Koei Tecmo has announced Hyrule Warriors will be released on Nintendo 3DS.

A short trailer for the game reveals that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker character Tetra will be added.Tetra will be wielding a cutlass and pistol.

The trailer, which you can watch below, also shows The King of Hyrule and The King of Red Lions will also be available for players to use. Both new characters can also be transferred to the Wii U version of the game.

Hyrule Warriors was previously released for Wii U and is a spin-off that blends Legend of Zelda with the gameplay of Koei Tecmo's Dynasty Warriors.

In January, it was reported that the Hyrule Warriors has shipped more than one million units worldwide since its launch last fall.

In our Hyrule Warriors review we gave the game an 8/10 score. Reviewer Miguel Concepcion praised the game's balancing of Dynasty Warriors map management with Zelda-style objectives and said it delivered true Zelda fan service from beginning to end.
