Live stream of 'Hyrule Warriors' coming this Thursday


It was announced today that on July 31, Nintendo is going to be unveiling even more footage from Hyrule Warriors, the highly anticipated Legend of Zelda hack'n'slash game for Wii U. Nintendo is going to be broadcasting live gameplay from the title. The game, which was first announced on December 18 of last year through a North American Nintendo Direct broadcast, is a special collaboration between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei, which is why the game is just like playing an entry from the Dynasty Warriors series with an incredible twist. If you've ever seen footage for the game, you'll be able to see the amount of creativity and effort that was put into it.

Nintendo is going to be broadcasting the live stream on NicoNico, a Japanese video sharing site similar to Youtube. For Japan, the stream starts at 2pm, but the rest of the world is going to have to wait until 1am EST. Luckily, the game comes out this September, so the wait won't be too long at all. Development on the game has finally been finished, so the development team may be working on extra polish.

The stream is going to feature appearances from the beloved Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto, Eiji Aonuma, the creator of the 'Legend of Zelda' series, and Yoichi Erikawa, president of Tecmo Koei. Sadly, for people who don't understand japanese, there won't be a translation available, but it's always possible that someone will eventually upload a translated video to Youtube. It's interesting that Nintendo isn't doing a typical Nintendo Direct for the title, but I'm sure they're holding the biggest announcements until early September.
