Nintendo’s Japanese website now shows how much space is needed for the DLC. On Switch, The Master Trials is a 456MB download. The Wii U version oddly requires 3.7GB of free space. Possibly a clue at maybe Switch file compression being better? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Master Trials launches this friday as apart of the Expansion Pass.

The long awaited Game “The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Warriors” got it’s First Commercial in Japan. The 30 seconds video shows a little bit of game play in a game mode that is based of classic Zelda. In the video it shows a brief bit of fighting with Zelda and Link in the midst of it all. So far the two locations shown in the video are Hyrule Field and Skyloft. This commercial may be 30 seconds long but like all other Japanese commercials, got straight to the point. It may not of revealed much but from the looks of it seems to be a very exciting game that I for one cannot wait to play.

Zelda Character Trailer of Hyrule Warriors.
Genre(s): Hack and slash, action
Platform(s): Wii U
Publisher(s): Tecmo Koei
Developer(s): Omega Force, Team Ninja, Nintendo SPD
Release Date (NA): September 26th, 2014
Impa from Hyrule Warriors (exclusively for Nintendo Wii U and co-developed by Omega Force, Team Ninja, and Nintendo SPD) has received a new Character Trailer today for the title set to release September 26, 2014. This hack and slash / action title blends together the format of the largely famed Dynasty Warriors titles from Tecmo Koei who is co-publishing the game with Nintendo, as well as the lore and universe that Legend of Zelda fans know and love.
Hyrule Warriors should provide a new and unique experience for the franchise while expanding the DW developers mindsets and at the same time providing Nintendo Wii U owners something Zelda to play while waiting for the highly anticipated Zelda Wii U game.
During an interview with Gameinformer, series director Eiji Aonuma teased the possibility of a mutiplayer component in the next Legend of Zelda title.
While discussing the possible changes to the main series, Aonuma was asked if multiplayer, which is a feature the Dynasty Warriors style spin-off Hyrule Warriors, would be present in the next Zelda game.
“The two-player functionality of Hyrule Warriors is actually something that has traditionally been done in the Dynasty Warriors series, but they’ve changed because of the hardware and the second screen on your GamePad, replied Aonuma.
“Instead of having a splitscreen on the television, you have one-player playing on the television and one on the GamePad. When I was talking back about making Zelda more than just a single-player experience? That’s something you will see in the future, maybe next year.”
Could Eiji be referring to the recently announced The Legend of Zelda Wii U shown at E3, or another game entirely. All signs for now point to it as the game has a release window for 2015. As for what form the multiplayer would take, be it co-op, competitive or mixture of both, remains to be seen. Fans could get something similar to Hyrule Warriors or the feature in Super Mario Galaxy, which sees the second player collect coins…hopefully it is the former.

Hype, anticipation, confusion, curiosity, doubt, belief, hope; these are some of the emotions that can be attributed to Nintendo Wii U gamers right now who prefer to pursue a seal of Nintendo approved exclusive title such as Hyrule Warriors. This title may end up getting its name changed before the final build is shipped to the public, and Nintendo commissioned Omega Force / Tecmo Koei in order to get it done. Nonetheless this is a great chance for fans of Link to experience something different while waiting for the project currently codenamed as ‘Zelda U’ or ‘Zelda Wii U’ by conspiracy watchers.
The following Official screenshots were released by Nintendo for Hyrule Warriors the Nintendo Wii U Exclusive announced late last year. These snapshots were taken from “the good angles” using in-game rendering. In addition to showing off some semblance of what the final product’s gameplay may end up being like, these screens also reveal a few landscapes Hyrule Warriors will feature and showcase the newly envisioned graphical presentation of well-known characters Link, Impa, Wizro, Valga, Shia, and The Black Witch.
Nintendo also released the following Concept Art images for Zelda – Hyrule Warriors. These images include enemies and potentially playable characters. Concept Art is created for use during development of the game and usually respresents the way characters will be represented in the final product, but may vary as they are something of a blueprint for developers to run off of.
So far, it’s unclear what the final name of Zelda – Hyrule Warriors will be or how the retail game will differ from the preview material we are being shown. If Nintendo’s track record is any indication though, extensive QA testing is hopefully on the horizon for this title’s development cycle. Hyrule Warriors is currently expected to release in Japan on August 28, 2014 and has not been given a release date for Europe / Australia / North America regions just yet. Also, in case anybody missed it, below is a convenient replay of the Hyrule Warriors 2013 Announcement Trailer released by Nintendo in December.
