Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition preload live on Switch


Comfort Food: The Game

I can try to fight it. I can pretend it won’t happen. But truthfully, it’s a foregone conclusion that I’ll get swept up playing Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for a couple hundred hours minimum, just like I did with the Wii U original. I barely touched the 3DS version, so I missed out on My Fairy Mode and some other odds and ends. That’s my justification for buying this game again and I’m sticking to it.

Nintendo has whipped up yet another character highlight trailer, this time focusing on Agitha, Zant, Midna, Twili Midna, and Toon Zelda. The bug princess is giving me terrible flashbacks and anyone who’s obsessively cleared out Adventure Mode with straight As will know what I’m talking about.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition doesn’t release until Friday, May 18, but it’s available for preload now on the Nintendo Switch eShop. The download comes in at 12.9GB.
