Famitsu recently revealed three more characters that will be a part of Hyrule Warrior's growing character roster, and this time they're all from Ocarina of Time: Darunia, the Goron Sage of Fire; Princess Ruto, the Zora Sage of Water, and Shiek, Princess Zelda's Sheikah alter-ego.
Darunia is surprisingly only the second confirmed male character thus far, and he carries a large hammer as his weapon. He's also slower when it comes to movement though he can roll up into a ball and roll around when he needs to get around quickly. And thankfully, his signature dance from Ocarina of Time will make an appearance here as one of his special attacks.
Princess Ruto looks to have water-based attacks befitting her water theme, which makes sense, and it appears that Shiek uses multiple sai as well as the harp from Ocarina of Time. Expect to her more of their moveset detailed in the near future.
For now, all three of these characters brings the roster up to ten playable characters so far. Will there be more? It seems to be a safe bet seeing that we've been getting announcements of new characters every few weeks or so now, and Hyrule Warriors' release in Japan is still 3 weeks away.
Are you excited about Ruto, Darunia, and Shiek being playable?
