In Nintendo’s E3 press kit for Hyrule Warriors, the company released a number of screenshots and additional artwork for their upcoming Zelda spin-off. While some of the artwork and screenshots are familiar, they do raise some interesting questions. Why does Link have a blue tunic at one point in the game? Is there a customization system? What role does Skyloft and Eldin Volcano play in the title? Who is that white-haired girl who is shown in the artwork for the box of the game? We’ll all know by September 26 when the game releases in North America, but these new revelations from E3 open up a slew of new questions and speculation for Zelda fans to chew on until the game’s release.

  • Beautiful. Where can I download HQ versions of these that I can use as backgrounds?

    • Morgan

      unfortunately the site is password protected. 🙁

      • Ryan Haynes

        People have figured out the password, and I’ll post it here if I’m allowed to.

        I’m sorry I had to delete the last comment, but out of respect for Nintendo the password and username for this site cannot be posted here. Thank you for your understanding.

        • Ryan Haynes

          No prob, that’s why I asked.

          • Morgan

            Yeah it’s just I both myself and the site have a personal relationship with NIntendo and we would not want to jeopardize it over something like this. The hi-res versions are so hi-res though that I actually needed to resize them for this post. all of them.

          • Oh that sounds awesome. Do you think Nintendo will ever release them publicly?

      • Ah, shoot. Well thanks for keeping us up to date and posting them here!

    • Right click, view image. Copy that URL, go to images.google.com and click the camera, post the URL you copied and search. The first result should have an option to find other sizes of the same image (I usually just pick large)

      • Thanks! There still not as good quality as they would be if Nintendo released them, but still a useful tactic!

        • Actually, I’m pretty sure that some of the sites may have also gotten the photos from Nintendo and didn’t resize them. I could be wrong, but I’ve found that to be true in the past. Either way it’s better quality than the ones that they posted here.
