By the standards of the internet, Zant was confirmed as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors an age ago, yet Koei Tecmo and Nintendo have been rather busy with live streams in Japan and the recent Hyrule Warriors Direct, with the reveal of Ganondorf also stealing some thunder.

Poor old Zant has finally been given his own trailer, however, showing off the playable villain's moveset of slashing attacks and various magic summonings, in which entities from the Twilight appear to crush hundreds of foes. It's a pleasing visual spectacle, though there seems to be some serious cool-off time after some attacks, leaving the character vulnerable.

The footable below also shows a battle with Manhandla, so check it out and let us know what you think.
