Tecmo-Koei studio Team Ninja as well as Nintendo’s SPD group. The game is due out in Japan on August 14th, in the US on September 26th and in Europe on September 19th.
Yesterday some parts of weekly Japanese video game magazine Famitsu appeared on the internet a little early and with it 3 more playable characters for Hyrule Warriors were revealed. The characters were super awesome Sheik, Darunia, the Leader of the Hyrulean Gorons, and Princess Ruto of the Zoras. As long Famitsu has their story straight and I assume they do, then this brings the total of playable characters in the game to ten.
