The next Legend of Zelda game has been revealed and it may not be what you expected.

"Hyrule Warriors," a mashup of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors and Nintendo's Legend of Zelda franchises, is scheduled to launch in 2014 and the name is not final, Nintendo said.

We'll have more from today's Nintendo Direct later this morning. Keep checking back for more.
