In addition, producer roles have been revealed for Team Ninja. Take a look below:

In terms of the teams working on the project, Warriors franchise veterans Omega Force are primary developers, though Hisashi Koinuma and Yosuke Hayasahi of Team Ninja are named as producers on the project, with Nintendo’s Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma in a supervisory role. The storyline reportedly involves Zelda being kidnapped by a witch named Shea, and as would be expected of a spin-off for The Legend of Zelda and that working title, various landmarks of Hyrule will feature. It’ll be interesting to see whether Link serves as a ‘General’ of sorts for soldiers from Hyrule, as they’re pictured battling it out with familiar enemies from the franchise in the most recent screens.
