Impa From Hyrule Warriors Gets Brand New Character Trailer [HD 1080P]

Hyrule Warriors - Impa

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.

The Legend of Zelda on Wii U May Feature Multiplayer

the-legend-of-zelda-wii-u

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.”

e3-2014-the-legend-of-zelda-wii-u-trailer-screenshot-link-and-epona

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.

Zelda – Hyrule Warriors (Wii U Exclusive) New Screenshots + Concept Art Released By Nintendo [Official]

Zelda - Hyrule Warriors

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.

Hyrule Warriors - Wii U Exclusive

For those of you who are unaware, there is a new Zelda-licensed game coming through the pipeline from the team that develops the Dynasty Warriors franchise. For now that game project is being called Hyrule Warriors. Once we got to see our first look back in december at the vision the teams at Nintendo and Tecmo Koei have been putting together it became clear that this game has serious fun factor potential and could provide a great diversion when not playing main chapter entries in The Legend of Zelda franchise.

Tecmo Koei and Nintendo have announced that they will be partnering up to create a new Fatal Frame: Zero title for the Wii U as part of a multi-media blitz for the title similar to what Square Enix did with Final Fantasy VII. This media campaign will include the new Fatal Frame Zero game, a movie, a novelization of the film and a graphic novel to flesh out the narrative. The game however hasn’t been announced for release outside of Japan, so fans of the series elsewhere will have to wait and see if the two companies have plans to bring the game to their respective regions.

Some of the Information in this article was sourced from Famitsu.

Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z Review

Yaiba

Yaiba: Ninaj Gaiden Z is a third-person action game set in the Ninja Gaiden universe. It is actually a spin-off, done in great looking cel-shade comic book style, starring the titular protagonist; a rogue ninja who goes on a rampage, slaughtering his fellow clan members before coming face to face with Ninja Gaiden series mainstay, Ryu Hayabusa. Despite his skill and prowess Yaiba Kamikaze was no match for the wielder of the dragon sword and fell in combat.

The murderous ninja doesn’t stay dead for long though, thanks to the mysterious Forge industries who replaces his lost left eye and arm with cybernetic enhancements. It seems there was a deadly outbreak and its spreading fast, turning people into zombies. Yaiba is tasked by the organization’s leader with finding a cure and putting a stop to the infection. Kamikaze wants nothing to do with any of it of course but the promise of being able to have his revenge on Hayabusa causes the ninja to reluctantly agrees and he sets out on his mission.

I went into Ninja Gaiden Z with low expectations of its story and sadly I wasn’t wrong. It’s a typical revenge tale bogged down with asinine dialogue, countless failed attempts at humor and a protagonist that isn’t all the interesting. Sure Yaiba is a bada**, there is no disputing that but he is also pretty crude and lacks any charisma to make up for it. Simply put, I played through the game never caring if Yaiba would actually get exact his revenge or not. The supporting characters; Miss Monday, Yaiba’s guide and her boss Del Gonzo are nothing to write home about either. Speaking of crude; the game itself is a pretty nasty affair that goes beyond its violence. I myself wasn’t offended but if the sight of two female zombies making out or suggested necrophilia ruffles your feathers, then you certainly will be.

yaiba-03-1

Shoryuke… wait, wrong game.

While I didn’t have high hopes for the game’s plot, I expected it to at least be fun to play. Good news is NGZ does feature better gameplay than plot, the bad news is that’s not saying much. Yaiba can perform light attacks with his blade, heavy attacks using his mechanical arm and area clearing attacks with its built-in flail. Mixing these different attacks together allows Yaiba to pull of some pretty cool combos, and the action moves along at a bloody fast and furious pace. Successfully countering an enemy’s attack will activate ‘Ninja Time’ which slows everything down for a brief moment, allowing him the land several counter attacks unchallenged. Once he has killed enough zombies, Yaiba can activate ‘Blood Lust’ mode, which makes him temporarily invincible while increasing his speed and attack power. It’s a great feature to use to quickly defeat a large group of enemies and it looks cool as well. Executing zombies will allow the ninja to replenish his health.

Killing zombies earns Yaiba experience points, allowing him to level up and earn ‘perk points’. These points are used to purchase a range of new abilities; from new combo moves to increased ‘Blood Lust’ and more. The zombies themselves come in all shapes and sizes and some even have elemental powers such as fire and lightning. These special zombie types up the level of challenge within the game; take too much fire damage for instance and Yaiba will start to burn, while too much electrical damage means his mechanical arm overloads and becomes useless for a brief period of time.

Button mashing won’t get you very far when these zombies come into play, as they definitely require more skill in order to defeat them. Executing them results in Yaiba taking a body part and using it as an additional, albeit temporary weapon (Using a clown zombie’s arms as nunchucks). One of the cool things about the elemental zombies is combining them to create chemical chain reactions to take out larger groups. Through a fire zombie into a lightning one and watch as a storm of fire and lightning rains down upon them. The game features online leaderboards as it scores you based on your performance in each mission; how long it took to finish, your max combo chain, if died and how many collectibles you found. It’s great for those who love competition but do not care for multiplayer.

Yaiba-Ninja-Gaiden-Z_4

Yaiba slices n dices.

It is unfortunate then, that the game’s combat quickly becomes repetitive about halfway through; thanks to a very limited moveset. It continues to suffer due to annoyingly difficult enemy encounters. Nothing says fun quite like fighting a huge group of zombie grunts while being bombarded by multiple elemental zombies’ ranged attacks, only to finally defeat them all and be met with another similar wave seconds after…. on multiple occasions. The special zombie types are actually more challenging than the game’s bosses, which is somewhat mind boggling. To make matters worse, players will be fighting the game’s camera just as much they will the undead.

The camera stays fixed on Yaiba but it is often at an angle that makes it difficult to keep track of the anti-hero when the action picks up considerably. It will also obscure your view on enemies which results in Yaiba getting hit from an attack off screen, which can sometimes end in an unfair death. You can’t directly control the camera which makes it worse and while their is an option to set it to close view (It is set to wide shot by default), that honestly makes it worse as it gets too close and you will have to deal with off screen attacks more frequently.

The game features some puzzles and platforming elements to break up the action but they aren’t that exciting either. The puzzles are pretty easy and require the player to utilize the zombies around them, but they aren’t all that clever or fun. In fact they are down right boring despite the attempts at making them humorous. The platforming segments are more fun as Yaiba runs along walls and other structures in true ninja fashion while using his arm to swing around like Spider-man. Unfortunately the developers felt the need to have the game hold your hand the entire time by highlighting where you need to jump and letting you know when you have to swing. There are some obstacles Yaiba will run into while platforming but at the end of the day the segments are still too easy and not as fun as they could have been.

Once you beaten the game (and the ridiculously boring final Boss), you’ll unlock the 2D arcade mode. This mode pays homage to the retro 2D games of old, such as the original Ninja Gaiden, complete with pixelated cutscenes and badly translated dialogue. Yaiba will face off against the same zombies as in the regular story mode but this time there is only one difficulty and it a tough one. There really isn’t any reason to play this mode after you’ve already suffered through the main game.

Final Verdict: Ninja Gaiden Z started off strong but quickly lost its luster thanks to its problematic camera, repetitive combat and annoying difficulty. Its main protagonist is painfully lame and its story predictably bad but at least it looks good and has decent platforming elements. Thing is that is not nearly enough to justify its $60 price tag, or anything over $10. Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z is a mediocre experience that deserves to be missed.

Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Complete Edition PS4 Review

dynasty-warriors-8-xtreme-legends_td-605x300

After being released in July of last year for current gen consoles, Omega Force and Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors 8 has finally received its standalone ‘Xtreme Legends’ expansion. It has been bundled togther with the full game as Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends Completed Edition for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Is it a worthwhile update, or just fluff?

The game features five story campaigns that loosely tells the historical tale of the “Three Kingdoms”. Four of them make a return from DW8 but the fifth is all new and focuses on the strongest warrior of them all; Lu Bu and tell his side of the story. Each campaign will take around 5 hours or less to complete depending on skill level. If you’ve played four them on the PS3 version already and don’t really feel all that enticed to do it again, the game now features an ‘Ultimate’ difficulty level to make things even more challenging and new what if storylines to unlock.

Dynasty-Warriors-8-Xtreme-Legends

Lu Bu is not impressed with Chen Gong.

Gameplay is largely unchanged from the previous version and for now that’s okay as the game is still fun as hell to play despite its simplicity. The game continues the trend of making the player a one man/woman army, as you hack and slash your way through large groups of enemy soldiers all the while racking up a ridiculously high combo chain with flashy over the top attacks. Everything from DW8’s gameplay is back; Commander Affinity, Storm Rush, and Rude Awakening, the improved character progression, its all there (Read the DW8 Review for more info, if you are unfamiliar).

This time around, every playable character (A total of 80, including the 5 new ones) has gained a second EX attack for their weapons and a little more variety to the combos. They are also all unlocked from the get go, no need to play through any modes in order to get them. While this may bother some who would prefer to earn the characters, it makes sense as most of players who purchase the CE would most likely have played DW8 on PS3. This game features the option to transfer your saved data from the PS3 version to the PS4 version, so rather than anger those who have leveled up an unlockable character, only to find them locked, Omega Force decided to have everyone available from the onset. That’s what I’m assuming anyway.

New weapons are available to unlock and they add more variety to the combat. Many of the weapons are pretty outlandish but are fun to use, so unless you are the type that sticks with just one weapon, there are plenty of reasons to experiment. Combine that with the ability to equip any two weapons on your officers and you are looking at a plethora of combinations to go into battle with. Yes the game can still get repetitive, the camera will occasionally get in the way and the frame-rate will drop when the actions get too hectic on screen but it still manages to be quite fun. It’s even better when playing with friend, which can do either locally or online. The game also supports cross across the PS3, PS4 and PS Vita versions. That’s not a feature I have been able to test out but when I do I will update. Anyway check out this sweet combo. Seriously, where else can you pull of insanely high combo chains such as this?

 

If I only I could have gotten it over 9000… 🙂

Yeah I know there isn’t any sound, that footage was recorded using the PS4’s game capture feature and for some reason there isn’t any audio when recording this game. With other games I own, it works fine but with not this. It could be an issue on Sony’s side or it could be the game itself. This is just a warning to those looking to record and share their footage using the PS4, it may happen to you. This doesn’t affect the score in anyway.

Ambition mode makes a return and has been revamped for the better; while in Dynasty Warriors 8 the end goal was to build a Tongquetai Palace worthy of a visit from the emperor, this time around your overall goal is even more ambitious. Once building the Palace has been accomplished, players will set their sights on putting an end to the chaos and uniting all of Han China.

Gaining allies, fame and materials by engaging in battles is still at the core of this mode, though more strategic elements have been implemented. Players can assign their allies to be their bodyguards on the battlefield, each of them possessing a ‘support’ and ‘battle’ skills. You also order them to use these skills when you see fit. They can also be upgraded by using your allies’ knowledge. Doing so however, results in that ally becoming a free officer once more who no longer serves under you but can be recruited again should you defeat them.

When it is time to unite all of China, players must expand their territory by occupying as many strategic locations as they can. Whenever a territory is challenged by the enemy, they must defend it by defeat however many soldiers are required as well as their commanding officer. Ambition mode continues to live up to its name and is worth playing, even if you’ve already done so in the previous game. It still feels familiar but features enough new content to feel fresh as well.

Free mode, which allows you take any warrior into battle on any stage featured in story mode, has also been tweaked this time around. It now features battle objectives that gives you the chance to unlock items and earn experience points to help develop your characters. Much like in ambition mode, players can also assign up to 3 bodyguards into battle making use of their skills. After beating each stage, the game now evaluates your performance based on how long it takes you to complete it, the number of enemies you’ve defeated etc, and scores a grade between A and E. These new changes are a welcomed addition, that both encourages players to achieve a higher score and delivers a more rewarding experience.

dynasty-warriors-8-with-xtreme-legends-screenshot-ME3050201820_2

 Lu Lingqi tearing it up on the battlefield!

To add even more replay value to this game, the popular ‘Challenge mode’ makes its return to the Dynasty Warriors series, having been left out of DW8. It features five special trials, each with their own objectives and online leaderboard rankings so you can compare your scores with friends and other players around the world. While completing in these trials players will come across Weapon Element Gems, picking them up will give their character an assist; from an increase in attack strength with the ‘Gale’ gem, to causing explosions with the ‘Conflagration’ gem and taking out large groups of enemies.

  • Rampage – Players must defeat as many enemies as they can before the timer runs out.
  • Bridge Melee – Knocking as many enemies over the edge is the name of the game in this trial.
  • Speed Run – Run to the goal at the end of the stage as quickly as possible, while doing your best to avoid countless obstacles including plenty of enemies that want you dead.
  • Arena – Simply fight against every playable warrior until you run out of health.
  • Inferno – You must defeat every single enemy in the stage before time is up.

While ‘Bridge Melee’ and ‘Speed Run’ are the least fun to play and should probably be avoided unless you want to strive for the trophies, the remaining three modes are entertaining enough.’ Arena’ is the most fun, thanks to the increasing level of challenge that comes with the lack of pickups; opponents don’t drop anything to aid you in battle except the occasional gem. So no healing, no increased stats, just all skill and maybe a little bit of luck. You can also team up with a second player in ‘Tag Team Match’ and tackle the high scores together. It is definitely a mode worth getting into.

The visuals have seen a nice little upgrade as well; improved textures, better lighting, even flashier special attacks, slightly more realistic looking face models and more detailed armor and environments. The graphics don’t scream next-gen, when compared to titles such as inFamous: Second Son or Ryse: Son of Rome but it still looks pretty good and is a step in the right direction for the series.

DynastyWarriorComparison

PS3 on the left, PS4 on the right.

The series continues to feature a pretty good soundtrack, though it won’t be to everyone’s taste. If you don’t like metal, then this game will probably make you hate it more as it constantly assaults you with it. If you do like it however then cutting your way through countless enemies will be that more exciting.

As usual the voice acting continues to be bad, with a few exceptions. While it may be a part of the series charm for many, it still lessens any impact the game attempts with its story telling, as it is difficult to take it seriously. The sound design is still pretty much the same and the dialogue during battles gets very repetitive and quickly dulls the coolness of hearing them talk through the Dualshock 4’s speakers. It is best to just turn the speakers off by the way, as you will have to deal with the controller speakers echoing the dialogue coming through your Tv speakers. Sadly the only way to avoid it is to shut it off entirely.

Final Verdict: The last Dynasty Warriors already offered a ton a replay value and Xtreme Legends Complete Edition is no different. With new what if storylines, an all new story starring the badazz Lu Bu, welcome improvements to existing modes and the revival of challenge mode, this game shows why this series continues to have such staying power. Yes it is far perfect, yes it gets repetitive but it is still undeniably fun. Any hardcore DW fan with a PS4 or plan on purchasing one should pick it up. If you own a PS4 and have never played a Dynasty Warriors title, now would be a good time to give it a shot.
