Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition

As much as I love the Zelda series, experiencing Link’s many adventures, there was always one adventure I wanted to see Link undertake: War. In 2014 my wish would become a reality and just as soon as Hyrule Warriors came onto the scene, there would be no escaping it.

This incredible game arrived on the Wii U and gave me exactly what I wanted, only Hyrule Warriors would not remain exclusive to the tablet console. In 2016, the musou title would be ported to the Nintendo 3DS and come packed with an epilogue to the original game’s main story and it would also receive a ton of new content.

Fast forward to 2018, not even a full year after Fire Emblem Warriors was released, Hyrule Warriors would receive yet another port, only this time around, while Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition would not receive any paid DLC of its own, it is the most content packed version of the game to date, taking the best of both worlds and sticking it all on a single cartridge.

Just in case an extra incentive was needed, this deluxe version would also see Link and Zelda receive one additional outfit, based on their appearances from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but the weirdest thing of them all, is just how addicted I am to all things Warriors!

Despite the fact I had already played Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends to completion, I still couldn’t help but triple dip and playthrough everything the very expansive Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has to offer.
It’s so full of content that requires hundreds of hours just to complete it all, yet even despite the repetition one can experience in a single playthrough, I constantly find myself picking it up and endeavoring to complete it for the third and final time. A warrior’s work is never done and neither is the awesomeness that is Hyrule Warriors!

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Review:

Initial Release: March 22, 2018
Pricing: $59.99 USD
Category: Action, Adventure, Fighting
Players: up to 2 players

Just because it isn’t canon, it doesn’t mean Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition isn’t an incredible game. Sure, it’s full of fan service and some players were left hoping other characters would be added, (Groose), there simply is no denying the fact that Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is a content-packed game that will certainly keep players occupied for a long time. It is very repetitive, but it is pure value for money and the best of both worlds as far as it’s previous releases are concerned.
