Tecmo Koei showcases a new weapon in Hyrule Warriors [VIDEO]

Today Tecmo Koei released a new trailer for Hyrule Warriors, showing off the Fire Rod, which is one of the weapons Link can wield in the game. Though the trailer is in Japanese, you can see some pretty heated action and special moves from the weapon, including moves designed to take out a lot of foes at once, and focused fireball attacks for precision strikes.

It looks like a solid addition to the game, and we’ll likely see more where that comes from as the game is scheduled to release on August 14 in Japan. North America and Europe will have to wait until September to get their hands on the game, but we should have some more beautiful footage from the Japanese version to tide you over until then.
