Zelda Hyrule Warriors was an unexpected project in the line of Nintendo, which left a lot of questions after its announcement.
Nobody knew exactly how the iconic characters of the world of Zelda would collide with each other.
And the chosen format in the style of Dynasty Warriors hardcore fans of the series was surprising.
That did not prevent the game to win the sympathy of a variety of gamers, including completely with the Hyrule world of strangers.
The game was first published on the Wii U, where it received good reviews from the players and critics.
Then it appeared on 3DS, offering a lot of innovations.
But not deserving the right people’s love because of the technical limitations of the console itself.
And, finally, I got to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition,the most complete and best edition.
Skip that can only completely indifferent to the genre and Zelda people.
The rest of this project will obviously have to taste.
Definitive Edition – a new edition of the game, which includes the original Wii U version.
All add-ons to it, as well as all updates from zelda hyrule warriors Legends with 3DS.
At the same time, the main trump of the new edition is not the abundance of content that provides more than a dozen hours of play.
Even for those who decide to pass the project fluently, but graphic execution.
The hardware of the new console allowed to raise the overall level of graphics by choosing a brighter color scheme, improved textures and higher resolution.
While ignoring all the technical limitations that hindered previous versions of the game.
Even small jerks and slowdown of gameplay with a large number of enemies on the screen (several times higher than what was on the 3DS), inherent in all games in the genre Musou, is not observed.
Therefore, the new edition is pleasant to play, both in mobile mode, and connecting Switch to the TV.
If for you the names of Musou or Dynasty Warriors (which is the same thing) do not say anything.
Then I’ll try to explain what kind of games they are and what zelda hyrule warriors look like.
This game is about the destruction of key characters by a huge number of enemies on the battlefield.
Pass from hand to hand locks, doors are closed, mini-bosses are called and both subject and event bosses come.
The player has to constantly run and fight, and not just press on a couple of buttons.
But use special abilities and combo strikes to quickly strip out the card.
At the same time, you can explore the locations, discover secrets.
Help the characters you meet, and perform maths that open access to new content.
And in between the fights there is a drama in the rollers, the story develops.
We learn more about each of the characters and continue to play.
Collecting various unlocks to improve the characters and get new equipment for each of them.
The nearest relative of zelda hyrule warriors on Swtich is Fire Emblem Heroes.
And the FE universe in the world is not as well known as Zelda.
Therefore, zelda hyrule warriors is simpler and more understandable than this game.
And beginners should familiarize themselves with the genre with HW: DE, and then move on to FEH.
The game offers different modes, but only in the mode of history we are told a story arc and give a play by the characters in turn.
Initially, at each location was a target for a certain hero and the passage opened up new fighters as the story progressed, and the player had no particular choice.
But now you only need to go through the first mission to open all the game modes.
And then 16 of 31 characters will be opened (with additional suits, including exclusive sets for Link and Zelda) for all modes, and the rest we open, going through the plot and testing .
And you can take several of them into battle, switching between them as needed or sending additional fighters to different parts of the map to complete the tasks (this possibility was realized in Legends, but it was not convenient to use it).
The modes are interesting on their own, but apart from the plot, the adventure mode is extremely exciting.
On the cards you need to open the squares-locations, cleaning them and getting rewards.
And each such test is very difficult, because you are battling with hero bosses (for example, the Dark Link).
And battles can take place without either healing potions, or with a time limit, or with some other trick.
Therefore, it will be interesting to fight.
And you need to pump heroes for such battles, because ordinary fighters without anything in trials above the entry level can not do anything.
The game feels great not only in the solo mode, but also in the cooperative passage.
Playing together with one console is quite convenient and it does not affect the performance of the system.
Therefore, you can play with friends around the world, if not confusing the small console screen.
Passing levels and performing tasks together is not only more fun, but also much faster.
The problem with the Definitive Edition is that it does not bring any new content to the zelda hyrule warriors, except for a couple of suits.
This is just a complete publication, including all the characters, all levels, improvements and tests from previous versions.
And if you are a fan of the series, who spent several hundred hours in the game and dropped all achievements, dragging you into the game cycle will be very difficult.
But those who did not pass the game, did not see it before or just got the first console from Nintendo and it turned out to be Switch – they will be most interesting.
The adventures already available in the game will last for tens, if not hundreds, of real time.
And it does not matter if you are a fan of Zelda or just looking for a good action-project.
You will like this trip to the world of Hyrule.
