Nintendo has announced Hyrule Warriors, featuring playable co-op characters Zelda and Midna, will launch for the Wii U on September 26, 2014, in North America. Europe will receive the game on September 19.

Hyrule Warriors pits The Legend of Zelda series protagonist Link against spawning hordes of familiar foes. The game is a collaborative effort between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei. Nintendo has said Hyrule Warriors is a placeholder name for the title. The "celebration of both the Zelda and Dynasty Warriorsfranchises" will reportedly arrive in Japan this August.
