Announced via a special Hyrule Warriors Direct, Nintendo has revealed that the baddie will be playable in the upcoming Hyrule Warriors, coming September 19th exclusively to Wii U.
Alongside the opportunity to play as Ganondorf – and a host of other previously revealed characters from Zelda history - fans can also look forward to seeing both Zant from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Ghirahim from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword as playable characters when the game launches. With Zant’s bladed hands and summoning abilities, and Ghirahim’s formidable swordsman skills and powers of teleportation, players will be able to experience the most-feared enemies from The Legend of Zelda series like never before.
Also shown off in today’s Nintendo Direct is the all-new Adventure Mode, which will offer a nostalgic twist on the original The Legend of Zelda game by taking players through a recreated version of its overworld map, with each block on the grid representing one stage with its own unique victory conditions. Transported into the world of Hyrule Warriors each time, in true Zelda fashion players will be able to explore the map and locate rare items, while new weapons and some playable characters are only unlockable by advancing in this mode.
