A leaked trailer most likely destined for E3 has shown that the popular Wii U title The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Warriors will be making it’s way to the Nintendo 3DS, not without some great new gameplay additions and even new characters. While the graphics have taken a slight hit as expected, the game still looks really good, and portable Hyrule Warriors can only be a good thing.
The two new playable characters are Tetra and The King of Red Lions, both from the Wind Waker. Tetra seems to carry a pistol while the The King of Red Lions can transform into boat form to attack. It appears that linking the Wii U version with the 3DS version will unlock those characters for the Wii U version as well. In another nice addition, it seems you can now simply press the characters portrait on the touch screen to become that character on the battlefield, allowing you to switch at will.
Rumours have been flying around that female Link will also make an appearance in the new game, as a crossbow has been spotted that looks similar to the one used by the female Link look-a-like from the Hyrule Warriors art book. Wouldn’t that be interesting especially about all the female Link rumours that occurred after last years E3 showing of the upcoming open world Legend of Zelda title. Expect to hear more about both Zelda games at E3 which is taking place next week.
