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?

    Would’ve enjoyed seeing Saria too but go Ruto and Darunia!!

    • JaidynReiman

      Saria is still incredibly likely! I sure hope she’s in, she’s my favorite Zelda character. 😀

      • ミケラ

        Also it would be cool if a Kokiri was in too!

  • MDH

    Great! I’m sure a lot of people were worried that only Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword would be properly represented. Can’t wait to see their design for Hyrule Warriors.

    If you can also throw in a dlc costume version Link and Zelda from Ocarina of Time, then you automatically got me sold.

      Don’t worry it’s already a reality!!!! I’m so excited!!!!! They have a dlc for Link and Zelda and it looks great… it’s the Ocarina Of Time 3D version though but it’s awesome!

  • Ceres Leaf

    Would be amazing to welcome our Brother and Water Princess back.
    Next up Windwaker styled Link and Zelda ? Midget fighting!

  • Zelda Fan Guy

    If Ruto makes it in, she will be my main character <3

  • rusVan

    Love the idea of playing Princess Ruto!! Bring it!

  • Ryan Haney

    I’m gonna kick so much goblin butt with Darunia!

  • GameZealot

    Except that would make 10 playable characters…and on the character select screen there were only 9 slots (if I’m not mistaken). I suppose that could be intended to throw us off, but something to think about.

  • Lachlan Wood

    Darunia is the second male character i believe

  • True Hylian Hero

    Please, let Sheik be a disguise of Zelda, or at least a Zelda from a different era (which MUST be acknowledged in-game)
