One of the major announcements made during Nintendo’s ‘Digital Event’ presentation was a collaboration with Koei Tecmo, Omega Force and Team Ninja to port the Wii U exclusive Hyrule Warriors over to the Nintendo 3DS as Hyrule Warriors Legends. Given this is not a New Nintendo 3DS exclusive title which (as proven with Xenoblade Chronicles) gives a bit more leeway in terms of replicating a home video console experience, I am curious what sacrifices (if any) they will make to present this port while including brand new content.
This port is set to feature the entire Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors, in addition to featuring new characters (Tetra, King of Hyrule) sourced from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. A handful of other new features are also being introduced, such as the ability to switch between different characters on the fly, the ability to strategically position characters and “defeat foes in all-new ways like never before”.
This Action/Adventure game will be available worldwide in Q1 2016. More specifics are presumably going to be announced in the coming months.
