Darunia and Princess Ruto will be making an appearance
Well this is a surprise! According to Koei Tecmo we were supposed to get one character reveal today for Hyrule Warriors, and instead, we got three.
As people expected since the start, Sheik will be making an appearance in a playable form, and is shown off in a new Famitsu scan. Siliconera is also reporting that Darunia and Princess Ruto will be playable as well, based on that same scan.
If the latter two are indeed playable, that brings up the total cast count to eight females and two males.
