Sheik’s Music In Hyrule Warriors Is So Bad It Hurts
We just recently showed off a gameplay trailer for Darunia in Hyrule Warriors, featuring a giant hammer and some rocks, but Sheik’s new clip takes it to a whole new place. Here, we’ll get to see Zelda² face off against an army of skeletons in some spooky dungeons.
These skeletons look like a creepier version of Mario’s Dry Bones. Given that Hyrule Warriors is a take on Tecmo Koei’s Dynasty Warriors, the hordes of enemies are quite large.
It looks like Sheik is primarily a crowd fighter. Most of the skills shown off focus on areas of effect.
For instance, a harp song traps a group of foes into a pool of continuous damage. Another ability calls forth a whirlwind that surrounds the player, either in huge or tiny form.
Sheik is also a spell caster, much more than a lot of the other fighters we’ve seen for Hyrule Warriors. More magic in the move arsenal is seen in fiery explosions and a whirling typhoon.
Later in the clip, Sheik readies a large square and waits for enemies to enter it. This triggers a special captured attack where Sheik lashes out with a flurry of blows that spews out rupees. Another flurry can be seen as a forward strike.
Hyrule Warriors releases in Japan next month. Those lucky devils can even get a special Triforce clock with their purchase.
Other regions need to wait for September to land this collaboration between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei. Hyrule Warriors is a Wii U exclusive.
There will be additional costumes in the game for characters like Link and Zelda, which represent different iterations of the series.
