Nintendo is set to debut a long-waited Zelda title on the Wii U this fall, but it wasn’t exactly the one that fans were expecting with its Zelda/Dynasty Warriors mash-up, Hyrule Warriors – luckily, the latest trailers for the game have shown it will be a Zelda experience unlike any other.

The latest Japanese trailer for the game highlights Princess Zelda as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors, and just from the trailer alone it’s easy to see she is a serious badass. Combining the fast-paced hack ‘n slash combat of the Dynasty Warriors series with the world, characters, items, and imagery from The Legend of ZeldaHyrule Warriors brings in a number of characters from the series like Link, Zelda, Midna, and Impa to do battle against hundreds of enemy adversaries.

Hyrule Warriors releases for Wii U on September 26th, 2014 – in the meantime, you can check out the latest Japanese trailer and an ass-kicking glimpse at Zelda below:
