Hyrule Warriors trailer shows off Link's fire rod

The latest Japanese trailer for Hyrule Warriors, the Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors mash-up from Tecmo Koei Games, shows off one of the many weapons Link and friends can bring into battle: the fire rod.

Hyrule Warriors is a spin-off of the series in which Link battles a fearsome sorceress named Cia in order to save Princess Zelda. With the fire rod, players can send out bursts of energy, columns of dragon-shaped fire or special ground-pounding moves. You can watch the trailer above for a look at the weapon.

Hyrule Warriors launches Sept. 26 in North America for Wii U. In addition to Link, players will be able to take control of Zelda, Impa and Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The game will also feature levels that bear a "close resemblance" to those from the Dynasty Warriors franchise, despite their Hyrulian setting.
