In a recent Nintendo Direct Presentation, it was revealed that Gandondorf, the primary antagonist of the Zelda franchise who first appeared in the The Legend of Zelda: the Ocarina of Time, will be joining the already impressive roster of playable characters in Hyrule Warriors.
The Direct presentation also highlighted a number of other new game features such as details regarding Adventure mode in which players progress across a enormous map fighting their way through a variety of Zelda themed stages as they go. A cameo appearance by the Chain-Chomp, a minor enemy from the Mario series, as a weapon was also revealed, while another segment focused on how the game’s weapon advancement system will work.
Players will be able to advance through the Hyrule Warriors story as one of a number of classic Zelda characters including Link, Zelda, Impa, and Midna, all the while upgrading weapons drawn from across the series’ universe and includes such well known armaments as the Master Sword and Fire Rod, improving battle statistics as they progress. Players will also be able participate in two player co-op play, with one player using the TV and the other the Wii U game pad.
It was also announced that players who register their copy of Hyrule Warriors within four weeks of the game’s September 26th launch will be gifted with a free DLC outfit, as pictured above, for Ganondorf.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels.
When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.
