Just the other day, the official Hyrule Warriors Twitter in Japan tweeted about there being yet another character reveal for the game in the latest issue of Famitsu. Just some time ago, Famitsu confirmed this with a tiny snapshot of the magazine page showing Fi from Skyward Sword to be the new playable character. Check out the image below.

For those unaware, Fi is the helpful spirit that lives inside the Master Sword. She speaks very robotically and tends to make absolutely certain that you know what you’re doing to the point of making Navi look like a mute. We should be expecting a Fi gameplay trailer sometime this week or next.

The magazine spread also shows a new weapon for Link: the ball and chain that was first introduced as a weapon in Twilight Princess. There is also Link and Zelda in their Skyward Sword outfits. Could this mean more costume DLC?

How do you feel about Fi as a playable character? Do you think we’ll be able to glide over the battlefield as if we were ice-skating? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hyrule Warriors will be released in North America on September 26, 2014, and in Europe on September 19, 2014.

    I’m seriously meh about her even though I really like her, plus there is WAY TO MANY women already (and this coming from someone who plays with female characters 80% of the time).

    I’m hyped about the Skyward skins though, I would have like Zelda to have her white dress rather than her Skyloft uniform though

      I’m fine with the ladies, but I do want at least a couple guys (or Tingle) in the game. Very least give me playable Gannondorf.

    • +1. As of now, Link is almost the only male playable character. What about Ezlo? What about Tingle? What about Skull Kid? What about the postman? What about… Onilink ?

    • Justin Graham

      The developers have said that the roster is going to be 50% female. There are male playable characters. Most just haven’t been announced yet.

      I’m honestly starting to wonder if Nintendo is revealed all the women first just to troll Ubisoft.

    I think it would be hilarious if Cia magically muted Fi 😀 That said, not really sure how she is supposed to battle, but judging from how different every revealed character seems to play, should be interesting.

    Not really sure what to make of this new reveal–Fi was probably my least favorite companion character in the Zelda series so far. I assume a number of her moves are going to be based around dancing…because that’s all I really remember her doing.

    Honestly, with all the previously revealed characters to choose from already, she might just be a one-try character for me. The others just seem so much more interesting.

    • +1000. Lots of people say that Navi is the worst Link Companion. The other people played Skyward Sword and know that it is not “Hey listen” Navi but “Captain Obvious” Fi.

  • Aiddon

    and Zelda has the Wind Waker as an alternate fighting style
