Here’s Plenty Of New Hyrule Warriors Information

Not only did the latest edition of Famitsu contain plenty of scans which showcased some of the familiar characters featured in Hyrule Warriors, but it also contained a wealth of interesting information. The latest edition of Famitsu goes into depth about several things including the boomerang and also the Skulltula collecting system.


  • You can obtain the boomerang from a treasure chest and use it as an item
  • If the boomerang hits an enemy, it will make it stand still for a short amount of time
  • You may also acquire strengthening item which transform the boomerang into the Gale Boomerang
  • Gale Boomerang springs forth a tornado which will make enemies float
  • If enemies are hit when they are midair they will take more damage than usual Skulltulas
  • There are 100 Gold Skulltulas in the world – One will appear as an enemy if certain special conditions are met
  • If you slay one, you will get an illustration piece – You can find information about Skulltulas in the stage select screen – You will know that a Skulltula has appeared from a spider web like marker on the map which also pins down the location
  • Then you have limited time to find and slay it
  • If you are nearby, you will hear a rustling sound – In the picture, one of the Skulltulas is under some large boulder so bombs are needed to uncover it
  • Skulltula appearance is related to used weapon/character, at least in some cases

Weapon bags

  • You can pick weapon bags from slayed enemies
  • Obtained weapons are random and you won’t know how good the weapon is until you clear the stage
  • You can also find “sealed weapons” from treasure boxes – These increase the amount of types of weapons that a character can use

Weapon information screen

  • Empty slot. You can fill these in the junk shop. At maximum you may have 8 skills.
  • Sealed skill. Needs to fill requirements to unlock. In the picture, you need to kill 3000 enemies
  • Skill (in picture “rupee increase”).
  • Attack power.
  • .Attribute. There are fire, water, lightning, light and darkness. If you use attribute that enemy is weak for, the damage will increase.
  •  Rarity of the weapon. More stars means rarer
  • Weapon name; in the picture it is a variation of Biggoron’s Sword

More details on weapons/shopping

  • Junk shop is part of the shopmall
  • In junk shop you can compose stronger weapons by switching skills
  • Ex: swap a skill from a powerful weapon into your favorite weapon
  • There are limits on how many skills of a same skill group you can have in one weapon at once – It seems that the weapon from which the skill is swapped from will turn into materials and so it is lost

  1. Fuck yes! The Gold Skulltulas return! Unlockable art for an art gallery does sound a bit better than the rewards you got for slaying Gold Skulltulas in Ocarina of Time & Majora’s Mask. Of course, a character unlock for reaching 50 Skulltulas & 100 Skulltulas would be great, too.

  2. Big fan of both Dynasty Warriors (including their spinoffs) and LoZ. Day 1 purchase for me. Reading about the information here, this is gonna be quite different from your regular Dynasty Warriors game

  3. The game is going to be great. But I really wish they would stop releasing so much information about it. Why do they want to spoil everything. When it finally releases there wont be any suprises left to be discovered, and thats a shame.

  4. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

    Some of thes epoints are kind of retarded…

    It’s typical babying information…

  5. i hate Dynasty Warriors, So I probably going to hate this game as well. I am just going to wait for the real Zelda on the Wii u.
