We’ve started translating some of the information about Hyrule Warriors included in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The initial batch of details cover the boomerang, Skulltula collecting system, and more. More information will be added to this post as translations are completed.

Update: Translated details are being posted here.

We’ve secured the latest Hyrule Warriors scans from this week’s issue of Famitsu. The images give a look at new characters (Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto), Zelda: Ocarina of Time stages (like Lake Hylia and Death Mountain), and more. We’ll have translations up soon.

A few tidbits about Hyurle Warriors have come through this week’s issue of Famitsu.

Zelda Informer reports that Cia caused worlds from three different dimensions to appear. Which games are these? Of course, they’re the worlds from Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time.

Today’s news likely means that no other worlds will be featured in Hyrule Warriors. However, we do know that elements from other games appear such as The Wind Waker baton and the Moon from Majora’s Mask.


A new scan from Famitsu gives us a first look at Princess Ruto in Hyrule Warriors. You’ll find it above.


Three new characters for Hyrule Warriors have been confirmed by Famitsu. Sheik will be in the game, as well as Darunia and Princess Ruto from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Famitsu also has news about new weapons for Lana and Impa as well as news about collecting gold Skullattas. More information is included in an eight-page feature in this week’s magazine.


Team Ninja shared a neat tidbit about Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden on Twitter late last week. Following the Wii U game’s announcement, the studio said that it makes use of some tech from Dead or Alive 5.

A translation of the tweet reads:

“While you may have noticed after watching the video, the latest Fatal Frame game that was announced the other day uses some technology from Dead or Alive 5!”

What sort of tech Team Ninja was referring to is unknown at this time.


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.
