Hyrule Warriors screenshots introduce Lana, Agitha, Zant, and Argorok

Plus, Link and Zelda get Twilight Princess-style costumes.

Hyrule Warriors

Nintendo has released a new set of screenshots showing off newly revealed Hyrule Warriors characters Lana and Agitha.

Lana is a “White Witch” who can manipulate powerful magic. She has a lively and honest personality, and puts her all into everything that she does. For the good of all Hyrule, she decided to help put an end to the misconduct of the game’s main antagonist Cia. She and Cia share some sort of connection, but doesn’t talk about it. In battle, she does a lot of running and jumping, making her fighting style dynamic.

Agitha, returning from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, is a young girl who collects golden insects that lost her way from another world. She is attacked by monsters, but is saved by Lana, who is searching for the Door of Reincarnation. She is a natural airhead and does everything at her own pace. Her atmosphere is generally warm, and she is always smiling. In addition to her parasol, she can fire giant beetles at enemies, as well as fly to the sky on the back of a gigantic butterfly.

Outside of the two new playable characters, we also meet two new enemy characters.

Zant is a man said to have ruled the shadow world with powerful forces snatched away from royalty. He was summoned by Cia from another world via the Door of Reincarnation. At first he might appeared composed, but he’s actually considerably hysterical and bizarre. He wields two curved swords, which he slashes recklessly in combat, and has a body slam attack that does damage across a wide area. He is also well off in magic-based attacks.

Argorok is the “Twilit Dragon” of the City in the Sky. A ferocious beast, even the Oocca and their advanced civilization have trouble containing him. His entire body is protected by black armor-like plating. He remains in the air as he attacks—predominantly through hot flames and gusts of wind—allowing him to invoke damage all around him.

Also in the screenshots, you’ll see “Twilight Earth,” a field that appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. In Hyrule Warriors, it is a “Shadow Area” that should have disappeared from the World of Light, but somehow appeared again.

Finally, you’ll also see special Twilight Princess costumes for Link and Zelda.

Hyrule Warriors is due out for Wii U on September 26 in North America and September 19 in Europe. View the screenshots at the gallery.
