The official Japanese website for Hyrule Warriors recently uploaded more screenshots than you can shake a Deku Stick at. They offer an in-depth look at many of the characters and details revealed in Monday’s Hyrule Warriors Direct video. Read on to see playable characters Zant, Ghirahim and Ganondorf in action, as well as new looks at other characters and enemies.

Zant

The Usurper King of the Twilight Realm brings his eccentricities to Hyrule Warriors. His weapon of choice will be the scimitar, but Zant can use all manner of spinning, slashing and magic attacks. In a screenshot below, an army of poor Gorons don’t stand a chance against Zant.

Ghirahim

Also confirmed playable was Ghirahim. With fabulous power, Ghirahim seems to be teaming up with Zant to bring the pain. His weapon will be the Demon Blade, and the loyal servant is seen below taking on Hyrulean soldiers with it.

Ganondorf

Of course, Zant and Ghirahim have nothing on Ganondorf. His moveset appears to draw inspiration from Demise, considering his use of calling down lightning with a raised sword. It appears Ganondorf has the loyalty of Ghirahim and Zant as well, who appear by his side.

Cia, Valga, Wizzro, Dark Link

We’ve already learned a bit about Cia, the force causing much of the mayhem in Hyrule Warriors. The next three images show off a bit of her detail, and one interesting image has her holding the entire Triforce–Power, Wisdom, Courage and all.

It looks like Lana will rise to the occasion, however. Here she is taking on Cia. Play close attention in the second image: you can see a Dark Link or Shadow Link going after Lana with a jump attack.

Wizzro, a servant of Cia that we’ve seen before, also gets a few new screens. Here is the monster battling a Master Sword-wielding Link in a newly revealed stage.

Another enemy we haven’t seen in a while is the fire dragon warrior Valga. Part beast, part man, Valga leaps into the foray, only to be held back by the keen strength of Impa.

Link, Impa, Sheik, Lana and more

The heroes of Hyrule Warriors are the subjects of a few more screenshots. Link, Sheik, Impa, Lana and even the Great Fairy are seen below.

Adventure Mode

While we already learned a lot about the new Adventure Mode, the Japanese site went into a lot more detail with these images. In one image, Sheik earns a special key as a reward.

  • comamor

    Awesome! Time to play from Ganondorf’s point of veiw

  • GreenLinkMaster

    looks like the playable badguys will still be the badguys. will be kinda like Dissidia

    • Or… and hear me out on this…

      …it might even be like Dynasty Warriors.

      I know! I know! It’s a crazy comparison, but I think it’s just similar enough.

      • GreenLinkMaster

        >.> duh. obviously it is like dynasty worriors, the whole thing about this game since the moment we first heard of it, is that it is basically a Zelda themed dynasty worriors. that is a comparison no one has to make. but looking at those pictures, I see Girahiem rippin up some hyrule soilders. this implies that even though he’s playable, he’s still a badguy. which means you can play either side, good or evil. and thinking of this, it reminded me of dissidia. so I threw that comparison in there.
        also, I have never playd a single dynasty worriors game in my life, so I know less than absolutely nothing about them. I don’t know if they regularly do this or not. absolutely nothing.

        • guy man

          wow, get a load of this guy!

        • johnnyyy29

          It is not LIKE dynasty warriors. It IS dynasty warriors.

          • GreenLinkMaster

            it’s a dynasty warriors-Legend of Zelda crossover.

          • johnnyyy29

            In Dynasty Warriors, playable bad guys are still bad guys. So it was socially inept of you to compare it to another game when it’s always been like that in THIS game series. That’s why you’re being ridiculed.

          • Isaac Cook

            In Gundam Dynasty Warriors, it wasn’t always clear who was on which side. Outside of the campaign that played like the anime, the characters would frequently switch sides, and would sometimes fight against an unknown common enemy. As one who has not played the main Dynasty Warriors series, I can see why this comparison was made.

  • Ryan Haney

    Ganondorf, Ghirahim, and Zant together? Yikes! But I like Link, Sheik, and Impa’s chances against them.
    I didn’t have to look too close to find Dark Link.
    Was that a floormaster Wizzro threw at Link?

  • Zant is a character I’ve wanted to play as ever since I beat TP however many years ago that was. This looks like it will meet all my expectations.

  • johnnyyy29

    I really do hope they add Vaati as playable.

    • as008

      too late

  • Noshpan

    Playable Ganondorf. Excuse me while I go change my pants.

  • Nick

    i feel a very strong possibility of the three main dynasty warriors characters being playable
