Hyrule Warriors Adds Fi To Its Character Roster


Continuing its onslaught of Hyrule Warriors character reveals, Koei Tecmo has released a brand new trailer starring Skyward Sword‘s Fi. That’s right; you’ll be able to play as the Goddess Sword’s spirit, as you mow down thousands of unlucky goons this September.

Fi is an interesting beast, because she’s not human. However, despite her lack of mortality, her human-like shape and familiar limb design will allow her to use sweeping punches and kicks to demolish hordes of foes. And, as is shown within her trailer, that traditional move set will mix its land and aerial attacks with the character’s other, more magical powers.

Speaking of magic, Fi’s more powerful attacks seem to mix enchantments with swordplay, as she’s shown using not only Triforce-resembling manifestations to hurt enemies, but also rainbow/flower powers and the Goddess Sword itself. This results in a lot of dead goons, and some spilled rupees, which can be picked up and perhaps even used to make purchases. Don’t quote me on that, though.

Hyrule Warriors will launch on September 26, as a Wii U exclusive.
