KoopaTV Live Reacts To Hyrule Warriors Direct!

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Sakurai influences? Hope that last part of the Direct influenced him.

Welcome to the first KoopaTV live reaction log since E3 a month and a half ago! Miss us? I'm Nintendork 13 13 in this log and RawkHawk2010 is back from San Francisco. We talk in our AIM Blast [Koopa Keep], and yesterday night there was a Hyrule Warriors Nintendo Direct. You can watch it here and read our thoughts as the video goes along!


Nintendork 13 13 10:59 pm
    yo
    http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/08-04-2014/
    26 minutes in length!

 RawkHawk2010 11:00 pm
    got my gamepad

 Nintendork 13 13 11:00 pm
    IT STASRTED
    Characters doing all sorts of fancy stuff.
    Ridley
    ....erm Argorok

 RawkHawk2010 11:01 pm
    This is NOT Iwata.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:01 pm
    Bowing Japanese dude.
    Yosuke Hayashi from Tecmo.
    Directly to you.

 RawkHawk2010 11:01 pm
    Dude

 Nintendork 13 13 11:01 pm
    Iwata replacement?

 RawkHawk2010 11:01 pm
    I thought this was an Iwata fill-in.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:01 pm
    lol

 RawkHawk2010 11:01 pm
    Yeah.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:01 pm
    Guess Iwata can retire in peace.
    Lock on, close the gap, and find the opening.
    Using Y to open treasure chests is NOT a gameplay element from the Zelda series.

 RawkHawk2010 11:03 pm
    lolllll

 Nintendork 13 13 11:03 pm
    "Notice the familiar music when the player acquires bombs!"
    Music is not a gameplay element!

 RawkHawk2010 11:03 pm
    This is a bad Direct.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:03 pm
    But we're only 3 minutes in!
    I like the map.
    It's like Splatoon!

 Nintendork 13 13 11:03 pm
    Entering Keeps!
    (Koopa Keep?)

 RawkHawk2010 11:04 pm
    That don't look nothing like King Dodongo.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:04 pm
    It has scales and a mouth.
    ...yeah.
    And random horns.

 RawkHawk2010 11:04 pm
    I wonder if Link ever does the Triforce Slash.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:04 pm
    Dat common Zelda convention to use the items you've just acquired.
    From Smash?

 RawkHawk2010 11:05 pm
    yes

 Nintendork 13 13 11:05 pm
    Link should've gotten a different FS.
    Or at least Toon Link.
    woah

 RawkHawk2010 11:05 pm
    what is this music

 Nintendork 13 13 11:05 pm
    Hookshot climbing walls.
    Didn't know that was there.
    It's familiar.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:06 pm
    Gohma wasn't in Skyward Sword.
    ...Was it?

 RawkHawk2010 11:06 pm
    Oh.
    It's from A Link to the Past.
    And I don't...think.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:06 pm
    There was that scorpion thing.

 RawkHawk2010 11:06 pm
    That guy was all fucked up.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:06 pm
    Eiji Aonuma.
    Kakariko music.
    Cucco.

 RawkHawk2010 11:06 pm
    cuccos?

 Nintendork 13 13 11:06 pm
    Black Ninja Cucco?

 RawkHawk2010 11:06 pm
    I thought they were cuccoos.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:07 pm
    (Come on you should know what they are.)
    (Of all people.)
    Cucco Assist Trophy in All Star Mode?
    ...oh wait they're normal items

 RawkHawk2010 11:07 pm
    wheeeeeeeeeeeere's malon

 Nintendork 13 13 11:07 pm
    Koopa Keep Fouring with Cucco item?

 RawkHawk2010 11:07 pm
    medli*

 RawkHawk2010 11:08 pm
    heroin
    our heroin princess zelda

 Nintendork 13 13 11:08 pm
    Arrows of light from Wind Waker!
    ...and Twilight Princess.
    Impa trying to be a butch Cloud Strife.
    Sheik?
    ...Different person from Zelda? <_<

 RawkHawk2010 11:09 pm
    I don't like how shreddy some of this music is.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:09 pm
    "There might be players who don't know." woops I just spoiled

 RawkHawk2010 11:09 pm
    I feel like I'm at an Avenged Sevenfold concert.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:09 pm
    Three beloved Zelda games
    OoT
    TP
    Skyward Sword
    (poor Wind Waker)
    Darunia.
    Donkey Kong expy.
    Princess Ruto.

 RawkHawk2010 11:10 pm
    WTF
    That giant water dome.
    That's stolen from Naruto.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:10 pm
    Midna and Agatha from TP.

 RawkHawk2010 11:10 pm
    Not really that surprising, I guess.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:10 pm
    also note you're like 2 seconds in front of me.
    I don't like Agitha.

 RawkHawk2010 11:10 pm
    who does

 Nintendork 13 13 11:10 pm
    (It's spelled with an 'i' in the middle, apparently.)

 RawkHawk2010 11:10 pm
    not even pedophiles like her

 Nintendork 13 13 11:11 pm
    ZANT  is playable?

 RawkHawk2010 11:11 pm
    no
    he's a villain.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:11 pm
    uh
    They just said Zant is playable.
    FI?
    I thought it was pronounced
    uh
    Fee

 RawkHawk2010 11:11 pm
    me too

 Nintendork 13 13 11:11 pm
    Not Feye
    Ghirahim also appears.
    "He's a playable character"

 RawkHawk2010 11:11 pm
    o

 RawkHawk2010 11:12 pm
    So is this game even gonna be localized.
    voice-wise.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:12 pm
    IN addition to past characters, here is our version of Sonic original characters for the Zelda games.
    BookCubes
    ooh
    Lost Woods music.
    "Next up, grass cutting."

 RawkHawk2010 11:13 pm
    Lana basically serves the purpose that the humans serve in Kingdom Hearts
    Nintendo wouldn't let Kecmo do certain things with Zelda people so they had to make their own I bet.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:13 pm
    "I heard they made a stage where all you do is chop grass, but unfortunately it didn't make the cut."
    (pun)
    Giant Summoning Gate Cucco.

 RawkHawk2010 11:14 pm
    I like the current music.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:14 pm
    Focus Blast
    erm
    Focus Spirit
    To buff your character temporarily.
    This music is from...
    ...OoT's minigames.

 RawkHawk2010 11:14 pm
    capabara

 Nintendork 13 13 11:14 pm
    wtf it's a giant bombchu
    "back in a bit!"
  
    *boom*

 RawkHawk2010 11:15 pm
    capabaras can disembowel humans with a single kick!
    ...wait that's cassowaries.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:15 pm
    Cupachabras
    Skyloft, Lake Hylia.

 RawkHawk2010 11:15 pm
    I've never heard Lake Hylia's music.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:16 pm
    This isn't what it sounds like.
    Twilight Field.

 RawkHawk2010 11:16 pm
    as in

 RawkHawk2010 11:16 pm
    the music playing on this Lake Hylia

 Nintendork 13 13 11:16 pm
    (Because I guess they can't just call it "Hyrule")

 RawkHawk2010 11:16 pm
    Link's Awakening music.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:16 pm
    yay
    Chain Chomp?!!?

 RawkHawk2010 11:16 pm
    what the fuck

 Nintendork 13 13 11:16 pm
    OH
    THIS IS WHY SAKURAI DID THE
    POTD THE WAY IT WAS

 RawkHawk2010 11:16 pm
    huh

 Nintendork 13 13 11:17 pm
    because tezuka song
    from link's awakening
    which is where chain chomp is from

 RawkHawk2010 11:17 pm
    don't you mean
    totatka's song

 Nintendork 13 13 11:17 pm
    yeah
    Totaka's song is from the game that assist trophy is from
    which is in LA

 RawkHawk2010 11:17 pm
    gust bellows

 Nintendork 13 13 11:17 pm
    and the guy is friends or whatever with Prince Richard of the frogs in LA
    with chain chomp.

 RawkHawk2010 11:18 pm
    i like this music.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:18 pm
    "Some of them may have special abilities... like skills."
    Like...
    ......
    KID ICARUS UPRISING
    ?
    FUSING
    WHJAT TBRTDFBNGFH
    WEAPON FUSING
    THIS IS UPRISING
    Enemies dropping weapons and fusing with skills!

 RawkHawk2010 11:18 pm
    Weapon fusing is pretty must standard in video games now.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:19 pm
    Kaepora's song.
    ...sh
    It's the Moon.

 RawkHawk2010 11:19 pm
    wtf
    That's stupid.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:19 pm
    Hookshot
    ...
    huh

 RawkHawk2010 11:19 pm
    Dumb move.
    The moon.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:19 pm
    Where the fuck did the moon come from in that shit?

 RawkHawk2010 11:19 pm
    It fucking went through a wall.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:19 pm
    Another exciting mode.
    Oh hey they spelled Ganon correctly.
    All new adventure mode.
    wtf
    Map in adventure mode.
    Every block is a stage.
    Oh phew I thought it'd be 8-bit

 RawkHawk2010 11:20 pm
    I like this.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:20 pm
    It's like
    Sakurai checklist
    adventure.
    Each stage has a condition to proceed.
    And there are victory prizes in some of them!

 RawkHawk2010 11:21 pm
    THIS IS HOW EVENT MATCHES SHOULD BE

 Nintendork 13 13 11:21 pm
    A Sakurai checklist instead of a menu?

 RawkHawk2010 11:21 pm
    Yes.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:21 pm
    ew skulltulas

 RawkHawk2010 11:21 pm
    Oh fuck
    Not skullatas.
    These things were never a good idea.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:21 pm
    Well they're in Hyrule Warriors too.
    "You've collected an illustration piece."
    2-player co-op.
    With family and friends.

 RawkHawk2010 11:22 pm
    yeah yeah

 RawkHawk2010 11:22 pm
    gamepad screen
    we get it

 Nintendork 13 13 11:22 pm
    Wii U GamePad means no split screen.
    yeah
    Well it's still a good use. >_>

 RawkHawk2010 11:23 pm
    "spinoff"

 Nintendork 13 13 11:23 pm
    Off-TV Hyrule Warriors.
  

 RawkHawk2010 11:23 pm
    I thought "spinoff" was a pejorative.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:23 pm
    Available September 26.
    Well it's not.
    That's it for today's presentation.
    *bow*

 RawkHawk2010 11:23 pm
    ganondooooooooooorf

 Nintendork 13 13 11:23 pm
    "For a final bit..."
    Tingle?

 RawkHawk2010 11:23 pm
    WHOA

 Nintendork 13 13 11:23 pm
    Ganondorf

 RawkHawk2010 11:24 pm
    IT's like Ganondorf and Demise fused together!

Ganondorf! Is playable for the first time outside the Super Smash Bros. series.

Nintendork 13 13 11:24 pm
    He hasn't gotten a haircut in a while.

 RawkHawk2010 11:24 pm
    OH
    OH
    OH
    This is why he hasn't been revealed in Smash yet!

 Nintendork 13 13 11:24 pm
    IS THIS GONNA BE GANONDORF IN SMASH

 Nintendork 13 13 11:25 pm
    Yo they did the thing like a Smash trailer.
    At the end.
    AHH
    GANONDORF HOLDS A HEART CONTAINER
    wtf special offer
    to Club Nintendo members
    Demon King Costume Set DLC.
    (IT allows Ganondorf to have a haircut)
    LIGHTNING BOLT like Demise.

 RawkHawk2010 11:25 pm
    Why would anyone wanna play as any other Ganonforf.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:25 pm
    Ocarina of Time costume sets from "certain retailers"
    Or a "Twilight Princess" costume set from certain retailers.
    Or a Skyward Sword costume set.
    Skyward Sword costume set the worst.
    Keep an eye out for where to get these!
    And it's over.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:27 pm
    So...
    ...Thoughts?
    ...I think our problems with the game are still a thing.

 RawkHawk2010 11:28 pm
    I liked Ganondorf.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:29 pm
    All flash over substance.

 RawkHawk2010 11:29 pm
    And all I got from it is that Smash Ganondorf is gonna be in Smash.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:29 pm
    To try to make you forget about the underlying monotony.
    Oh.
    Yeah.
    erm

 RawkHawk2010 11:29 pm
    Erm

 Nintendork 13 13 11:29 pm
    Not Smash Ganondorf.

 RawkHawk2010 11:29 pm
    Yeah.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:29 pm
    That Ganondorf.

 RawkHawk2010 11:29 pm
    Although
    He WILL be Smash Ganondorf....eventually.
    Maybe.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:29 pm
    Demise-Ganondorf combo.

 Nintendork 13 13 11:30 pm
    People think Ganondorf will be replaced by Demise.
    Doesn't matter if they're morphed into one dude!

 RawkHawk2010 11:30 pm
    Yeah.
    Demise was cool.
    But it's cooler for Ganondorf to steal what was cool about him.


Will anyone at KoopaTV actually buy Hyrule Warriors, or are we too obsessed with Super Smash Bros. to not care about much else? Stay tuned to KoopaTV to find out the answers to these important questions!

  1. Adventure Mode and Ganondorf made me more inclined to get this.

    1. I was startled at how it got a 36/40 at Famitsu!

      ...But apparently Famitsu is the series' highest review score anyway.

  2. He better have some pretty darn broken moves if he gets into SB4.

    Like... Falcon Punch in Brawl. That level of broken.

    2. I didn't even know you could comment here via AIM.

    3. ...Erm, like, we use AIM for instant messenging. Not for commenting on blogs. That's just weird.

      Ganondorf should have dual-swords like Wind Waker.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, I can tell.
      YES. Dual Swords. That would be so amazing.
      Just making the Antagonist Characters... Uhh... Scarier.

      Delete
    5. He also has the dual swords in Hyrule Warriors as you can see.
      They're just... different swords.

      Delete
    6. No kidding, right?
      I prefer to have an Avatar of Maya freaking Fey than having an I and a broken link, (In my case) but to remain on-topic again... Yeah, how about we give Bowser and Ganondorf dual swords in Smash? Or we can give them bow/swordthings like Pit's.

      Delete
    7. Bowser? Dual swords? That's not even canon.

      Bowser is more than fine enough as he is in Smash 4. Or did you forget (or miss) his champion performance?
      http://koopatv.blogspot.com/2014/07/king-bowser-is-champion-of-smash-3ds.html
      That's not even KoopaTV propaganda. That actually really happened!

      Oh, I guess Pit dual-wields those sword-things. Someone on Smashboards said that there haven't been any dual-wielding characters in Smash yet!

      On that note, I just want to make some snark about how a toooon of dudes in Hyrule Warriors are just sword characters (including two that are literally sentient swords) while Chrom was excluded from Smash 4 for being a boring sword guy.

      Delete
    8. Yeah, it's not close to Canon. But, why not make the Overpowered and Broken more Overpowered and Broken, y'know? Especially if it's Bowser.

      Sentient Swords? Sounds like a certain Pokemon. Aegislash... Honedge... Doublade...
      But yeah, swords are super generic, although, pretty cool, they do get old when EVERY character has the same stupid short-range weapon. Although, for Hyrule Warriors, I would let it through, as that fits with the LoZ canon, as well as the setting and such.

      Delete
    9. Well, the days of a character being broken (Meta Knight, Brawl) are presumably over since Sakurai actually cares about balance!

      (Say, has anyone made Doublade-esque art of Fi and Ghirahim?)

      But in LoZ plenty of dudes use bows and lances! (Not many axes.) Although sometimes their swords have energy beams, so there goes the short-range part, right?
