Today's Nintendo Direct delivered the goods straight away this afternoon, with the announcement of Hyrule Warriors, a collaboration between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei that combines the worlds of Zelda and the long-running Warrior series.
Due on Wii U in 2014, Nintendo's Satoru Iwata stated that this wasn't the next instalment in the Zelda series, but rather an offshoot. The gameplay was a straight lift of the Warriors series melee combat, with Link smashing through a field swarming with hundreds of moblins. Elsewhere, Link's trademark weapons seemed to be intact, with him retrieving some from a chest with the trademark jingle appearing. The dungeon gameplay, however, likely won't figure.
