Brand new Zant character trailer for Hyrule Warriors

Wii U Hyrule Warriors Illu 02 E3

Team Ninja and Omega Force’s mix of The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors is almost here, and a new character trailer for Zant has been revealed.

Update: I originally thought Zant summoned a Deku plant (actually Manhandla) in the trailer, but I have updated that information within the text.

Hyrule Warriors is due for release in Japan in just a couple of days time, and Japanese publishers of the game, Koei Tecmo, have uploaded a new trailer showcasing one of the character’s in the game – Zant. The game is a mash-up of The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors.

Zant is one of the main villains in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and in the trailer below you’ll get to see some of his moves on the Hyrule Warriors battlefield. I won’t pretend to know exactly who he is or what his moves are called, but they do look pretty impressive. He can spin around, knocking enemies flying, and then he fights off 'Manhandla' - a recurring boss in the Zelda games, as pointed out to me by one of our readers in the comments; thank you. He also appears to like screaming, laughing, and generally acting insane – what a guy. Check out the trailer below, and if you’re a Zelda fan, feel free to educate me on what Zant’s moves are, and who he is exactly, in the comments section below.

Hyrule Warriors is due for release in Japan on 14th August, in Europe on 19th September, and in the US on 26th September for Wii U.
