Hyrule Warriors dev interested in working with Disney, Star Wars, Mario

Posted on March 29, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Tecmo Koei is using the Zelda series for Nintendo’s upcoming Dynasty Warriors-styled Wii U game, Hyrule Warriors. But Zelda isn’t the only prominent IP the company has interest in utilizing.

“Disney, Star Wars and Mario are just a few of the various franchises we’d like to work with,” Tecmo Koei vice president Hibashi Kinuma told ONM this month.

Before Tecmo Koei can even begin considering other partnerships and crossovers, work on Hyrule Warriors will need to be completed first. That game is scheduled to arrive later this year.

Thanks to joclo for the tip.

      You are being way too nice in your choice of words regarding EA 😉

        I could have said worse. 😉

      Since Disney owns Lucasfilm it’s really up to them who can and can’t use Star Wars.

      • Brandon

        disney makes the films & ea makes the games so. my point still stands.

        • D2K

          Disney owns 100% of Lucasfilm as George Lucas owned 100% of Lucasfilm when he sold it to Disney. Therefore they fully own all intellectual properties there-in no matter what media they appear in. So my point still stands. If Disney wants to allow another studio to do Star Wars, it will be so. What is EA gonna do? They are lucky Disney doesn’t buy them outright and fire everyone.

          And suing wouldn’t do much good either as Disney would not be where they are today without having the best of shysters on the payroll.

            whatever! I’m just stupid that’s all! 😛

      You do realize that Disney owns Star Wars now, right? Disney can work directly with Koei if they wanted to. Doubt it’ll ever happen, but it’s possible.

      • Brandon

        “Doubt it’ll ever happen, but it’s possible.” not if EA keeps making the games which they will. 😛

        • LordDisco

          But EA doesn’t own Star Wars. If Disney would like Koei to make a “Jedi Warriors” game, they would be the one to make that decision, not EA. The games EA have been working on have been original and serious collaborations with the Star Wars universe. With Koei, much like the “Hyrule Warriors” game, they will just simply make an over-the-top hack-and-slash Star Wars experience, much like they do for One Piece, Gundam, and numerous other franchises.

            aaaaand my stupidity continues…. -facepalm-

  • Vigilante_blade

    A Jedi warriors would be amusing, but I doubt it would be possible. Still, I would be okay with a Fire Emblem Warriors or something, lol.

  • ronin4life

    A Nobunaga’s Ambition like sim set in the Star Wars Universe?

    Yes. Please.

    They better finish and POLISH Hyrule Warriors first.
    That Dynasty Warriors series isn’t anywhere “good” imo. Generic gameplay and ugly/unpolished scenarios.
