Nintendo began streaming a Hyrule Warriors (Zelda Musō) gameplay video on Wednesday for Ghirahim, the demon lord who tried to use Zelda to resurrect his master Demise in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Ghirahim uses a Demon Blade in the video.
Nintendo also began streaming a gameplay video last week for Zant, the being summoned by the evil witch Shia in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Zant uses a scimitar in the video.
Koei Tecmo Games began streaming the opening video for Hyrule Warrior's adventure mode and another Ganondorf video showing the character's alternate costumes on Thursday.
The game is slated to ship on September 26 in North America. The game shipped in Japan on August 14 in three versions: A normal version for 7,389 yen (about US$74); a premium box containing an official book of art and settings, a Triforce alarm clock, a set of three types of "Courage" in-game costumes, and a set of three "Wisdom" in-game costumes for 10,800 yen (about US$108); and a Treasure Box containing all of the contents of the premium box, as well as two in-game "Power" costumes", a real "Scarf of Courage," and a treasure box-styled jewelry box that makes sounds.
Zelda Musō ranked #2 on Media Create's video games sales ranking in its first week.
