Koei Tecmo will announce another new character for Hyrule Warriors this week, according to the game’s official Twitter account. While not technically confirmed, the tweet seems to hint at a Goron being playable. A reveal will likely come in this week’s issue of Famitsu – expect to hear something within the next couple of days.

Seven playable characters have been confirmed for Hyrule Warriors thus far. Link, Zelda, Impa, Midna, Lana, Agitha, and Fi are on the roster.


They don’t have any audio, but you can find a few additional cips from Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden above (no audio). The game’s website is located here.
