The Fire Rod: it can raze fields of grass, ignite foes from a distance, and make Link several times cooler. We can expect just as much from Link’s hottest weapon in Hyrule Warriors if this official trailer from Tecmo Koei is anything to go by.

In the trailer, we see Link firing concentrated blasts of flame, conjuring swirling vortexes of fire, spraying down foes with a wide burning attack, and launching a massive sphere of blazing energy at a horde of oncoming enemies. It also seems the Fire Rod can be used for direct attacks, as Link uses it to strike down enemies before hurling the weapon like a boomerang.

But don’t take my word for it — check out all the heated action in the trailer below:

In case you missed it, be sure to check out the character trailers released showing Link’s swordplay, Impa’s brute strength, and Princess Zelda’s leap into the fray.

    Thanks for putting this up! But you’ve made a small typo – in Hyrule Warriors, she’s confirmed to be a Queen now, so it should be Queen Zelda.

    • Shawn Taylor

      The E3 demo referred to her as Princess Zelda, so we are sticking with that title until NOA confirms that she has a new title. Thanks for the heads up though!
