According to the official Hyrule Warriors Twitter account, the game will not offer online co-op. Players will only be able to experience co-op play locally.

What this means for online play is currently unclear. The thought was that Hyrule Warriors will offer Internet functionality of some kind, but co-op is definitely ruled out now. I suppose we’ll see very soon!


An official Japanese page for Hyrule Warriors shares a bit more about the Wii U game.

First, as many had anticipated, online play is now officially confirmed. The wording on the page suggests that a unique mode is being prepared for those who intend to play over the Internet.

Aside from a brief mention of online support, Nintendo also confirms the automatic posting of your play status to Miiverse and the ability to purchase DLC (this was a given based on the costumes we’ve heard about).

Lastly, Hyrule Warriors supports 1 save file per user. Oh, and the game’s file size weighs in at 7.8GB.


Like most Wii U games, Hyrule Warriors will be available both at retail and on the eShop. If you opt for the latter option, keep in mind that the title is a 7.8GB download.

Hyrule Warriors is a pretty big game. However, it’s not quite as large as some of the other Wii U titles out there such as Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze.


A new Nintendo Direct will be hosted on Monday, all entirely dedicated to Hyrule Warriors.

Nintendo of America’s confirmed on Twitter that the presentation will be held at 11 PM ET / 8 PM PT. A tweet from the company reads:


The Hyrule Warriors streams just keep on coming! In addition to the presentation currently being held at this very moment, there will be yet another event on Friday.

Twilight Princess-oriented content is set to be shown, and will feature Yosuke Hayashi and Furusawa Masaki from Koei Tecmo as well as writer Watanabe Hiroshi.

The latest Hyrule Warriors stream will be held at 7:30 AM ET / 4:30 AM PT. You’ll be able to watch it here.

The official Twitter account for Hyrule Warriors has given a first look at the game’s limited edition art book. You can find it above.


Hyrule Warriors will be seeing another streaming event this week. On Thursday, a special presentation will be held to celebrate the game’s completion.

Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto, Zelda series producer and Hyrule Warriors supervisor Eiji Aonuma, Koei Tecmo president and CEO Yoichi Erikawa, general producer Hisashi Koinuma, and development producer Yosuke Hayashi will be attending.

The stream can be watched here at 2 PM Japan time. That should be 1 AM ET / 10 PM PT, assuming my timezones are correct!

The triforce clock above comes with the Premium Box and Treasure Box editions of Hyrule Warriors in Japan. The treasure box and scarf will only be included in the Treasure Box.
