Bring the thunder!

Zelda may be pretty handy with a blade in Hyrule Warriors, but as this latest video attests, she's just as keen to create carnage with the legendary Wind Waker wand.

In the trailer below you can watch the traditionally mild-mannered Hylian royal dish out plenty of wind-based punishment on hordes of enemies. Compared to Link's rather aggressive style, Zelda is surprisingly graceful.

Hyrule Warriors launches in Japan on August 14th, with the European release following on 19th September. The game hits North America a week later on the 27th.
