Hyrule Warriors Gets A Release Date; plus Famitsu scans

Hyrule Warriors

According to the latest issue of Famitsu – the Tecmo and Nintendo collaboration that meshes the Legend of Zelda series and the Warriors series – Hyule Warriors – will launch in Japan on August 14th.

Hyrule Warriors was previously scheduled for a Japanese summer release, I tend to put a lot of faith on Famitsu when it comes to this sort of information – so August 14th is pretty much a go.

Furthermore, the scans have revealed more information on the title – courtesy of Sundin.

I am cautiously optimistic about the game, as a Zelda fan, I will no doubt be purchasing the game. But the stale nature of the Warriors has me weary of the title. However, this could be a move that pays off well for both parties – as Zelda is very popular in the west and the Warriors does well in Japan – a win-win situation. Tecmo themselves have said they expect one million copies of Hyrule Warriors to be sold.
