Darkness reaches Hyrule

As Princess Zelda and the Hyrulean General Impa watch over their sparring soldiers-in-training, including a talented young trainee named Link, a dark army marches upon Hyrule. Quick to react, Zelda faces the assault head-on with the full might of her army, but the swarm of otherworldly invaders soon begins to overwhelm the Hyrulean army.

Answer the call to arms

Unable to sit back as war erupts outside, Link leaves the confines of Hyrule Castle to join the battle. During an encounter with a powerful foe, the Triforce of Courage awakens within Link, saving both his life and Impa’s, who recognises him as the chosen hero of Hyrule. After a long battle, Link and the Hyrulean Forces push the threat back, only to learn that some of their enemies were able to creep into Hyrule Castle, and Princess Zelda has gone missing.

Journey through time

Impa and Link prepare for battle and set out to find Zelda, meeting new allies such as the mysterious Sheik and a young sorceress known as Lana. Their journey takes them across time through different Hyrules of the past, each equally troubled, where they team up with skilled fighters from each world. They’ll need as much help as they can get – it’s going to take all the strength of Hyrule’s greatest warriors, past and present, to reveal the cause of the chaos and bring peace back to Hyrule…

Tales don’t tell themselves…

As you progress through Legend Mode, you’ll discover new story branches and scenarios that expand on the main adventure. Follow Linkle on her journey to become a hero, get Cia’s side of the story or explore the Great Sea with Toon Link, Tetra and other familiar faces.

Meet the characters

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is packed with 29 playable characters from all over The Legend of Zelda universe – including heroes, villains and even some surprising allies!

Heroes

Villains

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition blends the lore of The Legend of Zelda with the over-the-top action of Dynasty Warriors. Take down swarms of familiar foes on the battlefield with an array of incredible moves, and chain together earth-shaking combos that can swipe out swathes of enemies in one fell swoop.

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_ImpaFightingEnemies.bmp

To battle!

As you defeat enemies, you’ll build up a special meter, allowing you to unleash devastating special moves. If you gather enough magic, you can even activate the Focus Spirit ability, temporarily boosting your capabilities and giving your special moves even more bite!

It’s not all about simply taking down the most bad guys; it’s more important to retain control over the battle as a whole. Capture castle keeps by conquering the Keep Boss to increase your hold on the field, defeat key enemies to force the opposing army to retreat, and assist your allies to keep their morale high and ensure that they don’t back down.

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_FightingPowerfulEnemy_2.bmp

Weapon of choice

To the victors go the spoils – and in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, that means weapons! Additional weapons can be found during battle, each with their own properties. You might find a stronger sword that hits harder, or maybe even one that restores your health when you defeat enemies. Visit the Smithy to fuse weapons together to create your ideal arm.

Each character can get to grips with entirely different weapons that completely change their fighting style. Link is comfortable with a sword in his hand, but he can also incinerate his enemies with the Magic Rod or send the world spinning with Gauntlets.

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_BombsFromChest.bmp

On your travels you’ll also acquire familiar items from The Legend of Zelda series, which can be used to carve out new routes or smash down your enemies’ defences. Blow your way through boulders with bombs, slice down pesky plant-life and stun enemy soldiers with the boomerang, or give Gohma an eyeful with a well-aimed arrow!

Skillful shopping

Your power increases as you level up through combat, but you can also bolster your abilities by visiting the Bazaar. Take to the Training Dojo to level up characters that are lagging behind, mix up helpful potions in the Apothecary, or fuse weapons at the Smithy. Track down Gold Skulltulas during battle to unlock upgrades for your Bazaar, allowing you to improve your characters further!

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_BadgeMarket.bmp

Badge of honour

Using materials and Rupees found on the battlefield, you can craft Badges that expand your skillset nicely. Badges can be created for each character, and once applied their effects are permanent. Attack Badges can teach new combos, Defense Badges give you a hand when you’re taking the hits, and Assist Badges offer you an extra advantage by letting you use health potions or expanded special meters.

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_FairyStats.bmp

Hey! Listen!

As you explore the map in Adventure Mode, you might find fairies in jars. Rescue a fairy from an occupied Keep and you'll be able to bring them into battle with you, allowing you to use their powers to help your on the field. You'll need a full Magic gauge to summon your fairy, though!

Every fairy has affinity with a certain element such as fire, water, lightning, light and darkness. As your fairies grow, they'll level up and learn new Fairy Skills. Customise your fairies by feeding them to develop their affinity with elements or Fairy Skills. You can also dress them up in clothes, including tops, headgear and accessories, to get different bonuses, such as increased elemental damage.

You can enhance your battle prowess with amiibo

If you tap any The Legend of Zelda character amiibo (sold separately) in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, you'll unlock strong weapons for the relevant in-game character to wield! You can also tap any other amiibo once a day to receive random materials, weapons and Rupees. Every little helps!

See compatible amiibo

Venture into different modes and battle on multiple fronts, each with their own paths to victory. Each character’s level, Badges and created weapons carry over to all modes, so if you’re having a tough time in one mode, switch to another to train up and return later.

Become a legend

Enjoy an epic tale and fight your way through Hyrules of the past in Legend Mode. Play as some of Hyrule’s greatest warriors from the past and present, track down Princess Zelda and lead your forces to victory against thousands of enemies. Thwart The Dark Sorceress Cia’s plans for the sake of all Hyrule!

Go your own way

Find your own favourite fighter in Free Mode, where you take on the missions from Legend Mode using any characters you’ve unlocked. Replay stages with different characters, weapons and items and discover new strategies – or perhaps they’ll make for a tougher challenge.

CI_NSwitch_HyruleWarriorsDefinitiveEdition_AdventureModeMap2.bmp

Path to adventure

Explore maps from past quests in a new way in Adventure Mode. Select map squares to face unique challenges: you might have to defeat several boss characters, or beat a certain number of enemies against the clock! Ultimately, you’ll have to summon all your skill to defeat the Dark Ruler…

Earn higher battle ranks and you’ll be able to open more paths, allowing you to explore more freely. As you progress, you might even unlock new warriors or win Item Cards, which can be used to search map squares to find powerful weapons, additional routes and more!
