The Legend of Zelda’s coolest character is among the playable roster of Hyrule Warriors.


Sheik, who is also part of the Super Smash Bros. line-up, is among the latest batch of characters to be confirmed for the hack-and-slash title.

According to Gematsu‘s translation of early Famitsu leaks, Sheik, Darunia and Princess Ruto are all playable.

Darunia is the leader of the Hyrulean Gorons, and Ruto is Princess of the Zoras. All three characters are form Ocarina of Time and although at this stage you’d think the statute of limitations on spoilers had expired, we won’t discuss Sheik’s (awesome) identity here.

Famitsu has an eight-page spread on Hyrule Warriors this week apparently, with details on new features, so stay tuned over the next few days for more information.

Hyrule Warriors is a Wii U exclusive from Omega Force – the Dynasty warriors developer – in collaboration with Team Ninja and Nintendo. It’s due in September.

We’ve had a couple of new great Hyrule Warriors videos recently. One shows Zelda using the Wind Waker to take out foes,and the most recent one shows Link using the Power Glove.

Thanks, CVG. Screenshot above from Ocarina of Time, not Hyrule Warriors.
