Famitsu confirms Fi as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors

Fi reveal

Yesterday we told you about a tweet that said a character reveal for Hyrule Warriors would be coming in this week’s issue of Famitsu. Today Famitsu has confirmed that tweet by posting a small teaser of the magazine page in which Fi, from Skyward Sword is revealed as the new playable character.

With Tecmo Koei releasing character trailers just every few days on YouTube, expect to see one for Fi shortly after this issue goes out to the Japanese public. Aside from Fi being revealed, the scan also shows a new item for Link, the ball and chain that first appeared in Twilight Princess. The game is scheduled to release in August in Japan, while North America and Europe will have to wait until September.

Is there anyone else you want to see made available as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors? How do you feel about Fi as a playable character?

    I would imagine her primary attacks will be to talk incessantly about obvious things while the enemies kill themselves out of boredom and frustration.

    • Thomas Fitzgibbon

      May indeed feature a character exclusive mini game where you have to mash the A button as quick as you can to skip through her dialogue faster before you throw the controller out the window in frustration yourself.

    • Nosferatu Zodd

      Win!

    • RockieOllie

      “There this a 98% chance that my enemies will die at my hand”

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Nah, man. She’ll be constantly saying “master, the battery in your Wii U gamepad is low.”

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Even Tingle would be a better character. Wonder why they didnt pick characters like the goron or the zora from Majoras Mask instead of weirdos like this…

      • Dark Link

        They should just have Young Link as a character and he can use the masks as his moves. I was hoping they would do this with Smash.

        • Dallas Gooch

          I can’t believe I never thought of that before haha, like it could be random on who he gets. and very rarely he might get Fierce Deity and just destroy everyone.

          • Dark Link

            That could work easily like with Peach’s turnips. Or they could just make his special moves one for each Mask. Up B would be the Deku out of the flower, down B would be the shield from the Zora, and over B would be the Gorons roll. Meanwhile neutral B would be a projectile move based on all 3 masks(Deku would shoot nut, Zora throws fins and Goron throws rocks or bombs). To finish, have Fierce Deity be the Final Smash. God that would be crucial….

      • Dallas Gooch

        Hopefully they’re saving the more popular characters for later. I mean they implied that there was gonna be a decent amount of playable characters. It’s not a warriors game without a shit ton of characters.

  • mrjoedawgbrother

    At this point, they can put the old man from the cave in this game, and it won’t matter. I will be buying this. All aboard….

  • Vextrum

    I think this game should be retitled “Female Zelda Overpowered Beatdown Warriors… +Link”

    • Joseph Oliveira

      Sounds like a band.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      Isn’t Zant a playable character?

      • Galanosgladius

        They said he was in the game, but they(in the original interview) didn’t say anything about him being playable.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Okay. Thanks for clearing that up. Wii U Daily had an article saying Zant is a playable character but I was wondering if they were right. I know Wii U Daily isn’t always correct. Like, when they said Agorok is a playable character. We’ll just have to wait and see.

          • Squid

            Usually in dynasty warriors, from what I heard, you can play as the villains at a point. Maybe they will partner up in the story or maybe you unlock them upon beating the game.

          • 00EpicGamer00

            That’s a very good point. I’m pretty sure at least Ganondorf will be playable…he has to be, lol. Though, I would reallly like a legit Zelda game where Ganondorf and Link must put aside their differences and “team up” in order to defeat a much larger threat.

      • Dallas Gooch

        http://www.gamecity.ne.jp/zelda/character.html
        I’ve been stalking this site for a while now lol

        • 00EpicGamer00

          That would have been so helpful. I was hoping Zant would be playable, though. Oh well, it’s good to know who’s been confirmed for what. I shall bookmark that page, lol.

          • Dallas Gooch

            Who knows, it could change in the end but it’s doubtful, hoping they keep a series going like they did with DW Gundam and OP Pirate Warriors with more characters and features.

    • Galanosgladius

      Well, during Nintendo tree-house the play-testers said the current(unrevealed) cast is fairly evenly split between males and females.

    • http://Website.com/ Shane Michaels

      Females are too hard to do in video games, said Ubisoft.
      Nintendo says, we’re only doing females in our game. And we’re making Link girly as well. You’re welcome.

  • Gameonfool

    This game is packed with more content than I thought there would be.

  • Themasteroftruth

    Well at least you’ll all have something to enjoy before the wii u is cancelled.

  • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

    WHAT THE…!!! O_O

  • Tacorevolution

    I don’t mean to sound like a jerk, but I’m surprised how many people actually liked fi. She’s such a boring emotionless character. And man was she annoying! People said navi was annoying, but fi is like navi’s annoyance on steroids.

    • Daniel Carvalho

      I liked the concept of she being with Link through all his incarnation cycles (where he draws the Master Sword) by sleeping within the Master Sword. But yeah they should have worked more on the relationship between her and Link instead of making her an emotionless robot until the very end. She didn’t have any character development until the eleventh hour, and that came out of nowhere as a Deus Ex Machina for feelings.

      • firedragonsage88

        I agree. I liked her concept. Execution could have been better.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      The worst thing is that she destroyed the story behind the Master Sword. Now theres no turning back. The master sword is a fucking robot.

      • C4

        I don’t consider SS as canon.

      • darkcreap

        Agreed. I hate fi. Both the robot thing and the fact that she was so annoying.

      • Squid

        I haven’t completed SS, I know Fi is the spirit of the master sword, but is it possible that they said the reason for her existance and how and why the master sword was created?

      • Daniel Carvalho

        She just sleeps within the Master Sword, she isn’t the Sword itself.

  • The Clockwork Being

    Oh so this week is probably Skyward Sword week since we can see there is a SS Zelda costume and since Fi has been announced.

    But we all know what the best of Skyward Sword will be Groose

    The Groose will definitely be loose

  • URTV

    I want to see the Mask Seller show up. His special is to rip people’s faces off and turn them into masks.

    • 00EpicGamer00

      I think the game would have to be rated M if that happens on screen, lol.

      • Epicstuf

        No blood. No red blood, anyways.

        • 00EpicGamer00

          Regardless if there’s blood, it seems like M rated material. Watching a guy riping someone’s face is okay for a child to see? I don’t think so, lol. Just imagining what it’d looks like…even without blood is terrifying. O.O

          • Epicstuf

            Yes. Yes it is.

    • Magnus Eriksson

      Reminds me of a drawing that made me banned from Miiverse. I made a picture of Mario skinning a tanookie to make himself a suit. When I get allowed back I will draw your version of the happy mask seller.

    • Mike

      I swear that dude is some sort of ninja… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhQlnSH2Ur0

  • XelaFury

    You can definitely say that Fi’s strongest weapon will be her own voice.

  • ShortyStock

    Also, the translation of this article confirms Ghirahim and the Imprisoned (does that mean Demise?) as new villains. Although there’s still no word if you can PLAY as the villains.

  • Joseph Oliveira

    Just give me Marian.

  • Justin Thomas McGowan

    TINGLE!!!! That is all.

  • Sdudyoy

    What does she do? talk her opponents to death?

  • Arale Norimaki

    I want Groose in this game make it happen!

    • Sonic 2099 The Hedgehog

      Maybe?

    • Mike

      We need Tingle first though.

    • ★Zee~Star★

      He’ll be in so hold your horses.

  • Moyack

  • bistricky

    The more playable characters, the better ….. I pre-ordered Hyrule Warriors yesterday, so I am happy. :D

  • Squid

    Away from her silly percentage/computer talk. This is a good idea, especially that Fi is the spirit of the master sword, she can pull off magic and she can be very swift in movement, seeing that she skates on water.

  • Weslee Hardin

    There is nothing wrong with Fi. She is the mightiest weapon of all time. She gives inspiring speeches even if she doesn’t talk much and she’s a sword. Also if your a Bleacher then you should like Fi. She’s a Sword spirit. Hahaha

  • Squid

    I’m personally hoping for Hilda, Ravio, to be characters or costumes, Skull Kid, Fierce Deity, and Ralph from oracle of seasons.

  • AM Real

    Dunno why all the hate for Fi…I really didn’t mind her at all…her songs and dance animation looked dope and the ending was full of emotion…I guess I like her childlike/learning A.I mystique

  • AM Real

    I’m gonna guess that they’ll also have Skyward Sword DLC skins eventually

    • 00EpicGamer00

      If you look at the bottom right of the picture. You can see Link and Zelda how they appear in Skyward Sword. I’m assuming that’s the DLC skins.

  • Miles “Tails” Prower

    I hope this game has some online features. I would love to play this with my friends.

  • Nathan C.

    THIS IS SEXIST! I WANT MORE MALE CHARTERS HERP DER

    • Epicstuf

      It’s actually the other way around.

  • george

    now we only need ghirahim and ganondorf and the game will have a badass roster

    • ★Zee~Star★

      They will be enemies

  • 00EpicGamer00

    For all the people (which is probably everyone) that is wondering where the male characters are, I think Nintendo is going to reveal all the female characters first, and then male ones after. Cause’, you know what they say, “ladies first.” HUR DUR!

    • Decker Shado

      Or they’re going to do an anime tie-in, and it turns out that Hyrule Warriors: The Anime, is going to be a harem style show.

      I wouldn’t mind.

  • ★Zee~Star★

    Yes Fi! Now give me Malon, Tingle, Groose, Talon, the King of the Dragons, the Zora Prince and the Zora Queen.

    • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

      Zora Prince did nothing but get sick. Zora Queen did nothing but die. By your logic, the bug catcher kid and flute boy from A Link to the past deserve to be in this game

      • ★Zee~Star★

        Look, I said who I want to be in this game, not who DESERVE To be in, now STFU.

        • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

          Please remove your knickers out of a bunch, not that serious

  • URFTBOUND4LIFE .

    This guy….nuff said

  • Epicstuf

    I wonder what she is going to do. Nag enemies to death?
