Hyrule Warriors Legends

A new Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer has been published by Nintendo of America. To watch it, check out the video below.

Update (1/31): Bumped to the top. Pre-orders for the guide are now $7.18 off (thanks Jake).

Original (1/25): Much like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, Hyrule Warriors Legends will be receiving a guide from Prima. Amazon has a listing up for a special collector’s edition version.

Here’s what fans can expect from the guide:

New Content: Including characters and tools.

Master Combat: Expert battle tactics provide the precise button presses and timing required to defeat your foes and capture territory for Zelda’s forces.

Comprehensive Bestiary: Exploit each creature’s weaknesses—including the Bosses–by using items and fighting techniques.

Find Every Item: Use everything in your arsenal to accomplish special tasks!

Free Mobile-Friendly eGuide: Includes a code to access the eGuide, a web-access version of the complete guide optimized for a second-screen experience.

Prima’s Hyrule Warriors Legends guide is due out alongside the game on March 25. The company’s limited edition guides are only printed once, so when they sell out, they’re gone for good.

Media Create reported this week that Hyrule Warriors Legends moved 54,479 copies in its first week in Japan. The sales tracker didn’t provide any additional details about how it performed, but thankfully, Dengeki has a tiny bit of extra information.

Dengeki’s own data puts Hyrule Warriors Legends at 55,694 copies sold in its first week. We also now know that the game sold through 60 percent of its initial shipment.

When Hyrule Warriors originally came out on Wii U, the title sold 69,090 copies in its first week. Media Create said it sold through 57.33 percent of its initial shipment.


Hyrule Warriors Legends does not currently have an option to reset save data. For some players, they’ve found this to be a problem when they want to sell it to the used games market.

There is good news though! The official Hyrule Warriors Legends Japanese Twitter account acknowledged that you can’t clear save data, but they would like to implement this as soon as possible. It should be added in via an update sometime in the future.


Hyrule Warriors Legends made its way to Japan a couple of days ago. Naturally, Famitsu published its review of the game in one of its recent issues. Four editors dished out scores of “9”, “9”, “8”, and “10” for a total score of 36 out of 40.

We now have a complete translation of Famitsu’s review. To read it in full, head past the break.

Hyrule Warriors Legends won’t be out in the west until March. However, it looks like the game’s translations are essentially complete.

It appears that those who have picked up Hyrule Warriors Legends in Japan can play through the game in English. This includes story scenes with the narrator as well as subtitles and other text. Check out some English footage below.

TiLMENDOMiNATiON has put together another comparison video for Hyrule Warriors Legends. We’re once again able to see how the game’s performance is on the New 3DS vs. the original model. Take a look at the comparison below.

Twilight Princess HD isn’t the only Zelda-related game that provides unique functionality when using the Wolf Link amiibo. If you scan the figure in the new 3DS game, players can unlock enhanced weapons for Midna. It’s a neat little bonus that I don’t believe we heard about previously!

Hyrule Warriors Legends has a new release date in Europe, although it’s only a very minor change. The game is being brought one day forward to March 24. This is due to Good Friday taking place the very next day.

Nintendo posted the news on Twitter a couple of minutes ago, writing:


Koei Tecmo published the 5th and final official gameplay video of Hyrule Warriors Legends today. Once again, this features producer Yosuke Hayashi and voice actress Ruriko Aoki playing the game.
