The official Japanese website for Hyrule Warriors has been updated with a wealth of new and interesting information. The new content includes various stage details and information on specific characters including Princess Zelda and Midna. You can read it all, below.
Zelda, Princess of Hyrule Kingdom: During the sudden crisis in Hyrule Kingdom, the courageous princess commands the troops while standing directly on the battlefield. Zelda is a dignified beauty with a noble and royal atmosphere. Hidden within her is the power of the Triforce of Wisdom. She has calm eyes capable of assessing the course of the war, calmly defend, and bravely attack. She mainly uses a rapier as her weapon, and she gracefully fights in a flowing manner without wasting a single motion.
Midna, Twilight Princess: Midna comes from a different world, and she is the princess of the Twilight Realm’s royal family. On the upside, she has a fairly minded personality. Although she has a pretty sharp tongue. However, Midna’s gentle on one side, but she’s also a strong female lead. Her appearance has been altered by the Sorceress Cia. Midna’s currently hunting for Cia to regain her original form. She fights while riding a Shadow Wolf created by magic. Midna can ride the wolf straight into the enemies, and utilize her hair to form hands to viciously strike her enemies or pick them up and fling them away.
Palace of Twilight: Hyrule Kingdom exists as the World of Light, while another world exists as the Twilight Realm. The Twilight Realm’s royal family lives in this palace. The residents of the World of Light and the Twilight Realm are unable to travel into each other’s world, but the two worlds have connected again with someone’s magic.
Eldin Volcano: Sparks fly constantly inside the cave of this active volcano. With nowhere left to go, lava can erupt straight from the walls, interrupting anyone’s path with naturally produced sea of flames. Mining have been regularly conducted in the back of the cave, in order to collect good quality ore.
Enhancement Items: An enhancement item may appear when you defeat an enemy, or they may appear if you break pots. If you pick up the enhancement, the power of an item will increase for a certain amount of time. The powered up bomb will allow you to blow away large amount of enemies.
Multiplayer Details: Co-op multiplayer with two people is possible. With the Wii U GamePad, and the other player will use the Wii U Pro Controller or a Wii Remote & Nunchuk for the TV screen, this will allow players to control their characters on their own separate screens.
Weak Point Details: With strong enemies such as King Dodongo or Lizalfos, there may be opportunities to strike them back after the enemy uses specific attacks. This opportunity is considered as the weak point, and a gauge will appear on the screen. It’s possible for the gauge to reduce when you’re exposed to an attack, so feed the gauge for a “Weak Point Smash” before it runs out.
One of the weak point opportunities is when King Dodongo opens his mouth. If you throw a bomb in there, there will be a huge explosion in his belly. This will transition into a Weak Point opportunity after this occurs. Strike repeatedly in order to increase the gauge for a “Weak Point Smash”.
