Following all the slew of Hyrule Warriors news, the Japanese website for the game released several new screenshots that highlight gameplay, characters, and stages. Included in the images are Twilight Princess‘ Kakariko Village and Eldin Bridge, as well as an enemy appearance from Zant. There are also new fire-based and ice-based stages and screens of Lana and Agitha in action.
Nintendo’s Facebook page posted descriptions and plot details for Lana, Agitha and Zant as well. They describe how Zant was pulled into the world of Hyrule Warriors by Cia, and how Lana ends up rescuing Agitha. You can read the captions and view the screens below.
Nintendo posted the following, along with images of Zant on their Facebook page:
“Zant is the usurper king of the Twilight Realm. Once Cia used the Gate of Souls to open a portal to his era, Zant was free to continue his shadowy misdeeds in Hyrule and beyond. Dual-wielding scimitars is Zant’s style, allowing him to swing wildly about or dash with intent toward his enemies. He also possesses a great deal of magical attacks, so approach him with extreme caution.”
Nintendo posted the following, along with images of Lana on their Facebook page:
“Lana is sorceress with a deep knowledge of spells, monsters, and using spells on monsters. She’s very energetic and ready to give the war for Hyrule everything she’s got. Lana and Cia have an unspoken hostility, even beyond the normal anger that war brings out. Lana is fiercely determined to put a halt to Cia’s plans, even at the cost of her own life or happiness. Don’t underestimate Lana just because she’s usually so optimistic! Her natural athletic energy serves her well and allows her to quickly dive around her enemies and attack with her book of sorcery, which utilizes electrifying spells that her enemies never see coming.”
Nintendo posted the following, along with images of Agitha on their Facebook page:
“While searching for the Gate of Souls, Lana takes a detour to rescue Agitha from a horde of monsters, ultimately recruiting her to the greater cause. Agitha is the self-proclaimed princess of the insect kingdom, late of the Era of Twilight. Agitha keeps a bright smile on at all times and looks at the world through a sweeter lens than her allies. But just because she’s so cheery doesn’t excuse her from battle! Agitha’s parasol is her standard weapon, though her real strength resides in the bugs she summons forth in times of need, such as a giant beetle or a magnificent butterfly. Never underestimate the power of an insect princess!”
We’ve been bombarded with Hyrule Warriors news as of late, and we have recently reported on character trailers for Link, Impa, and Zelda. We also know Agitha and an original character named Lana will be playable, thanks to Famitsu Magazine. You can see the Zelda Universe staff try out the E3 demo of the game here.
