Hyrule Warriors Trailer: Fi Dances into Battle
The playable cast of Hyrule Warriors continues to grow with each passing week, with Fi getting her turn in the spotlight in the newest trailer.
Fi has a lot of dance-based attacks stemming from the dances she performed in Skyward Sword, as well as the ability to transform into the Goddess Sword for a powerful ground strike attack. She also has a really cool move where she traces a triangle into the ground, which glows then creates a tower of energy that takes out any uglies caught in the crossfire.
Also of note in this trailer is the Faron Woods area that Fi is fighting in. It looks like it’s been taken straight from Skyward Sword, which makes us wonder what other scenes will be ripped right from their respective games and placed into Hyrule Warriors. We’ll take the Gerudo Fortress from Ocarina of Time or the submerged Hyrule from Wind Waker, please.
The end of the trailer may be the coolest and most disappointing thing about the game we’ve seen yet: those collector’s editions are SWEET. Triforce wall clock, treasure chest, and scarf? Yes, please! Of course, they’re currently Japan only, so we’d have to import the collector’s editions and own a game we can’t play on our American Wii Us in order to get it. That, for lack of a better term, SUCKS. Hopefully Nintendo of America jumps on that and brings it over to America.
Hyrule Warriors will be released on Aug. 14 for the Wii U.
