Midna Gets Slap Happy In Hyrule Warriors

By Spencer . July 7, 2014 . 12:01am

Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is playable for the first time in Hyrule Warriors. She can summon wolves, ride a wolf, and also toss a wolf as a projectile.


Compared to the other characters we’ve seen so far Midna’s hair hand attacks appear to give her more range than Link or Impa. Midna can also use her Fused Shadow form for an attack and at the end you can see her bring down an enemy with the hookshot.


Hyrule Warriors comes out in Japan on August 14 for Wii U.

    Is it September 26th yet?

  • Shippoyasha

    Welp. No need for Bayonetta cameos now. So many hair combos. I think I found one of my mains.

  • Shady Shariest

    Damn. She is cool.

  • Kayriss Wins

    Sorry Link, but with all these awesome female characters you’ll probably get neglected from me lol.

    • Land of Green Pasture

      our hero seems like a speed type character, DW trend nowadays, they classified the characters in some archetypes, while power type excels in clearing waves, speed type excels on 1vs1, but yeah could be not, the other roster have extraordinary moveset effect, that alone should be enough reason not (just) to use Link

      • Kayriss Wins

        I imagined Link as more of an all around character to be honest but I was basing my character choice mostly on character fan-boyism as oppose to strategy lol, but I’ll likely use everybody just like the Senran series I pretty much like using every character but Yagyu is my absolute favorite. I generally always gravitate towards female characters more with any game.

        • Linhua

          … we MUST be twins or something .-.

  • Namuro

    Damn, imagine if you can play as Midna like this in Twilight Princess.

    So looking forward to playing this game!!

  • ivanchu77

    I´m just glad to see Midna in another game again, she was too good of a character to just be in one game.

    By far one of the coolest trailers, but it looks like they changed her voice :(

  • Vash bane

    that giggle

    I don’t remember much about TP so I don’t really see the appeal of why so many like her…might have to reply it to find out…now if only I can remember where I put my mbs lol
    (even tho I don’t remember much I do kinda remember she was no push over always talking smack to others…but kinda wished she wasn’t in sealed form tho >.< (weird that , that is one of the main things I remember about her..) but meh I have the slightest clue of what time line is going on here or if this some crossover world where different timeline all converge …that Zelda tho)

  • Kaijumaster

    I hope we get some human form Midna in this game….

    • Brimfyre

      Me too, but I doubt it as they is kind of a spoiler for TP.

      I can see Nintendo not wanting that revealed no matter how old the game is.

      • Kaijumaster

        Well than they shouldn’t have princess tetra on the spirits tracks cover 8p (and yes I know the flaw I n my analogy)

  • Brian Carty

    Nice, looks like fun. I’m sorta hoping her real form is either unlockable (or DLC).

    I wonder if it has the usual amount of voice acting for a Zelda game nowadays. Just laughs, grunts, expressions of surprise?

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      Yes…It is.

  • fairysun

    Nico Robin and Midna = best “b*tch-slap” team!!

  • Paul Rodriguez

    The dev team is doing a fantastic job the the game. This is a day 1 buy for me.

  • Prinnydoom

    Well…wasn’t she technically playable before? I say “technically” using the loosest possible definition of the word.

    Still looks amazing. I am definitely getting a Wii U now.

    • Justin Graham

      As playable as Navi and Fi were, really. :P

  • wowoduend

    What about her adult form? Will she atleast get that one?

    • Göran Isacson

      From what I’ve read, she is cursed by Cia to have her imp-form in this game so… possible at the end? Or maybe you get to unlock her true form if you beat the campaign?

  • i don’t get the hype for this game…it’s literally dynasty warriors with a zelda skin…

    • Kalis Konig

      That’s the hype right there. People like Dynasty Warriors and people like Zelda. Some like both.

    • Nix da

      Thats why its called Hyrule Warriors….

  • They shouldn’t have shown Lana’s moveset first. No one else looks that cool by comparison, even Midna here. Btw, wonder who she’s riding this time if it’s not Link?

  • Learii

    she look OP

    • Kalis Konig

      It’s a Warriors game. Nearly every character is supposed to look overpowered lol.

      • Learii

        not everyone actually

      • Yan Zhao

        Tell that to Perona in One Piece Warriors 2, or most of the Technique characters in Warriors Orochi 2.

  • Göran Isacson

    And all I’m thinking is “where were these combos when I was fighting those Twili inhabitants and NEEDED them, hmmm?” Blatant bias of Midna in favor of her own people, I say.

    Jests aside, this is looking pretty damn awesome. Wonder if Midna is going to be one of those low HP but high attack strength glass cannon characters, or if she’s gonna be a bit more like the kind of characters who have wide attack range, but not really THAT high attack strength.

  • Kornelious

    Sexiest…Form….EVER! XD

  • I love Midna so much it hurts and this just made it even better this game is gonna be a day one buy just so I can play as Midna

  • doubleO7

    We now have a trailer for every announced character don’t we? Hopefully they’ll be announcing some new ones soon.
