Hyrule Warriors Comes to Switch With Definitive Edition

Hyrule Warriors Comes to Switch With Definitive Edition

You won't find a better version of Hyrule Warriors.

Nintendo is giving Hyrule Warriors one last release, following the Wii U and 3DS versions. The original releases presented a Zelda adventure in the style of Omega Force's Dynasty Warriors series, with the Zelda characters fighting against huge armies of foes. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition includes the original game and all the downloadable content, meaning you get a full roster of 29 characters. The game will also include new outfits for Link and Zelda based on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

When the game is docked, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is playable in 1080p, and we guess it's likely a native 720p for the portable side. Two player multiplayer is available on a single Switch with each player using a single Joy-Con.

This is great move, as the Wii U version was pretty good, but lacked portability and had a few performance issues when a ton of enemies were onscreen. The 3DS version increased those performance issues, with some poor image quality. Hopefully, Nintendo, Team Ninja, and Omega Force have stomped out those performance problems for some smooth play on Nintendo Switch.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch this Spring.
