The lights are on
Hyrule Warriors is breaking canon in the most glorious of ways. The latest trailer shows off Princess Zelda wielding Toon Link’s most powerful tool: the Wind Waker.
From the game of the same name, this enchanted baton allows its wielder to control gusts of wind. As you can see, that can be used to great effect with tornados and powerful gusts.
My only concern is that enemies seem to be casually standing around right next to Zelda without attacking. Average enemies in Musou games aren’t too much of a threat, but they should probably at least make the effort.
Hopefully, this was just to showcase Zelda’s Wind Waker-powered move set. We’ll know for sure as we get closer to the September 26 launch on Wii U. For closer looks at the rest of the announced cast, check out our roundup.

Tons of Interest. Cant wait for this game.
Watching until the end it is clear there will be a lot of meat included in this game.
Actually, on easy the grunt enemies don't do much at all in most DW games.
That was one epic rendition of the Skyloft theme in the background.
It'll be both hilarious and awesome if Malo is a playable character. He is such a sarcastic little fella.
***Daily reminder of how this game was developed only in 1 ½ years***
Zelda is really cute when she smiles.
to those people who worries that the enemies are just standing around if you watch the video again and focus your attention to those enemies standing beside zelda you can clearly see that they are indeed attacking her but for the purpose of demonstration the developers apparently turned of maybe the script for zelda taking damage or maybe her models character collider or maybe the enemies collider but it is definitely turned of, so they can't really hit her or damage her so basically the animation for getting hit is turned of, now as you can surely realize this is a recording of a demonstration of the wind waker weapon, so it would be pretty embarassing to show a demonstration video showcasing moves of something and be interrupted when you are hit by the enemy is it not? so you do the math.
