First look at Hyrule Warriors' "White Witch" in action.

Hyrule Warriors

Today’s new Hyrule Warriors video shows the first footage of new character Lana, introduced last week as a “White Witch” out to stop Cia’s evil intentions.

You’ll see Lana put her book of magic to use with several transparent block, lightning, and page-based attacks.

Watch the footage below. Hyrule Warriors is due out for Wii U on September 26 in North America and September 19 in Europe.

    Looks far more creative than I thought she would end up being.

    • gulabjamal

      Yes. This!

  • rainelee

    I’m totally getting this now.

  • MrKappa

    This girl in no way looks like a Zelda character. She has the most “anime” looking face I’ve ever seen.

    I like her fighting style though, the magical walls pushing enemies away is cool and the lightning strikes look as useful as they always are in musou games.

    • Bob Slim

      Well it is a Japanese game I like her

    • Shippoyasha

      She looks like one of the fairy girl characters in the Zelda lore so far. Din from Oracle of Seasons arguably looks more anime esque.

      She looks like she would’ve been designed in one of the Gameboy games, but translation of her very pixelated design resulted in the character you see today. Considering the diversity of the LoZ universe cast, I’d say she fits pretty all right, if maybe not just a tad more quirky.

  • FlameEmperor

    Yea, this is a must have now.

  • Karysonson


  • Six

    Well, that little pose at the end just guaranteed hundreds of fanart pictures.

  • KingNigma

    Were some of those battle cries actual words or?

    • Gojira Twit

      Yeah, nothing special but definitely Japanese words

    • DarthBrian

      The only one I think I understood was ‘sore’ which just means ‘that thing’ I think?

      I don’t really know Japanese though, just picked up some stuff from playing or watching things in Japanese with subtitles. So I could be wrong obviously. *shrug*

      • Gojira Twit

        “Sore” means “that” as in “take that” and “sei, no” is a verbal anticipation of something (think “ready, set”). So technically kind of meaningless but still very Japanese.

  • 罪罰

    she’s kawaii

  • An Tran

    She’s really enjoying all the killing and carnage O_O

  • Max Eisenhardt

    Hyrule Waifus

  • Hentailover

    wow, does her moveset looks fun.

  • zakou

    HASTUNE MIKU! Surprised how nobody mentioned her yet XD

  • MDH

    Does anyone else think Lana could have worked as an HD version of Crazy Tracy from Link’s Awakening?

    • http://www.gameanyone.com/DukeVerde DukeVerde

      Does she even wear pants?

  • Iron Angel

    Anybody else really wanting to try her in Smash now? lol

  • Ben Kennedy

    Hatsume Miku joins the brawl!

  • kurosan9712

    She will be my waifu. You all go wait for western release, while I’ll play her earlier, HAHAHAHA!

  • TrueDefault

    Her move sets looks very unique so far! Wall jump and such, I wonder how much control we have over them.

  • Bob Obb

    This character design was definitely influenced by Tecmo. Just gross

    • Zancrow


    • Kobracon

      Bit harsh. Doesn’t seem that much worse than the giant fairy in that demo stage…

  • BlueCereal

    I look forward to the hentai doujins.

    • kurosan9712

      Hope one emerges BEFORE August 14(the game’s release date). She’s just too sexy and cute.

  • Comandante Bushido

    Fap material

  • DarthBrian

    Wow. total waifu material right there. O_O

  • Paul Rodriguez

    She is awesome. So many great characters in Hyrule Warriors. I hope we get to see her in more games.

    • LordKaiser

      Same pose that Ranka Lee did in Macross Frontier. :3

  • Brii-Nanas

    For a brief, happy moment when I first saw the boxart, I thought this character was going to be Hyrule Warrior’s version of Nayru, and that would mean Din would show up as well.

    Ah well, she’s cute, but I do get the feeling I’m going to find her personality grating. Still waiting on the SURELY inevitable Groose announcement (A girl can dream right?) and dreading the even more likely reveal of Tingle.

  • shogunknight

    The hells this?

  • Kobracon

    Those moves look pretty cool and creative. Also she is the most Tecmo-Koei designed character so far!

  • Willgaea

    Shes actually saying words. o,o
