Edit: 720p shots from 4Gamer.net:

That's it, Tecmo-Koei finally updated the official website with screenshots/artworks from this week's Famitsu: you'll find everything there!

As you can see, the theme is Skyward Sword (SS maps, DLC costumes, items...)... and a bit of The Wind Waker, yup.

DLC costumes:

Character profiles:

Fi

Fi is the spirit of the "Goddess Sword" sealed inside the Statue of the Goddess in Skyloft. Once the worlds became fused together, Fi was transported from the world of Skyward Sword into the world of Hyrule Warriors.

With extensive knowledge and a highly analytical mind, Fi thinks things through logically and offers advice and wisdom to whoever holds the sword. Its body is made of a blue, metal-like material. Although it has the appearance of a young girl, Fi is genderless and does not have emotions.

Fi floats and moves in the air, and transforms into a sword to attack.

Ghirahim

Ghirahim is the Demon Lord who tried to resurrect his master; the leader of the demons who was sealed away.

He is enormously proud of himself, and vain about his own appearance.
He may appear to be formal and polite at first, but once he loses his temper, his brutal and cruel nature emerges.

He attacks with multiple knives in the air, or transforms himself into a giant blade to slash his enemy in a single sweep. He is skilled with swords of all kind, and also good at confusing his enemies with his teleportation ability and by summoning demons. When he loses his composure, he transforms to enhance his power and increase his attack abilities.


The Imprisonned

His entire body is covered in hard, scale-like protrusions. On top of his head you can see the stake that was once used to seal him away, but due to his massive size, you won't be able to attack it directly. There are, however, some soft, white areas at the tips of his toes....

The dark beast who was imprisoned in the Sealed Grounds in the world of Skyward Sword. He is believed to have the power to lead the world to destruction.

The Imprisoned is a massive, mountainous beast whose heavy stomping creates powerful shockwaves that can blow away anything nearby.

I'm glad KT(Omega Force and Team Ninja) is making this game. Gives me hope it'll actually be good instead of just a fanservice game.

Now let's hope they'll add the blacksmith :)

Yeah. Zelda's design in this game is fantastic. Almost feels like a hybrid between the seriousness of Twilight Princess Zelda and the playfulness and charm of Skyward Sword's.

Falling in love with this game with each update! If it's at least as good as WO3 with perhaps a bit higher IQ and polish I'll be very happy.

Edit: Also, that cat gif is amazing. What the hell is up with cats.

So, is Ghirahim playable?
Officially no, he's not in the playable section of the webpage. That said, though, it's a Warriors game, and as such I'd be very surprised if the villains weren't playable in *some* form.

I know. She's probably the most gorgeous Zelda to date.

Woah...cool! Skyward Sword love!

So, is Ghirahim playable?
Whilst not confirmed yet I wouldn't be surprised. Even if the villains have no story I expect them to be bonus characters you can play in Free Mode once you complete the story.

Pre-order probability went from 89% to 100% because of this thread.

I'm buying a Dynasty Warriors game on day 1. It's actually happening.

As someone who really dislikes the new Zelda design I'm delighted with those alt costumes.

Rest of the game looks more ridiculous by the day. Gonna be a must buy. Who would have thought I'd ever say that in any form about a Warriors game. I was so upset when this was announced, lol. Shows what I know.

I reserve the right to decimate Nintendo for this decision if the game turns out to play poorly.
