The Great King of Evil will join the line-up of Hyrule Warriors playable characters, Nintendo revealed during their special Direct broadcast detailing the upcoming Zelda spinoff.
Ganondorf will bring with him a Great Sword, and it looks to be very similar to Demise’s weapon from Skyward Sword. With it and another blade, the Demon King attacks with slow and deliberate blows that knock back enemies. He follows up with strong combos and can attack in all directions with his sword.
The Gerudo King can also summon dark magic. At one point, a sphere of energy is created and then crashes into Ganondorf’s enemies, and later he summons what appears to be Phantom Ganon, although in a more bestial form than seen before.
You can check out Ganondorf, with his long decorated hair and his galloping black horse, in the character trailer below, which was released immediately after the Direct concluded. Nintendo also shared a few images of Ganondorf in a press release, and we’ve posted them below.
