By Jon Scarr

     Hyrule Warriors marks the first collaboration between Koei Tecmo and Nintendo on a Nintendo owned IP. First announced in December of 2013, Hyrule Warriors has been developed by Omega Force and the famous Team Ninja. Heavily influenced by the popular Dynasty Warriors series of games, Hyrule Warriors is an eloquent mix of hack and slash mixed with familiar locations and characters from The Legend of Zelda games. Offering a wide selection of familiar playable characters from the Legend of Zelda universe, players are able to choose from characters such as Link, Sheik, Zelda, Ruto, and Ganondorf.  That is not all, though as there will be a total of 13 playable characters, some will need to be unlocked while others will be selectable from the start.
