Skyward Sword’s Fi shows off her moves in Hyrule Warriors

Read our full Hyrule Warriors review.

Fi, the sword spirit who guides Link through Skyward Sword, gets some love in the form of a new Hyrule Warriors gameplay trailer on developer Koei Tecmo’s official YouTube channel. She moves gracefully through swarms of enemies, pirouetting as rings of energy lash out at the enemy hordes. She even has the ability to turn into the Goddess Sword to clear a large group of baddies.

For those who are unfamiliar with Fi, she is a spirit who resides in the Goddess Sword, a blade created by the goddess Hylia to assist the chosen hero (Link) in his quest to defeat Demise, the demon king and main antagonist of Skyward Sword. In the tradition of partner characters appearing in Zelda games (since Ocarina of Time), she provides Link with hints throughout the game, but also proves to be an integral part of the plot. Fi joins the cast of already announced Hyrule warriors Link, Zelda, Impa, Midna, Agitha, and Lana.

The trailer also details some of the juicy pre-orders available, including the “premium box” which features a triforce alarm clock, and the “courage” and “knowledge” DLC costumes. Better than that is the “treasure box” set which features the premium tier goods and adds the “power” DLC costume, a “hero scarf” and a treasure chest that plays the legendary ‘found an item’ fanfare. Unfortunately, these bonuses are only available in Japan. If this kind of content was included in North American preorders, the world would be a much better place.

Excitement for Hyrule Warriors is building as the game approaches its release date. The game will be available for Wii U in North America on Septemeber 26.
