Hey, folks! Welcome to our Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Character Unlock Guide. In this guide, we will take you through who each of the characters are and how to unlock them in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has 29 different characters to choose from. It includes series staples like Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, and Impa, as well as some series favourites like Ravio, Skull Kid, Ruto, and Darunia. There even some original characters exclusive to Hyrule Warriors with the likes of Cia, Lana, Volga, and Wizzro.

In Hyrule Warriors on Wii U or Hyrule Warriors Legends on the Nintendo 3DS, most of the characters were unlocked through story progression of Legend Mode. For Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, however, the characters locked to story progression can now be unlocked simply by playing through the first mission (Prologue: Armies of Ruin) in Legend Mode. It is also the only mode available to play when you have only just started playing the game. The rest of the characters are rewarded to you through Adventure Mode. You have to beat the mission with at least a C Rank in order to unlock them.

We have listed all characters below and what you need to do to unlock them
