We’ll probably be getting larger screenshots tomorrow. Also, be on the lookout for the latest trailer for Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Hyrule Warriors Legends is once again featured in this week’s issue of Famitsu. As previously mentioned, the magazine highlights a new “My Fairy” system and Great Sea map in Adventure Mode.

Fairies act as partners on your journey in Adventure Mode. If befriended, they will be in “My Fairy”. Fairies can unleash devastating attacks using fairy magic, and you can also customize special attributes. Just one can be taken into battle at a time.

IGN has more on Linkle, one of the new roster additions to Hyrule Warriors Legends, from Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma and Koei Tecmo producer Yosuke Hayashi. The two spoke with the site about Linkle’s origins, how the response from fans motivated the team to reconsider her, and the character’s personality. Head past the break for Aonuma and Hayashi’s comments.

Linkle is making her debut in Hyrule Warriors Legends. However, it’s possible that we’ll see the character in future Zelda games.

Speaking with IGN, series producer Eiji Aonuma said: “I’m sure we will keep her in mind when thinking about future titles.”

Aonuma also said that he was able to share input about Linkle during the development of Hyrule Warriors Legends:

“I had a chance to give feedback on Linkle during development, but the satisfying action of using a crossbow, which we developed for the spinoff title Link’s Crossbow Training, was implemented this time completely by Koei Tecmo. It may feel a little different from other titles in the franchise, but she doesn’t feel out of place at all in the world of the Zelda games.”


Famitsu has published a brief article about Hyrule Warriors Legends for its magazine coverage this week. In it, we learn about two new elements in the game.

First up, Hyrule Warriors Legends will have a “My Fairy” system. Famitsu doesn’t go in-depth about this, but indicates that it’ll be used to help players. Also confirmed is a new Great Sea map in Adventure Mode.

Expect more details about both of these items when Famitsu releases tomorrow.


Hyrule Warriors Legends is getting two special editions in Japan. Consumers will be able to pick up the Treasure Box or Premium Box, each of which comes with an art book. A first look at the cover can be viewed above.
