Last night's Nintendo Direct brought a bevy of information regarding Hyrule Warriors and how it plays, but it also brought announcements of three new playable characters. Two of them, Zant and Ghirahim, were already known to be in the game, but we now that they will be playable; Zant will use a scimitar as his weapon while Ghirahim essentially uses a blade and himself as the weapon.
Ganondorf was a welcome, if not unsurprising addition as the third confirmed playable villain character. He sports a giant sword as his weapon, and his new design in Hyrule Warriors is similar to that of his Twilight Princess design, but with longer hair and combined with the garb he wears in Wind Waker.
In addition, it was announced that other DLC costumes for Ganondorf (including his Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess incarnations) would be provided to Club Nintendo members for a limited time after release. Other DLC costume sets for Link and Zelda ranging from Ocarina of Time to Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword were also announced as pre-order incentives from different retail outlets which will be detailed at a later point.
