Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Gets Its First Nintendo Switch Trailer

New Japanese video released on Koei Tecmo's YouTube channel showcases the Definitive Edition's characters and their abilities.


We're getting our first look at a trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch. The new version of the 2014 game brings all the explosive combat and gameplay to the Switch, with a bunch of new additions. Check out the video above, released in Japanese by Koei Tecmo.

The trailer gives you a better look at the game's characters and their powers and abilities. The Switch version contains the complete Wii U game, with all of the maps, missions, characters, and DLC from both the original Wii U release and the expanded 3DS version, including Yuga and Ravio from A Link Between Worlds. The Definitive Edition also has new Breath of the Wild-themed costumes for Link and Zelda.

Now Playing: Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition - Character Trailer (Japanese)

As in the Wii U version, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will support two-player local multiplayer, with each player using one of the Joy-Cons to play. The game is a hack-and-slash, Dynasty Warriors-style spin-off of the Zelda series. It will release for the Switch some time this spring.

The Switch version of Hyrule Warriors was announced during last week's surprise Nintendo Direct, but it wasn't the only port of an older game Nintendo revealed. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze is also coming to Switch, along with Dark Souls Remastered and the cult DS classic The World Ends with You.
