What Hyrule Warriors needs to succeed

When I heard that Nintendo and Tecmo Koei were developing a Dynasty Warriors like game set in the Zelda universe I immediately watched the preview trailer shown in the latest Nintendo direct and got very eager to play this game, having loved the Warriors series on playstation 2.

The main fear I have is all the trailer showed was Link as the playable character. I seriously hope that other characters are playable and its not just various Links from the previous Zelda games, that would be the worst case of clone characters in recent memory, I think it would be great if the storyline was  split into three pathlines each followed a piece of the triforce, so for courage you play as Link, wisdom as Zelda and power as Ganon. Some miscellaneous characters would great to play as like Ghirahim, Zant or Impa

There also needs be a good variety of battlefields to traverse. This was one of the main issues in the Warriors series, the maps became really stale very quickly because there was little variation between battles, this is mostly because the Warriors games are based on history but now this is a fantasy setting I hope they push more exciting level designs, one set in skyloft where you can fly and battle loftwings across the islands or a naval battle set in the great ocean from Wind Waker perhaps?

I truly hope that this game as well as the other 2014 releases helps to revive the Wii U from its zombie-like state.

What would you  include in this game to make it a great success?
