Not sure what to make of it. Honestly, not really my type of game, but I think Nintendo could make it work. On the other hand, the cynic says: isn't this just a clone with Zelda thrown in to try and make a few bucks?

I haven't played a DW game in almost 10 years. I would probably play this for the sheer novelty at this point. At least the fighting engine is solid.

Exactly. The cynic in me feels the same way. However, in all honesty I'm not much of a Zelda fan....

The Musou games and their clones bore me to tears, but my love of Zelda may turn me into just the sort of sucker that Tecmo Koei and Nintendo are expecting to buy this cash-in. If it gets good reviews, I will at least consider it, but I'll probably wait for a price drop.

So is this basically just a Zelda reskin of an existing game, kind of like the American Super Mario Bros. 2 was?

Nah. This uses the same basic engine and premise, but the game itself is different. This game doesn't exist with the same levels/events/etc but with other characters in place of the Zelda cast, but there are other games that are basically the same experience. If anything, it's closer to SMB2J; same basic engine (a few tweaks here and there), same basic experience, but doesn't have the same stages as SMB1.

First, Famitsu reveals two new playable characters. The first, as far as I can tell, might be Agitha from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. There’s also someone called “Lana”, though it’s unclear who this might be at present

Aside from playable characters, Famitsu also confirms that Argorok – who we’ve seen previously – and Zant from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be appearing in Hyrule Warriors

So I picked up this game because it's pretty much perfect for me in every way and I love it so far.  The story is pretty good, the gameplay is great (albeit recycled), the music is great, the campaigns are alright (albeit recycled) and the achievements/side objectives are fun.  If you're looking for something with not a lot of depth that has a lot of fan service and is something you can just pickup and play whenever you want without any serious obligation or commitment, this is pretty perfect.

Now I really hope the Dragon Quest game comes out here yikes

I've played it for a few hours with some friends.  It's pretty different from the games I usually play, but it was pretty good.  I'm glad they made use of the gamepad for a second player's screen, hopefully other games will do the same thing.

jb Sep 30, 2014

I'm really really (really) hoping for some sort of soundtrack release for this. The music and sound is excellent. I doubt we'll see one because Nintendo is involved but a man can dream, right?

XLord007 Sep 30, 2014

I ended up being a sucker and grabbing this at launch (the positive reviews plus my PAX hands-on sunk me). I'm still finishing up Diablo 3 so I haven't had time to dig into it yet, but I'm very much looking forward to putting some time into it.

XLord007 Oct 24, 2014

Now that I've put some substantial time into the game, I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I'm really enjoying it. These two series mesh together much better than I was expecting, and I'm having a lot of fun running around the different maps with various Zelda characters, slaughtering enemies, and finding the collectibles. My only real complaint right now is the lack of voice acting. I don't miss it in proper Zelda games, but characters in this one talk over the action, and it's hard to read and fight at the same time.

raynebc Oct 24, 2014

I agree it's hard to read the messages while you're busy killing a horde, but it's great multiplayer fun.

jb Oct 24, 2014

I've dumped about 150 hours into it so far which is more than any game sans WoW in the last 10 years.  Suffice to say I'm enjoying it

So, as usual for a Nintendo property, there's no soundtrack release for Zelda Musou / Hyrule Warriors, and doesn't seem like there will ever be. Any tips on gamerips?

jb Dec 14, 2014

I'm not really a game rip kind of person but there is an in-game sound test so I imagine it's pretty easy to rip it and it should be around the web by now.

Crash Dec 15, 2014

I recently got a Wii U (to play Xenoblade Chronicles before all copies of it disappear into the ether), and picked up Hyrule Warriors. I have way more experience with the Warriors series than the Zelda series, but I am really liking the crossover. It's a little frightening how much I still remember about the secret locations in the Legend of Zelda, but it's proving to be useful in Adventure mode.

Yeah, I've been using that, as well as utilizing the "choose your own BGM" feature. That's a nice option to have, since some of the tracks get repetitive quicker than others. The game could do with some more BGM tracks, even though there's a nice selection already in it.
