In the newest issue of GameInformer, they have a preview of Hyrule Warriors, including some choice quotes from Hayashi on the game. While most of what he says isn't really news, they do ask him about how fan feedback has affected the game, and I think that warrants reposting here:

Yosuke Hayashi said...
For one, we now have Cuccos in the game. They will appear in battle, and you'll have to see for yourself what will happen. In addition, we've made characters like Ghirahim and Zant playable. We originally thought of them strictly as enemy characters, but went this route in response to people who wanted to try playing as them, too.


Note that he says "characters like Ghirahim and Zant," instead of just specifying those two. While I wouldn't say it's anything definite, it does give further credence to Cia and her posse being playable.
I'm sure I'll think of a witty signature someday.

That's interesting. It could either confirm Cia, or more enemies from the eras.

The word, "like," as it is used here is interchangeable with, "such as," or, "for example."
The world was built by sociopaths, men willing to send a million innocent boys into battle to be chopped to screaming giblets, all so a banner can be raised...

Well, there goes what little faith I had in the "Ganondorf leads a third side instead of being the evil that corrupted Cia" theory.

Hopefully they listened to everyone crying for Groose as well.

Why would you even admit they weren't playable in the first place?

They easily managed to make them playable. Saying "nah, we weren't gonna do that at first" just makes you look bad. Don't get me wrong, I'd have been fine if they weren't, but I don't think this is a good way of trying to say you listen to fans.

I hope im wrong but to me that further solidifies that Cia, Valga, and Wizzro are NOT playable. Ghirahim and Zant are on the player side on the official japanese website, ane the other three are enemies.

Like I said im REALLY hoping im wrong, but I dunno the way he said it kinda makes me think.

Ghirahim and Zant were also on the villain side before.

Cia, Valga, and Wizro could all be switched as well.

Nintendo of America still hasn't deleted the Tweet chain that listed Cia as a playable character. And they said "Characters like Zant and the other guy" instead of just saying Zant and Girahim. I'm not worried yet.

This exactly. Sorry, I think they're all playable. If they were able to easily make Ghirahim/Zant playable, they were able to make Cia, Wizzro, and Valga playable pretty easily as well, and Nintendo of America never deleted the tweet saying that Cia was playable. So yeah.
