Hyrule Warriors trailer showcases Impa swordplay

Nintendo has released a new trailer for Hyrule Warriors, the upcoming Legend of Zelda themed Dynasty Warriors spin-off for Wii U.

While the previous two trailers showed off Link and the Fire Rod, the latest trailer focuses on Impa, one of the many playable characters that will be available.

Impa wields a giant blade and can deliver powerful physical attacks, as well as summon arrows from the sky that leave the enemy's head encased in a water bubble.

Recently it was reported that the Legend of Zelda themed spin-off of Tecmo Koei's Dynasty Warriors series will use the Wii U GamePad for its two-player mode and star Impa as a playable character.

One player will see the action on the GamePad screen while the other will play normally on the television. Though multiplayer is rare for Zelda, previous Dynasty Warriors games have supported multiplayer modes with split-screen and online play.

The Hyrule Warriors release date has been confirmed as August 14.
