Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition announced for Nintendo Switch

2 min read


I freakin’ love me a good hack ‘n slash game. Nothing symbolises that genre better than the musou games of the Dynasty Warriors series, a series which has managed to earn a devoted following over the years with not only their franchise but by also applying that formula of cutting down everything with a pulse to other well-known gaming icons.

Team Ninja and Omega Force did just that in 2014 with Hyrule Warriors, a spin-off starring that warrior in emerald who has to keep reminding people that his name isn’t Zelda. Link’s latest adventure was solid stuff, but hardly played on the Wii U as most people opted for the 3DS version instead. A second chance is on the horizon for Link however. as the Nintendo Switch will provide a larger screen for him to hack away on.

Here’s a trailer and a synopsis straight from Nintendo for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition:

A new, ultimate version of the exhilarating action game set in the Zelda universe will include every map and mission, plus all 29 playable characters from both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game, along with all of the previous paid downloadable content. Play as Link, Zelda, Midna, Skull Kid and dozens more in action-packed battles at home or on the go. Additionally, the game includes new outfits for Link and Zelda based on the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game.

All the content of the Wii U and 3DS games, available in one tight package. You can expect to wave your Master Sword around the time of the US Spring in 2018.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
