Following Fi’s gameplay trailer earlier this week, today’s Hyrule Warriors gameplay update shows Zelda in action using the Wind Waker weapon.

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

    If you listen closely, some of the attacks are set to iconic Zelda tunes like Saria’s Song or the Song of Storms. Looks like she trades her speed and maneuverability for better crowd control.

      With all that wind, why doesn’t her dress fly up?

  • Koatl

    Literally all the footage I’ve seen of this game is enemies just standing around getting hit. I’m not trying to talk shit. I really hope this game will be good, and I’m sure I’ll be buying it if it’s even remotely fun, but the gameplay seems like very mindless hack ‘n slash so far.

    • bloodiOS

      Yup, that sounds exactly like every KT Musou ever…

      • Koatl

        Damn, didn’t know that. No wonder I never had interest in those games.

      • Budgiecat

        thats why the best Omega Force game was Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll…

        • Elvick

          Toukiden. IMO

          • Budgiecat

            I think Zill O’ll is more revolutionary due to the fact you can control 3 characters on battle.

            toukiden is just a good MH clone is all. And MH is really just a PSO clone…

      You can just max-out the difficulty. Sometimes they can get pretty annoying. You’re really fighting the Guard Captains and Generals. If the hordes of regular troops were programmed to attack you simultaneously/continuously, then you’re good as dead..or at least keep flinching non-stop especially if a general joins in, unless you spam Musou attacks. They were made that way. There’s also a kill counter at the bottom so in some cases you really need to defeat hordes of enemies for achievements and stuff.

    I love how all the marketing for this game is Japanese only and NoA is not even trying…

    • MrKappa

      Well it is a musou game and it seems KT is handling the promotion and not Nintendo so it makes sense why they are focusing on the Japanese market and even why it comes out first in Japan.

      There ARE English versions of these videos on Nintendo’s English Youtube channel(obviously too early for this one to be there, though):


  • Manny Being Manny

    Damn, Zelda is stacked in this game. Team Ninjas influence is showing

  • PrinceHeir

    Looking good!!

  • Comandante Bushido

    Bewbs… sold

  • Elvick


    Have they shown Sheik at all? I’d prefer if Zelda was just a bad ass magic user. Din’s Fire bitch. BURRRRN

  • HighBrowDrifter

    I really don’t want to dish out any zennies for a Wii U (<- this always feels like an insult), but Hyrule Warriors and various other titles make it hard to resist…

    Nice Loftwing remix.

    (oh get off it, I LIKED Skyward Sword despite the shitty flaws)

  • MasterSensei

    I wonder if they explained this in the Hyrule Historia.
    I don’t remember Zelda being able to use the Wind Waker

  • MasterSensei

    No Tetra outfit?

  • Zancrow

    This game is going to sell billions, man. So much fanservice. (Not that kind of fanservice!)
