The Legend of Zelda: The Faceless Hero is a title in the Legend of Zelda series developed by Pixelburst Gaming and released by Nintendo for the Wii U. This game, which is set hundreds of years after Twilight Princess, combines the moody color scheme of Twilight Princess with the simple shades and almost Chibi style of Wind Waker to create a unique style that allows players to see Hyrule in a completely new way. Despite the style being similar to that of Wind Waker, character and monster appearance is completely unique. ReDeads, for example, are the classic withered and masked horrors from Ocarina of Time rather than the teal creatures from Wind Waker or the sword-wielding mummies from Twilight Princess. This game brings back several mechanics from previous Zelda titles, most notably the transformation from Majora's Mask. Players use a new signature item called the Dusk's Emblem to assume different forms, with each of them possessing unique abilities and items. While on the subject, item equipment will be similar to that of Minish Cap and other Zelda titles for the Gameboy and Gameboy Advance, in the sense that you can equip items to any of the buttons, including swords and shields. More information will be released as the game is developed.

Story

The game begins during the events of Ganon's War, several hundred years before the main plot of the game. The hero, Link, is an eager young boy who left his sleepy life as an apprentice to the blacksmith of Kakariko Village to join the fight against Ganon, the reincarnation of the Ganondorf that was defeated in Twilight Princess. On his first day in the training camp, he meets cheerful and supportive Saria and cranky and prideful Fado, two other recruits who came from the Kokiri Village. The three quickly become best friends. Several weeks later, Link, Saria, and Fado finally head to the front lines of the war. There, they quite easily dispatch the monsters and aid in progress towards Ganon's Fort. Soon, the three encounter and end up facing up against Ganon himself during the final battle of the war. Link fights valiantly, dealing many severe wounds to Ganon, but is soon slain. Saria and Fado manage to hold Ganon back long enough for the rest of the army to catch up. Ganon is captured and imprisoned, and Hyrule is safe for many centuries... Link, like the other fallen soldiers, was buried in the Heroes' Crypt, and was given a place of honor for his battle against Ganon.

Many years passed. One day, however, a dark force stirs within the Crypt. The soldiers begin rising from their tombs as ReDeads. Eventually, so does Link. Link, unlike his kin, seems unfazed by the dark magic, and immediately notices his altered form. He gets used to it rather quickly, however, and decides to return his fellow soldiers to their senses by locating the source of the dark magic. He borrows a heavily rusted sword from another soldier and sets out into the Crypt!

Link soon arrives at the lowest floor of the Crypt, aided along the way by a Lantern that he found. There, he encounters the ferocious Stallord - a demonic skeletal monster that worked the dark magic to reawaken the dead soldiers. Using his sword techniques and several Magic Torches located around the arena, Link defeats the Stallord. Link is about to leave and check on his fellow soldiers when a strange spirit girl dressed in rags appears before him. The girl quickly introduces herself as Dusk, and tells Link to go just a little bit further into the Crypt and retrieve something. Link decides to do so, and locates a mysterious treasure crafted from the spirits of those who left the realm of the living with cleared doubts - Dusk's Emblem! Dusk reappears, explaining that Hyrule is in danger and that the kingdom's only hope lies with Link and the Emblem. With all said and done, Dusk decides to accompany Link, and returns to the Emblem.

Link, upon his return to the top floor of the Crypt, is met with rounds of applause from the ReDead soldiers. They thank him for all of his selfless fighting with several Rupees, and even a Bottle! Then, upon hearing that he's going to save Hyrule, they use their combined strength to push the heavy stone door of the vault open. Link, determined to save Hyrule, sets foot outside!

It's nighttime, but nearly dawn, as Link steps out of the Heroes' Crypt and into Kakariko Graveyard. It's a cloudless night, and the stars can be seen. Link simply stands there, regarding the area's beauty, before Dusk appears, having something she has to explain to Link. According to her, Dusk's Emblem could heal peoples' sorrows, allowing them to pass on. In times of dire need, these people, instead of passing on, could sometimes form circular red stones called Moon Pearls. These Moon Pearls are then fused with Dusk's Emblem, allowing the holder of the emblem to take the approximate shape of that person. As Link was a ReDead when he first obtained the Emblem, he is able to transform into a ReDead by default. Dusk concludes her explanation by saying that there is somebody Link ought to meet, but he will only be able to meet her as a human, and that his old home of Kakariko Village is just beyond the graveyard.

Link stumbles into Kakariko and immediately overhears two townsfolk discussing the disappearance of a young man named Sen, who is apparently a great-great-great-nephew of "the legendary hero who died facing Ganon", Link himself. They note that the boy was last seen looking for treasure under graves, then spot Link and quickly flee. Link returns to the graveyard and, after some searching, finds Sen, who, as luck would have it, is being attacked by Chu Chus. Link fends the Chu Chus off, and Sen, though first frightened, soon realizes that the ghost of his ancestor is looking out for him. He offers his gratitude, expresses his regret about never doing any good besides playing around, then suddenly passes out from his mortal wounds. Link, seeing no way of saving Sen's life, uses Dusk's Emblem. Sen's doubts are cleared, and he departs, leaving behind a Moon Pearl. Link slots the Moon Pearl into the Emblem, quickly enters his new Hylian form, and returns to Kakariko Village with hopes of finding a sword and a shield.

Link soon locates a few guards who, with a little persuasion, decide to challenge Link to a sword duel. If he wins, he is able to keep the sword and shield. If he loses, he is forced to pay the absolutely unimaginable fee of... 2 Rupees? In any case, Link blows the soldiers away with his natural skill and, fair and square, obtains the Hero's Sword and the Wooden Shield! With that in his hands, Link is allowed into Hyrule Field by Dusk as the sun rises.

Dusk guides Link to their destination - Castle Town - and advises him to gather whatever he needs before visiting Hyrule Castle. Link is able to purchase, from various markets, the following items:

  • One Bottle.
  • A spare Wooden Shield.
  • A Hylian Shield.
  • Hylia's Armor. (Is possible, but very difficult.)

Once ready, Link departs for Hyrule Castle. As he arrives at the entrance, Dusk tells Link to request an audience with none other than Princess Zelda herself. The soldiers reluctantly let Link do so. While waiting for Zelda, Dusk explains that dark forces are gathering and that in order to prevent a rule of darkness, Link needs to find a legendary weapon capable of felling the greatest threat in Hyrule. Before Dusk can elaborate, however, Zelda enters, cutting their conversation short. Dusk instructs Link to ask of the four Shrines scattered about Hyrule. Link does so, and Zelda quite happily marks down the locations of the Spinvine Shrine, the Skypeak Shrine, the Scarblaze Shrine, and the Sandstone Shrine on Link's map. When she asks what for, Link simply shows Zelda the Emblem, per Dusk's instructions. Zelda immediately understands, and grants him access to the Castle Forge to aid him in his quest. With that, Link exits Castle Town.

Link immediately goes to check on the Shrines, but discovers that all cannot be entered due to strange locks or other odd puzzles. Dusk suggests that they need some new equipment to break the locks, and deems that the Forge would be the best place to create such an item... or maybe items. Along the way, Link discovers a strange blueprint made of stone outside of the Spinvine Shrine, which is made impassable by a pit. He takes the blueprint with him to the Blacksmith, where he learns that this specific blueprint is for an ancient weapon called the Chopperblade, specifically designed for low-level combat and aerial movement. However, he first needs the necessary materials - two chunks of Goron Ore and a Wind Essence. Fortunately, they are both available in the Castle Town market.

Chopperblade in hand, Link is able to cross the pit outside the Spinvine Shrine and enter the Shrine itself. Inside, he faces strange plantlife and nocturnal creatures that hadn't seen light since Ganon's War. He soon rediscovers an old foe - the Great Moblin, a larger-than-average Moblin that wields Link's old bow. Link manages to defeat the Great Moblin and reclaim his old Bow, which, by good fortune, is the ranged weapon that he needs to proceed through the dungeon.
