Hyrule Warriors features Dynasty Warriors level and gameplay design with a number of characters from the Legend of Zelda series. One thing it won't have, however, is online multiplayer.

This week, the official Japanese Hyrule Warriors Twitter account confirmed that you will not be able to team up online to play the game. However, there is still a co-op mode in Hyrule Warriors. It's restricted to local play only, with one player using the Wii U GamePad and another using a Wii Remote or Wii U Pro controller.

Yesterday, Nintendo announced that there will be a Nintendo Direct livestream showing off the game on Monday and revealing a few new details, as well.

Hyrule Warriors is a collaboration between Dynasty Warriors developer Tecmo Koei and Nintendo, and it launches on September 26. You can read our hands-on preview of the game here.
