As announced in this month’s Nintendo Direct Mini, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. In the latest issue of Famitsu Magazine, some of its pages were graced coverage of the game, mainly confirming that it will contain all the Characters, Maps, Modes and Features from the Wii U and 3DS version, this also includes the possibility to change characters on the battlefield which was in the 3DS version but not in the Wii U version.

The article also revealed that the Definitive Edition is 95% complete and will be releasing in Japan on March 22nd, so we should be seeing a western release shortly after. There shouldn’t be much in the way of localization because it has already been done for the Wii U & 3DS version and being so that there is no extra content other than few Breath of the Wild outfits for Link & Zelda.

That wasn’t all from the article. There was also a special mecial from the Producer of the game, Yosuke Hayashi, which you can read below:

It was announced during a Nintendo Direct a few days ago, but Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will be released on Nintendo Switch on March 22 in Japan.

This title will include both Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends with all additional content. We’ve been receiving a lot of requests from our fans that they “want to play Hyrule Warriors on Nintendo Switch,” so we’re able to realize this project.

We’ve tuned the game for Nintendo Switch, upgraded the graphics to full HD, and adjusted the balance so that the game becomes easier to play.

Furthermore, it will also have new features like additional costumes from Breath of the Wild and Joy-Con share play.

This is truly the ultimate Hyrule Warriors, so to both players who have never played it and those who have experienced the game, please kindly play this.

To finish off, here are some new screenshots that we promised you of the Definitive Edition.
