Hyrule Warriors or better known as Zelda Musō in Japan will not feature an online co-op mode, the game’s creators have announced via its official Twitter feed.
The announcement reads that players will not be able to team up with random online players to play the game. Instead, the developers have decided to stick with Local Play only with one player controlling a character using Wii U GamePad and another player using a Wii Remote or Wii U Pro controller.
オンラインによる協力プレイは対応していません。ご注意下さい。Game Padを使ったオフラインでの協力プレイは出来ますよ！"@_orngrg_: ゼルダ無双ってオンラインできるのかな？？？？？？"
