Hyrule Warriors trailer offers character recap

Nintendo and Tecmo Koei continue to make a strong push for the upcoming action-fest Hyrule Warriors. One of the longest trailers to date has been released, recapping the game's playable characters and offering a look at some of the game's features.

Many of the previously-revealed Hyrule Warriors characters were on display, including Link, Zelda, Impa, Midna, and the newcomer Lana. Other newer characters were also revealed, such as Zelda's alter ego Sheik, the Goron Fire Sage Darunia, and the Zora Water Sage Ruto. There are also some other features shown off, like local co-op through the Wii U GamePad and a retro mini-game based on the original Legend of Zelda.

Watching the trailer, it's hard to shake the sense that this really just feels like a Dynasty Warriors game with a Zelda coat of paint slapped over it, but maybe that's a harsh assessment. Give the trailer below a look and judge for yourself.
