To continue celebrating the Zelda franchise from last week, I thought I’d go back to a game that I haven’t played in a while since it’s released. Hyrule Warriors is a spin-off game of the franchise that combines the Legend of Zelda characters with the action of the Dynasty Warriors series, a franchise that I’m afraid I’m not as familiar with. Nevertheless, it was tons of fun kicking ass as these characters!
How much fun was it to actually play as the Princess of Destiny herself? Far from a helpless princess, Zelda was grace and elegance as she stabbed enemies with her sword. It was awesome seeing her on the front lines to defend her home and kingdom.
Of course the hero himself is on this list. Link, as always, is a great character to control and it felt right being him as he combated the waves of enemies on the fields.
Impa, in almost any incarnation, was always a fascinating character to me (I may be biased a bit toward the Sheikah race, but I digress), with her prowess and dedication to Zelda and the rest of the royal family. Her big-ass sword was a joy to use when cleaving through enemies!
Fi’s beautiful design and dancer-like movements quickly made her one of my favorite characters in Skyward Sword, and it wasn’t a surprise to me that she was one of my preferred warriors in this game.
Some of you may have been able to guess that Sheik was on my list. Besides the daggers that are used for quick attacks, the Harp is also a unique weapon. With the familiar and beautiful music powering Sheik’s attacks, it was definitely a fun warrior to be!
What are your favorite Hyrule Warriors characters?
