Hyrule Warriors boxart and GIFs ⊟

The game looks really wild in the Wii U game’s new trailer and these GIFs (supplied by Son of a Namek, Rabalogy, and kmno4s), but I might sit this one out because Dynasty Warriors-style games just aren’t my thing. Dragging the Majora’s Mask moon into the scene for a special attack is awesome, though.

The next Zelda game: Hyrule Warriors for Wii U ⊟

Whattttt? A Zelda crossover with the Warriors franchise? Zelda Musou?! That is nuts, and completely unexpected. Under development at Tecmo Koei, the game is not considered part of the main franchise, if that’s not obvious. Hyrule Warriors (working title) is slated to release this spring in Japan, and some time in 2014 in North America.

There are so many great Linkle tributes already ⊟ 

People might be divided on her name, but the character herself has a lot of fans! There are tons of tributes to Linkle, the newly introduced Hylian heroine debuting in Hyrule Warriors: Legends. The pieces featured above, from top to bottom (and left to right) are from the following talented artists:

Linkle and Hyrule Warriors: Legends will arrive for the 3DS on March 25th.

Fatal Frame: The Raven-Haired Shrine Maiden ⊟

Even though it’s not a handheld game and the horror series hasn’t made it to the West in some time (not counting the Spirit Camera spin-off), I love Fatal Frame so I had to share this new trailer from the Wii game. This time around, players will use the Wii U GamePad like a camera, moving it around to follow ghosts in order to stun and capture them.

Gematsu offered these details:

“It is set in Hikamiyama, a sacred mountain with a huge lake at its summit from which water gushes abundantly throughout the mountain. It’s a mountain of death, and only those who choose on their own to die go there. They enter the mountain at oumagatoki (the witching hour), when the boundary between the world of the living and the world of the dead is blurred. The game’s story revolves around the concept of water.

The protagonist is named Kozukata Yuuri. She can see those who have been spirited away and captured in the world of the dead and return them to this world. Responding to the requests of those who have been taken, Yuuri visits Mt. Hikamiyama.”

Nintendo will release the Tecmo Koei-developed title in Japan on September 27, a day after the debut of Fatal Frame’s live-action film.
