Impa and Gohma

Now that some Japanese press copies of Hyrule Warriors are in the wild, there's no shortage of footage popping up online for those that want to see the whole game before it arrives. For those seeking an element of surprise when it arrives in stores, however, there's the conventional hype machine of Koei Tecmo and Nintendo to tease us along with slick snippets.

After yet more official video in Japan today — ahead of a Nintendo Direct in the West next week — we have a new official trailer that shows Impa wielding a rather deadly Naginata, sweeping helpless minions aside before taking on Gohma, a villain revealed in the past week. As usual there are a variety of slick combos before more powerful attacks are unleashed.

You can check it out below — 7-8 more weeks to go, Western gamers.
