BOSTON – After finishing The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, I was devastated that the game was over. All I wanted was more adventures with Link and Zelda – specifically the versions clad in stylish blue tunics. Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch delivers just that, even if it’s a decidedly nontraditional format. The Switch port of the Wii U sleeper hit will include content from the 3DS version of the game, as well as brand-new outfits for its two most important characters.

I played through a level of Hyrule Warriors at PAX East 2018. It’s not quite the same thing as stepping back into Breath of the Wild, but between the familiar Zelda elements and the newly added costumes, it’s easily the next best thing. Hyrule Warriors operates on the same formula as Dynasty Warriors: You take control of two characters (you can switch between them) as you lead a number of AI-controlled forces to victory by completing a series of battlefield challenges against both cannon-fodder soldiers and huge bosses.
