A few more bits about Hyrule Warriors’ story

Posted on May 21, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Famitsu has shared a few more bits about Hyrule Warriors’ story.

Shia, the game’s main antagonist, was in charge of protecting the equilibrium of the Triforce. However, she developed feelings for Link and becomes jealous of his relationship with Princess Zelda.

Shia ends up becoming overcome by wickedness. With her two minions Valga and Wizro, she throws Hyrule in a state of chaos.

Link is a soldier-in-training in Hyrule Warriors. Famitsu confirms that the chain mail is his soldier-in-training gear.

      As if he didn’t have enough already right?

  • It all starts basically because because Shia has a crush on Link? If not handled correctly, this story could turn out to be absolute crap.

      They are trying to make it an anime, classic reference

      When has ever a Legend of Zelda story been good? Zelda is kidnapped, Link has to go save her. That’s the story. Every. Time.

      • Link’s Awakening 😛

        • EssentiaX

          Well, that’s an exception rather than the norm. Every iteration of the series in “modern” times have all been about rescuing Zelda.

          • Oracle of Ages/Seasons

          • EssentiaX

            No. In the end, you end of rescuing Zelda.

          • Keep moving dem goalposts

        • Tiina Kallio

          Majora’s Mask. No saving Zelda here either.

      • NintendoMan

        Link Between Worlds is pretty good, too.

      • The fact that you have to save Zelda doesn’t mean the story is bad or the same. In many games you have to save her, but the path to achieving that goal is always different.

        And like Gentle Robot pointed out, there are plenty Zelda games where you don’t have to save Zelda.

        • EssentiaX

          Well, OK, I mean, there are different levels of “good.” I guess “simple” is a better word in this case. The story is almost always very simple in terms of rescue Zelda or gather X items and defeat the darkness. The end. Don’t expect an intricate and complex story. I seriously doubt the story in this game will be any different from this. There is not much that can go wrong.

          • Yes, Zelda plots are somewhat simple. But that doesn’t mean it is not a good story. Trust me, as much as I love Metal Gear’s complex story, I don’t want that level of complexity anywhere near Zelda games.

            The story in this game has to be different simply because is not a traditional Zelda. It probably has the same basic elements like save Zelda and defeat the forces of evil, but the fact that the gameplay revolves around wars, it just can’t be Link’s traditional adventure.

          • EssentiaX

            >>Yes, Zelda plots are somewhat simple. But that doesn’t mean it is not a good story.
            True, I don’t want to simply otherwise. All Zelda games have been defined by their gameplay and that’s what makes it fun. I expect it will be the same for this game. Simple, basic story and fun gameplay.

            Why did no one bring up majora’s mask in this entire conversation?

  • wiiu4life

    Link is the man finally.

  • NovanIV

    My bet is still that she is gonna get Final Boss Jacked by Ganon/dorf/Demise depending on the era and turn out to not be a bad person, just led astray and corrupted by the real big bad.

  • NintendoMan

    Not the worst story in the Zelda franchise.

  • smashbrolink

    Wow, some actual romance in a Zelda game?
    At least, I hope so. I mean, I’d love to see Zelda and Link get cuddly for once, instead of being “just really REALLY close friends.”
