New "Hyrule Warriors" Features Trailer

Check out this new "Hyrule Warriors" trailer featuring a number of characters, stages, bosses and special modes. You can even play co-op without having to use split screen. To do this, one player plays on the GamePad while another plays on the TV screen. This is a feature that more games should support. This game is shaping up to be one epic adventure. Do you plan on getting "Hyrule Warriors" when it comes out for the Wii U? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to know what you think about it!

"Bayonetta 2" Online Co-op Mode Called Tag Climax

It was announced awhile ago that "Bayonetta 2" on the Wii U would have some kind of online co-op mode. Finally, we have some more information about this mode. According to Platinum Games, this mode is going to be called "Tag Climax."

When playing Tag Climax, you have a few different options. First, you can choose to link up with a friend online or a stranger. You can also choose to play with a CPU partner. After choosing your partner, you will take on different challenges. This includes everything from fighting huge bosses to taking down waves of enemies. You will also be able to pick the stages that you want to play on.

In Tag Climax mode, you get to not only pick what character you want to be, but their weapons and accessories they use. You will unlock new players, weapons and accessories the further you progress in the actual story mode. Thus, people who have played more of the story will likely perform better in Tag Climax.

When playing online quick matches, players will also be able to bet Halos, which is in-game money. You bet Halos to challenge other players who can get the best score. By doing this, you can earn extra money to buy new things like alternate weapon variations and new accessories and techniques.

Look for "Bayonetta 2" to hit the Wii U this October.
