Hyrule Warriors Legends; Medli Trailer

A short while ago, Nintendo announced that Medli from the Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker would be added as a new playable character in Hyrule Warriors Legends via DLC. However, while she was announced as a character a while back, we never saw much of her in game. A screenshot there, an artwork picture there… it was a small taste, but didn’t really suggest much gameplay wise.

But that’s now changed! Nintendo have released footage of her in Hyrule Warriors Legends at WonderCon 2016, as can be seen in this video:

So what’s interesting? Well, as somewhat fits a Rito character, she seems to use wind and air powers to take down enemies. Indeed, one even has her become some sort of tornado that tears through the forces of evil like a knife through butter! She also seems to use her harp as a weapon, though it doesn’t shine light like in the Wind Waker.

Either way, Medli looks to be a pretty cool character in Hyrule Warriors Legends. I just wish she was anything like this useful at fighting back in the Wind Waker itself…

Star Fox Zero; New Trailer!

It’s coming next month, so Nintendo have now released a new ‘game trailer’ for Star Fox Zero! Here it is:

So what’s interesting here? Well for one thing, I’d say the game looks a lot better than it did when it was first announced, and gives off the impression it might be the return to form the Star Fox series has long needed. Too much like Star Fox 64/Lylat Wars? Not really, since that’s exactly the kind of gameplay people have wanted for years. Would you rather have Star Fox, Lylat Force or something?

And the commentary is also something I guess. Okay, maybe it’s a little tired to keep rattling off the ‘do a barrel roll’ line now, but it’s at least not annoying like the voices in too many other Nintendo trailers and ads.

But what do you think? Are you excited for Star Fox Zero based on what you’ve seen in the trailer above?

Hyrule Warriors Legends; Launch Trailer!

Has there ever been a bad trailer for a Zelda game?

Eh, probably not. And what do you know, the North American trailer for Hyrule Warriors Legends is no exception!

So yeah, have you bought the game since its release yesterday? And if so, what do you think of it?

The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD; Launch Trailer!

It doesn’t feel like it, but the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD launches on Friday, March 4th. And to celebrate the game’s release, Nintendo UK have now uploaded a fantastic new trailer for the game!

Here it is:

There’s not really much that’s new being shown here (since the trailer focuses more on the original game’s characters and features rather than the new additions), but hey, it does show off the lovely remastered graphics style.

It also seems to show off Ganondorf quite prominently, indicating that Nintendo realises how well known the ‘hijacked by Ganon’ meme is and doesn’t see any reason to hide his involvement any more.

But what do you think about the new trailer? Does it make you excited for the Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD?

LEGO Star Wars the Force Awakens Announced

Officially at least, since the game’s existence was actually leaked by Amazon’s Italian branch a good few days ago. None the less, here’s the official trailer for the game, released by Disney on the offical Youtube channel for the franchise:

So what can we say about it? Well, not a lot really, the trailer is only the briefest possible glimpse at what’s likely to be in the game. None the less, it seems like everyone from the movie is here, from villain Kylo Ren to circular droid BB-8 to new characters like Rey and Finn. And it also seems to maintain the… somewhat light hearted sense of humour from the other LEGO adaptations too, which could be a breath of fresh air for some people.

But what do you think? Are you excited for the new LEGO adaptation of Star Wars the Force Awakens? Or would you rather see the characters in other games, like Disney Infinity or a non LEGO related adaptation?
