Nintendo began streaming a gameplay video on Friday for Hyrule Legends Warriors, the Nintendo 3DS edition of the Wii U game Hyrule Warriors. The video highlights the playable character Skull Kid. Koei Tecmo Games streamed the same trailer in Japanese last November.
Nintendo UK also streamed a Ganondorf gameplay video and a character trailer this week. Koei Tecmo Games had streamed the Ganondorf video in Japanese in November.
The game will feature all the characters from Hyrule Warriors, as well as most of Hyrule Warriors' DLC characters (with the exception of Ganon and Cucco). Hyrule Warriors Legends will also include Linkle; Skull Kid from Majora's Mask; Ganondorf (the 3DS version will feature him with a new trident weapon); and Tetra, Toon Link, and the King of Hyrule from The Wind Waker as playable characters. All the new characters can be added to the Wii U game from the 3DS game.
The game shipped in Japan on January 21. The game will ship on March 24 in Europe and on March 25 in North America. A limited edition of the game in Europe will include a compass. Those who purchase the game in N. America will get an original 3DS home menu theme for a limited time, and those who pre-order the game from GameStop will get a 16-page character art book.
Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U shipped in Japan in August 2014 and in the West in September 2014.
