While we just got a glimpse of the incredible looking next mainline entry in The Legend of Zelda franchise during Nintendo’s Digital Event at E3, we do have one other Legend of Zelda game to look forward to this year, Hyrule Warriors. Teaming up with Tecmo Koei and Team Ninja, Hyrule Warriors looks to take many of the elements we know and love about the Dynasty Warriors series and combines them with The Legend of Zelda series.
We’ve had plenty of looks at Hyrule Warriors so far, with unveilings of new playable characters like Midna, Impa, and Princess Zelda, but today we got our first official “character trailer” courtesy of the Tecmo Koei Japanese YouTube channel.
This nearly minute and a half long trailer showcases Link specifically, with him squaring off against Lizalfos, Moblins, and more. Link shows off his regular attacks are well as some special moves, such as what appears to be an even more powerful spin attack than we are used to in the other games. Classic bosses even make an appearance, like the Dodongo that looks to be defeated by bombs as per usual.
Hyrule Warriors is set to release later this year exclusively for the Wii U on September 26 in the US. You can check out the new Link character trailer for yourself below:
