GoNintendo has reported that the latest issue of Famitsu reveals Ocarina of Time’s Sheik, Darunia, and Princess Ruto as playable characters in Hyrule Warriors. Only Sheik is pictured in the article, but according to GoNintendo (by way of translating the original Famitsu article with Google Translate), it appears that Darunia and Ruto will also be playable characters.

Golden Skulltulas are also expected to make a return, and Lana and Impa have at least two more additional weapons that have yet to be revealed.

The full issue of Famitsu will be released in Japan later this week and we should have more definitive details to report once the article is able to be more thoroughly analyzed. For now though, while the information here is likely to be mostly accurate, take it with a pinch of salt.

How would you feel about the return of Princess Ruto and Darunia to the Zelda series after a 17-year hiatus?
