In a surprise reveal today, Koei Tecmo released a trailer on their official YouTube channel for a Hyrule Warriors game coming to Nintendo 3DS, which appears to be a planned announcement at E3. The trailer is all in Japanese, so much of the information on the game is not yet known, but they did reveal two new playable characters: Tetra and King Daphnes, both from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.

Tetra and Daphnes will also be playable in the Wii U version of the game by some means, as the last few seconds of the trailer seem to indicate. Those few seconds also show that the game is
not exclusive to the New Nintendo 3DS, as some might expect given the number of enemies on screen at a time, but rather available on all models. It’s yet unconfirmed whether Hyrule Warriors 3DS is a portable version of the Wii U game or an entirely new adventure, but we’ll keep you in the loop as information arises.

For now, you can enjoy the lovely trailer above.

UPDATE: The original video has since been taken down. Please enjoy the trailer as uploaded by our friends at Zelda Informer.

Our Verdict


Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
