Zelda Wields the Wind Waker in Hyrule Warriors

In addition to her sword, it looks like Princess Zelda will also be wielding the Wind Waker’s titular conductor’s baton in Hyrule Warriors.

Using the Wind Waker allows Zelda to fight waves of enemies not only by manipulating the wind, but by utilizing music-based attacks as well.

Zelda’s use of the Wind Waker is similar to Link’s ability to use a Fire Rod as opposed to his iconic Master Sword, altering his moveset and playstyle.
