Hyrule Warriors Legends launches in just four days, and to prepare for the big release, Nintendo has just launched the website for the game, which outlines all the details for the upcoming game. While we’ve gone over much of the upcoming content already, it’s still fun to look over everything else Nintendo has included in the website.
We’re greeted with a fairly simple homepage, which reminds us that this game is best played on the New 3DS. You can watch a trailer, and there’s a link to purchase the game as well. The home page is fairly unimpressive, but there is a navigation bar with five sections labeled “Uncover The Story,” “Meet The Warriors,” “Build Some Character,” “Find Your Inner Warrior” and “Gallery”.
In “Uncover The Story,” you’ll get a brief rundown of the game’s plot elements which, if you’ve played the original Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U, you should be familiar with already. In the sections of this page, you can get previews of the new stages based off of the Forsaken Fortress and Dragon Roost Island, as well as the new Boss Battle featuring the Helmaroc King.
“Meet The Warriors” is your chance to– you guessed it– see the playable characters in the game. There’s a total of 24 on this list, though notably, it doesn’t include the free character Medli that was announced just a little while back. Also keep in mind that this list is meant to expand– with the DLC plans outlined just a few days ago, we can expect quite a few more characters to join the Warriors roster. This list does, however, include the new-to-Legends characters, such as Tetra and Skull Kid!
“Build Some Character” is a page that outlines the customization aspects of Hyrule Warriors Legends. This is where the new feature My Fairy is introduced, telling us that we can use them to take down hordes of enemies with powerful magic. These fairies are customizable, with different clothes and looks unlocking special abilities for the fairies! There are also small blurbs about Challenge Mode, the Bazaar and new weapons– all features which should be familiar if you’ve played the original game. Oh, and the new Wolf Link amiibo will work to unlock a new weapon in this game!
“Find Your Inner Warrior” looks to be like an area where you’ll be able to take a quick that matches you to a specific Warrior. The quiz will also tell you what team members would be best to fight alongside that Warrior! Unfortunately, this quiz isn’t available yet, so you’ll have to check back to see when it is!
Lastly, the “Gallery” is simply a place for you to watch videos, trailers, and check out wallpapers of the game. While we’re sure you’ve already seen all of this stuff, it’s fun to see it all in one easily accessible place!
Overall, the website doesn’t offer a lot of new information. Part of this has to do with the fact that the Wii U version of the game has told us most of what we already know, and part of this is because the game only launches in four days, but it’s still nice to have all of this info at our disposal in one compact place.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will be released on March 25th. Pre-order your copy on Amazon today!
