          1. On topic XD :
            I would like to see the Oracles of Seasons and Ages. :D
            And i would like to see a Young Link that use masks that can turn into a DEKU, ZORA, or a GORON! If there are specials he could turn to Fierce Deity too.
            (sounds OP but to level things you must only choose one mask at the start of the match)

    1. If we have to have more guys on the roster, then I agree with the Salesman or throwing in Tingle. It would be fun to be able to play as Beast Ganon though

      1. Well, if they give representation to every game in the series. And new doesn’t really matter considering every character other than a select few are all one shot characters, each unique to their own games, like Darunia. So new or not, she’s a Zelda character and deserves the representation as much as any other ones, especially considering her prominence in LBW

        1. I know. I want her to be in too. But I guess if we’re choosing one from that game, I’ll pick Yuga. Just to represent the villains. :P

        1. Nintendo is my Blood

          Of course I’d love Majora possessed Skull Kid but in case you can’t play as villains, regular Skull Kid would be also good

          1. I’d think you can play as the villains, correct me if I’m wrong but can’t you play as the willains in DW?

          2. But what kinda rules Skull Kid out is that the crashing Moon is an attack used by some one else and because the MOON is SK’s signature move it kinda lashes at the possibility. (But theres still a good chance)

  1. This is just turning out better and better. Happy to see both Darunia and Ruto playable! This is gonna be awesome! :D

  2. Awesome. This will be the second game where a Goron is playable. It’ll be fun to roll around at fast speeds like in Majora’s Mask.

  3. I wonder if Koei will sneak a Dynasty or Samurai Warrior into this game…

    I could imagine Lu Bu or Kuma Futaro being a bonus stage or character… Esp Lu Bu on Red Hare.

    Unrelated, but can we have a Samurai Warriors 3 on a next Gen console? I’d totally buy. ;)

    1. I think they want to save characters from Dynasty and/or Samurai Warriors for sequel games if Hyrule Warriors is successful. And I can agree with this. It’d be awesome to see Hyrule Warriors ending with Cia, or another villain, causing a ripple into other dimensions instead of just time.

  4. The game continues to amp up its roster and that’s what I like to see. Hyrule Warriors is definitely going to be The game to play. I forgot when it’s coming out, but as long as it comes out after the GC adaptor, it could be a fairly quick purchase for me!

    1. September twenty-something, I think 23 or 26, something like that. That adapter is probably gonna launch with Smash bros, or right before, so it won’t be out yet

  5. This is like a fuck you to Ubisoft by telling them how they can easily put female characters in their game.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      Haha you’re right, same with Smash Brothers…

      High Command is counter-attacking their pathetic “morals” in secret!

    2. To be fair, this is a completely different genre.. If Nintendo made an assassin’s game or something, they definitely would not consider characters like Peach as their first thought. XD

        1. No. When Nintendo creates an M rated game and then puts females in it, then my point would be invalid. :P

  6. It’s gonna be strange seeing zelda and sheik fighting alongside each other, I guess they are different zelda’s but still

  7. Now I’m almost at the point where I don’t want to get this anymore. This isn’t a Zelda game, this is a Zelda pervert’s game, Agitha? WTF? Is female Link next?

    1. The only perversion possibly is Cia’s breast, but it’s just a bunch of playable female characters. That’s like me saying to a game with a bunch of guy characters “This is a yaoi game.”

    2. It’s just female characters, dude. They aren’t prancing around in scantily clad armor or bikinis with their jibblies bouncing everywhere. More female characters doesn’t equal a pervert’s game. That would imply that the game is made just for men. It’s not, it’s made for Zelda fans. so…. Yeah. Don’t get the wrong idea.

    3. Just so y’know, only a few characters in the Warrior/Musou series have outfits that show off a lot of skin. Hyrule Warriors will be no exception. And a shitload of female characters doesn’t make it a pervert game. This isn’t going to be one of those Dead or Alive spin-offs with all the female characters in skimpy outfits because their boobs & ass are too big for their bikini. >.<

      1. I was cracking up too hard when people got pissed about Zelda showing some skin. XD Lol, and then I try to reason with them and they reply to me with something like: “But this is Zelda! They shouldn’t ruin her by making her outfit revealing!” And I’m like… But that’s no where near revealing. Lmao, ever heard of Dead or Alive? (And then they bring up the princess excuse again) Jeez, It’s like these people have never seen actual women before. XD

        1. I get annoyed with people like that. A little skin isn’t going to fucking kill them. It’s people like that that Nintendo of ‘Murica is so bad with sometimes censoring stuff that quite frankly doesn’t reallyy need censoring. Like Tharja’s ass when she’s fixing her bikini bottoms. Any moron that goes to the beach will see women doing that all of the freaking time!

  8. So Zelda is going to do a vanishing act during the game and sheik mysteriously pops up….. or she’s using it to infiltrate some base.

    I just hope it doesn’t try and make a story twist with this. Everybody and their mother knows Zelda is Sheik.

    1. If it makes you feel any better, it could be a Zelda from another time period using the Sheik form so everyone of that time period won’t confuse her with their time period’s Zelda. After all, they did say the game would have a time mechanic.

  9. Now we just need Rauru, Saria, & Nabooru then BOOM!!! We got the sages of Light, Forest, Fire, Water, Shadow, Spirit, & the 7th Sage represented in this game. Hurry up & give us those, Koei Tecmo. Since Dynasty Warriors has a little kid as one of the playable characters, we need someone in this game to represent that character archetype. Maybe she can use the Fairy Ocarina as her weapon in the same way Zelda can use the Wind Waker.

    1. Oh & a Sage of Earth & Wind wouldn’t be so bad, either, so maybe Makar & Medli can be revealed for Wind Waker week.
