Nintendo dropped a new trailer for the upcoming Zelda game Hyrule Warriors recently. Not a lot is known about the game but we can glean a few things from the video. First off it looks like you can swing your sword at bad guys. Secondly, it looks like you can attack many bad guys at once.

Seriously though, the game play does look great and I imagine because of the increased horse power of the Wii U they can make a Zelda game with a ton more enemies on the screen.

What do you think of Hyrule Warriors? With every new game it seems the reason to pickup a Wii U is more compelling as Nintendo is really hitting a segment of gaming that is very unique and interesting.

An important note about this game-- it isn't exactly a Zelda game. It's a Dynasty Warriors game set in Hyrule. It's one of an increasingly long list of spinoffs to the juggernaut of a series. Tecmo Koei, the team behind the Dynasty Warriors series, is handling the development of this with models and such provided by Nintendo.

See this video for Dynasty Warriors 8 to see what I mean. The gameplay is very similar:

Wikipedia has more info about the series if you're interested:

All that said, this looks so incredibly fun. There's something about the Dynasty Warriors formula with the cartoonish Zelda graphics that's incredibly appealing to me.

Sweet! Now that will be my reason to get a Wii U. I wanted one when I first saw things about it before it was out. However, my desire for one slipped (I couldn't afford one anyway until recently). Thanks for the post!

So far there aren't enough games to warrant it for me. I'll get one when it's $100 or something.

That's a great price point for sure, i'd have few reservations to pick it up for that.

I frequent stores where the Wii U is front and center and the games look much more compelling to me than the XBone & PS4 Basketball/Shooter grind.

That said, who knows when i'll get one :D
