Impa Is A Death Cyclone In Hyrule Warriors

By Spencer . July 31, 2014 . 11:25pm

Like Link and Zelda, Impa has multiple weapons. This video shows her using a naginata, a pole with a blade on the end. Choosing the naginata gives Impa flashy spin combos and fire attacks. It looks like she can shoot a blast straightforward too which was useful when fighting a Tektite.


Hyrule Warriors comes out on August 14 in Japan, September 19 in Europe, and September 26 in North America.

    With each video the hype only builds higher! And Impa has been one of my faves since Skyward Sword

  • With the Giant Blade and this Naginata, I think Impa’s going to be one of my favourite characters to play as. Also, does anyone recognise which game this stage is from? The only one I can think of is the Forest Temple from Twilight Princess, but I’m not sure…

  • AsianDude2o9

    If hyrule warriors become successful maybe we can get other collaborations with Koei Tecmo maybe we can get a fire emblem musou

    • Sentinel

      That would be a Day 1 buy for me.

    • NeptuniasBeard

      And Chrom STILL won’t make it in

      • XypherCode

        Why are you all obsessed with Chrom?

        • anthony apduhan

          Tomakazu Sugita I guess…

          • Sentinel


  • Aleister Crowley

    And I think I just found my main.

  • Tarkovsky

    Nice, the Naginata is one of my favorite weapons of all time. It definitely fits Impa since it’s traditionally a female wielded weapon. Swift, graceful and deadly.

    • David García Abril

      I had the opportunity to practice with a naginata when I used to practice martial arts.

      It’s a beautiful weapon, and quite a view to behold when it’s on expert hands.

      • Tarkovsky

        Nice! I’ve only seen it in action and man is it beautiful.

  • LuluKoizumi

    I kinda wanted a Gerudo and not Ganon though someone like Nabooru? I wanted to see a Gerudo lady that would be nice.

    • HarakiriKami


      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        She’s not officially a gerudo.

    • Göran Isacson

      Hell yes, I am still sitting here holding my thumbs for a dual scimitar/Iron Knuckle-Ax wielding Nabooru.

      • LuluKoizumi

        XD HELL YA!

  • Final Agent

    That’s a Tektite? You sure that’s not just this game’s Gohma?

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      It is Gohma if you got to the official Japanese site his name reads Gohma.

  • Shadowman

    I can’t st stop watching this, this is just pure gold.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    I wonder if you can give any character any weapon like in DW8? Link using the wind waker? Probably not, no one could possibly use Midna’s fighting style of her hair-hand and wolf.

    • HarakiriKami

      no, they each have 5 weapons

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        No Link has 4, everybody else has been said to have 2.

  • John Smith

    Still waiting for Vaati

    • HarakiriKami

      He’s a villain. He probably wont be in since they’re focusing on the 3D games

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        Your sentence of the “3D” games makes no sense because then where’s Medli, Makar, Skull Kid or Malon?
        It’s literally just Ocarina of Time, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. A little sad but I’ll take it anyways.

        • Göran Isacson

          I think that should be the “mainline 3D games that have artstyles that lends themselves well for this type of game”, which would exclude Majoras Mask and Wind Waker, but that’s quite a mouthful to say so people just say “the 3d games”.

  • Namuro

    Yup! Impa is still my favourite character!!

  • I claim another victory in the name of my Princess!

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Damn now I want this to be one of her victory speeches.

  • dknighti

    Yoooooo gimme a Impa character action game made by Platinum, that would be so sick

  • Scourge626

    Impa’s getting her Zhao Yun on.

  • Yan Zhao

    Impa’s the badass character of this series. Meanwhile, still waiting for fierce deity Link to take the Lu Bu role.

  • Göran Isacson

    That looked so incredibly supersweet. I really don’t have anything smart to say here, that was just so cool I just have to sit here and make baby-noises until proper words come out. So yeah, hype gotten.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    *Cries self to sleep from all this waiting*

  • KanjiLikesBoys


  • mojack411

    The durability of eyeballs in the Zelda universe never ceases to amaze me. Because one sword slash isn’t enough to totally wreck them

  • k.b.a.

    glad this will be my first musou game

  • Vash bane

    :o dang is every character in this game is going to be awesome?
