Hyrule Warriors | Box Art

A brand new gameplay trailer has been released by Tecmo Koei for Hyrule Warriors. It shows off Link in battle with his one-handed sword and shield technique.

In the footage we can see many of Link’s combo finishers, in which all enemies to be hit by said move turn a glowing golden color. We can see Link dodge rolling under a Lizalfos’s fire breath, throwing bombs into the mouth of a King Dodongo, and, yes, destroying a horde of bokoblins with his classic spin attack. During the King Dodongo part of the trailer, we see just how flashy the killing blows are in this game (for bosses anyway).

Also worthy of note, at the end of the trailer we can drool at the (currently) Japan-only exclusive limited edition preorder goodies: that scarf, a Triforce clock, and that super cool treasure chest that I’m sure all of us are dying to put… well, anything into.

But perhaps most surprising thing is, at the 1:00 mark in the trailer (as well as in the box art above) we catch a glimpse of another character in the bottom right of the image with silver/blue-ish hair and a floating book. Who is it? Is it Nayru? Irene? That one the Potion Shop Witch girl Maple? Link cross-dressing? Ganon’s personal secretary and bookkeeper? Someone completely new? Check out the trailer and comment below with your idea!

Hyrule Warriors is set for a September 26th release in North America, September 19th in Europe, and September 20th in Australia for the Wii U. It is currently retailing for $59.99 USD.

    Finally, I can comment again. I’d luv a collector’s edition of this game.

    I don’t see any moblins in this video only bokoblins.
