The lights are on
Hyrule Warriors information is starting to flow quickly. This weekend we shared with you an interview with Tecmo Koei and a trailer of Link in action. Now we’ve got a look at the hero wielding one of the franchise’s iconic weapons: the fire rod.
Link can use the large staff to fire off magical shots or as a flamethrower. The rod also has its own Musou attacks for doling out huge damage to multiple enemies in your path.
Hyrule Warriors will be out on September 26 on Wii U. You can read our hands-on impressions from E3 for more information.

Hahaha nice and wasn't it confirmed that Agitha from Twilight Princess is a playable character from Famitsu earlier today?
Link heats up the bedroom with the rod of fire!
Dat clock doe
The trailers for this game make it look really fun, but I don't know how long that fun will last.
How the hell is Link using one of his usual weapons fan service? I think old Mike Futter is just trying to stir up some s***.
Why would anyone want to use a lame ol' Master Sword when you could literally carry an inferno in your hands?
Tight work for sure!
WHOA wait a minute... that pre-order stuff looks a lot more interesting then the video!! Are we getting that!?
Comes out on my Birthday! Getting it on launch day for sure!
Looks pretty slick, can't wait for the new Zelda... It's killing me, does every time.
Im buying a Wii U almost exclusively for this game, however, in all the videos I've noticed a major flaw, non of the pawns attack, they approach, stand there, and wait to be attacked.... Im not sure if the pawn type enemy is supposed to substitute for the traditional zelda grass/bushes, but I enjoy fighting enemies which can provide a beating for carelessness... -dax
