This weeks issue of Famitsu Magazine has had a whole lot of details come to light on Hyrule Warriors and as well as characters there have been details on items such as the boomerang and even a skulltula collecting system, plus more. Translations are underway for all the details and here are all the details currently being translated for your enjoyment please enjoy all the details.
– You can obtain the boomerang from a treasure chest and use it as an item
– If the boomerang hits an enemy, it will make it stand still for a short amount of time
– You may also acquire strengthening item which transform the boomerang into the Gale Boomerang
– Gale Boomerang springs forth a tornado which will make enemies float
– If enemies are hit when they are midair they will take more damage than usual
– There are 100 Gold Skulltulas in the world
– One will appear as an enemy if certain special conditions are met
– If you slay one, you will get an illustration piece
– You can find information about Skulltulas in the stage select screen
– You will know that a Skulltula has appeared from a spider web like marker on the map which also pins down the location
– Then you have limited time to find and slay it
– If you are nearby, you will hear a rustling sound
– In the picture, one of the Skulltulas is under some large boulder so bombs are needed to uncover it
– Skulltula appearance is related to used weapon/character, at least in some cases
– You can pick weapon bags from slayed enemies
– Obtained weapons are random and you won’t know how good the weapon is until you clear the stage
– You can also find “sealed weapons” from treasure boxes
– These increase the amount of types of weapons that a character can use

More details on weapons/shopping
– Junk shop is part of the shopmall
– In junk shop you can compose stronger weapons by switching skills
– Ex: swap a skill from a powerful weapon into your favorite weapon
– There are limits on how many skills of a same skill group you can have in one weapon at once
– It seems that the weapon from which the skill is swapped from will turn into materials and so it is lost
