During the Nintendo Digital Event at E3, a new trailer was revealed for upcoming Wii U spin-off Hyrule Warriors. It is set to release in North America on September 26, 2014, at retail and on the eShop.

The trailer reveals Princess Zelda and Midna as playable characters, and of course includes more gameplay of Link and Impa in action. Various scenes also show Link encountering what looks like the Great Fairy from Ocarina of Time, wielding various blades, throwing a huge bomb at a crowd of enemies, and summoning an impressive special move.

Ganondorf is also revealed, though only his face is shown while the sound of his maniacal laughter plays. The trailer ends with Princess Zelda opening a chest, revealing a Hookshot.

Another developer commentary video shows even more gameplay, with discussion of the game from producers Hisashi Koinuma and Yosuke Hayasahi and supervisor Eiji Aonuma.

    You accidentally called Impa Sheik.

      Ah, so I did — fixed. It was kind of an excited rush for staff when this was announced! (So much so that I apparently mixed up two major character names). 😀

    Love that we finally have official confirmation that its not just the core cast (Link, Zelda, Impa, Ganondorf) and a bunch of new characters. Midna and Zelda both look badass. I think I might main Zelda (unless Saria is later announced, and I’d be very surprised at this point if the original Seven Sages aren’t playable :P).

    That’s Impa, ya silly!

    Zelda looks beautiful

    I looks amazing. I think it interesting that Midna is in her cursed form and not true form, but that is how the fans know her I guess. I expect the game to be non-canon which makes that perfectly acceptable.

    Impa; the Auron (FFX) of the Zelda games.
