Ganondorf announced as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors

Posted on August 5, 2014 AT 03:24am

In the latest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo officially announced that Ganondorf will be a playable character in the upcoming Wii U-exclusive fighting game Hyrule Warriors.

Ganondorf will have a number of costumes available, and Club Nintendo members who register a copy of Hyrule Warriors by October 23 can access his Demon King costume. Nintendo also announced during the presentation that Ghirahim from Skyward Sword and Zant from Twilight Princess will also be available as playable characters.

Hyrule Warriors‘ adventure mode was also detailed. This mode uses the 8-bit visuals of the original The Legend of Zelda, and sees players exploring the map of Hyrule, where each block of the map is a stage with unique win conditions. In adventure mode players can unlock new playable characters and weapons.

You can watch the full presentation below.

Hyrule Warriors is set to launch September 19 in Europe and September 26 in North America exclusively for Wii U.
