A short while ago, Nintendo announced that Medli from the Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker would be added as a new playable character in Hyrule Warriors Legends via DLC. However, while she was announced as a character a while back, we never saw much of her in game. A screenshot there, an artwork picture there… it was a small taste, but didn’t really suggest much gameplay wise.
But that’s now changed! Nintendo have released footage of her in Hyrule Warriors Legends at WonderCon 2016, as can be seen in this video:
So what’s interesting? Well, as somewhat fits a Rito character, she seems to use wind and air powers to take down enemies. Indeed, one even has her become some sort of tornado that tears through the forces of evil like a knife through butter! She also seems to use her harp as a weapon, though it doesn’t shine light like in the Wind Waker.
Either way, Medli looks to be a pretty cool character in Hyrule Warriors Legends. I just wish she was anything like this useful at fighting back in the Wind Waker itself…
