Last week, Koei-Tecmo once again updated the official website for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition in Japan, providing more details and pictures for the game (nothing really new, unfortunately). This time, the focus is on characters from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, and the My Fairy feature.
First, let’s start with the “new” characters):
- Midna (weapon: Magic)
- Agitha (weapon: Parasol)
- Zant (weapon: Sword)
- Midna (True Form) (weapon: Mirror)
- Toon Zelda (weapon: Sword)
We also have a list of bosses, that appear on some stages:
- King Dodongo
- The Imprisoned
- Helmaroc King
Some new stages have also been “revealed”:
- Twilight Field (from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
- Palace of Twilight (from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
- Temple of the Sacred Sword
- Temple of Souls (original)
Finally, the new details are about the My Fairy feature, that was first introduced in Hyrule Warriors Legends on Nintendo 3DS. Fairies are partners you can bring with you in Adventure Mode. They can provide you with various bonuses and support effects, such as increased attack power, increased defense, and much more.
But in order to make the most of those small but powerful creatures, you need to feed them special food at the Dining Room. This will make them grow, and level up their various abilities and bonuses (the Fairy Skills and Fairy Magic). In time, and with proper care, the fairies will turn into reliable partners!
Fairy Magic can be used in battle to attack enemies: once your magic gauge is full, you can activate it and unleash its powers. Said powers vary depending on how much the fairy has grown (the more they have grown, the larger the range of the attack, and you also get additional effects).
As for the Fairy Skills, they provide your characters with various support bonuses: stamina recovery, increased attack power, etc.. The more a fairy has grown, the better the effects are (and they also last longer).
You’re free to customise your fairies the way you want: you can choose which Fairy Skills and Fairy Magic they will have, depending on your playstyle, the challenges you’re trying to tackle, and more. You can also change their appearance with clothes at the Salon, which also provide special effects.
Finally, here’s the latest set of screenshots and artworks for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch:
Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (Switch) comes out on March 22nd in Japan, and this Spring in Europe and North America.
