Everything we know about Hyrule Warriors so far
Hyrule Warriors Legends is due out on the 25th March and with it being a collaboration between Nintendo and Koei Tecmo they have both been giving us information about the game, this is what we know so far.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will have everything, I mean everything from the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors plus more. How did they fit it on the 3DS? Some kind of shady deal with the devil no doubt. The extras include characters; Linkle (the adorable and badass dual crossbow wielding female Link), Toon Link, King Daphnes and Skull Kid. More story with there being chapters to play from Wind Waker and Linkle’s own story. There are also Fairies which are collected in adventure mode and can give various benefits across all modes, you can always dress these fairies with over 100 items of clothing. The limited edition will also come with Linkle’s compass.
In Japan at least it would seem if you buy the 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors you also get a code to download the new characters to the Wii U version. Hopefully Nintendo and Koei Tecmo will also include this when it comes West as it adds an extra incentive to buy the 3DS version for Wii U owners.
Youtuber NintenDaan has posted some videos of the new characters in action on the Wii U, watch them below,
Japan has a demo, however users are claiming unless you have a new 3DS the framerate is poor enough not to bother getting the game. Gamers being what they are, are catastrophising, saying that a not perfect frame rate means they won’t bother getting the game. GameXplain have posted a video comparing the Wii U version to a standard 3DS which I think looks fine, I like the cartoony graphics of the 3DS version and didn’t notice any framerate issues that would stop me enjoying the game.
It has also been reported that it will only run in 3D on a new 3DS and not the standard 3DS and XL, will that affect your decision on buying this or any other games if they did the same?
Feast your eyes upon the Hyrule edition 3DS XL which is available in the EU 24th March to celebrate the release of Hyrule Warriors Legends, it does look fantastic, any Zelda fans yet to get a new 3DS, this is the one for you as the new 3DS really is worth the upgrade.
Koei Tecmo are going to share with the world a beautiful Hyrule Warriors theme for 3DS. I imagine as with most games in Europe the deal will be if you pre-order the game or buy it from the eShop you’ll get the theme free. It will come with Zelda music, but Koei Tecmo have no announced which music, what do you hope it’ll be?
