Japanese website NicoNico has announced that they will be streaming Hyrule Warriors again this Thursday (Wednesday for those of you on the West Coast), and this time they'll be joined by a plethora of important guests.

Last week's stream gave us new information about the game, as well as a trailer and a look at the gameplay for then-newly announced characters Darunia, Ruto, and Sheik; could we perhaps get some additional new characters in this week's stream? It's possible, since Eiji Aonuma, Shigeru Miyamoto, and members of the Koei Tecmo staff will be appearing on the stream.

Head inside to check out the list of guests, as well as the show time (with multiple time zones!).

A few days ago Japanese site NicoNico held a special live stream event where they showed off a new Hyrule Warriors trailer and a gameplay demo. We've reported on lots of new details that were uncovered during the stream, but there's always much more than what you catch at a first glance. The fantastic team over at GameXplain has gone back and sorted through all of the new footage with a watchful eye, analyzing ever frame for the most in-depth coverage possible. Hit the jump to check it out and get a closer look at Hyrule Warriors.

Capcom has been a highly important and successful third-party company for decades, but lately they've faced some tough times and financial struggles. As a result, the company has experienced downsizing and restructuring over the past two years, and investors recently voted to end their takeover defense policies. Previously Capcom had rules in place to make sure that no outside company could buy up enough stock to take control, but the decision-makers at Capcom have decided to do away with these rules and open themselves up to the possibility of being bought out.

Of course there's no guarantee of a takeover, and not all of Capcom's investors want to sell, but the possibility is now there. A company interested in buying Capcom would have their work cut out for them, but doing so would grant them exclusive ownership of popular franchises like Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Monster Hunter, and more. Any developer could use those games in their lineup, but there's one company that would benefit substantially more than the others, and that's Nintendo. In fact, Capcom is just what Nintendo needs to take big steps forward in the next generation.

We've seen some footage of Darunia in action in Hyrule Warriors thanks to San Diego Comic-Con, but now Nintendo and Koei Tecmo have released an official trailer for the hard-hitting Goron. Darunia battles his way through hordes of foes like Stalchildren and a King Dodongo with his powerful hammer attacks and rolling moves as he climbs what appears to be Death Mountain. I think I may have a favorite character picked out for the game! Hit the jump to watch the trailer and catch all the new Hyrule Warriors action!

In today's Miiverse pic of the day, Sakurai announced that Takamaru will be an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U; he could also potentially be an assist trophy in the 3DS version of the game.

Sakurai comments that he debuted in the same year (1986) as Link, Samus, and Pit. From the screenshot, we can see that Takumaru uses what Sakurai calls a "Multidirectional Pinwheel Knife Rook Attack" to damage players.

San Diego Comic-Con 2014 is headed into the final stretch, and Nintendo was along for the ride, live streaming for two days as they did during E3 last month. The Nintendo Treehouse gang participated in a number of Nintendo-related challenges (including tough games like Zelda II: Adventure of Link), and gamers competed in both Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U. Even newly released indie game Shovel Knight makes an appearance as a challenge game.

During their Comic-Con stream yesterday, Nintendo announced that NES Remix Pack will be releasing in North America later this year.

The pack, which is a physical bundle release of NES Remix and NES Remix 2, comes out this holiday; the bundle will also include Super Luigi Bros., which was included in the original release of NES Remix 2.

Are any of you guys planning on buying the NES Remix Pack?

According to a tweet from the official Hyrule Warriors Twitter account, the game has officially completed development.

The game, which is being developed by Koei Tecmo, releases in Japan on August 14th, so it makes sense that its development is coming to a close. All that's left now is finalizing the game and getting it ready for distribution, in addition to localizing the game for its international releases.

What do you guys think? Are you excited for Hyrule Warriors?

Just in time for the insanity of Comic-Con, WB Games and Traveller's Tales have revealed a new trailer for the upcoming LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. After featuring Superman in the last entry in the series, LEGO Batman 2 teased its audience with the appearance of Justice League members in some ending cutscenes. Now, the whole team is together and ready to fight crime. You could say it's... building up to a... dawn of justice. I got a LEGO pun and a reference in that sentence. You're welcome.

Turn away from that leaked trailer of the upcoming DC Comics film and watch your heroes fight in plastic form. Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg are all after the jump.
