Hyrule Warriors is coming very soon and as we find the release date getting closer we are also finding plenty of new details about the game. As part of E3 and some of the demo’s people have been playing I can confirm even moe details about the game which you will find below.

– At least 50 enemies on-screen at once
– Most of them don’t attack
– Most stand still until Link strikes them
– Y button: weak attack
– X button: slower but more powerful heavy attack
– Can do combos such as YYYX or button mash
– B button: dodge
– A button: special attack
– Different weapons in the game
– Link throws a bunch of bombs at once
– Can equip one item to the Zr button such as a health bottle or bombs
– D-pad cycles through items
– ZL: guard
– When you find the bombs, enemies stop attacking and the game cuts to Link doing his classic treasure finding animation where he holds the bombs to the sky
– Zelda has a similar animation
– Link’s spinning sword technique is flashier and knocks enemies up in the air
– Link completes the move by slamming enemies to the ground with a downward stab
– His special move (aka Musou Attack) is a spinning slash with more reach. Special moves are charged when you attack enemies
– While Link is fighting, Hylian Troops also fight
– They don’t mind if you accidentally hit them in the heat of battle
– Impa is in the demo and she gives Link tips
– Tutorials also have the classic “hey, listen” line when they pop up
– Castle Keep has a power up bomb
– This is a one use item with a huge blast radius
– Link can also collect Rupees dropped by enemies and glowing hearts to restore his life
– E3 demo ends with a King Dodongo boss fight who appears at the North Square
– King Dodongo breaths a cone of fire Link has to dodge
– The trick to beating him is throwing bombs in his mouth when he inhales
– Then Link can follow up with a combo ending with a fatal downward slash
– Zelda uses a glowing rapier to fight
– Has a combo where she darts left and right
– Zelda has 3 orbs
– You can charge these by pressing heavy attack and then use orbs as combo finishers like creating a golden triangle on the ground that damages all of the enemies inside it
– Zelda also has a combo ending with a barrage of arrows from a golden bow
– Zelda’s special move is a charged bow strike that knocks enemies back
– Lizardos was the first enemy with a weak point and if you hit him on the head you’ll knock him down
– Fill up your Focus Spirit meter with magic jars
– When this is full you can press R to get a speed and attack burst
– Your character will glow yellow and get a new combo too
– Zelda can use three elemental magic spells as her Focus Spirit combo
– Hyrule Warriors says “Zelda defeated Moblin” when you knock out a general
