First up is Agitha, the self-proclaimed “princess of the bug kingdom” from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. She uses her parasol and can summon large beetles and grasshoppers to help her fight.

As the video shows, we should have more details shortly. But judging solely off of last year's game, we hope that the feature set is more complete and that it finds a way to manage its ever-expanding controls.
