Hyrule Legends: Warriors is a Nintendo 3DS reimagining of the Wii U original, complete with new characters from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.
We already suspected this was on the way, but it’s exciting to see officially all the same – Hyrule Warriors is making its way to the Nintendo 3DS. Presented as a reimagining of the original, the newly revealed Hyrule Warriors: Legends will include all of the Wii U DLC characters along with some new additions. While there’s no Linkle in sight, you’ll still get access to heroes from The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, and will be able to play in Q1 2016.
From the sound of things, Hyrule Warriors: Legends won’t mix up the Wii U formula too much. Just like Dynasty Warriors before it, the game will offer enormous battles with a Legend of Zelda twist as the characters from various Zelda timelines come together against new threats. Its biggest appeal is being able to repackage the game as a mobile experience, but having access to all prior DLC characters is certainly worthwhile.
