Review: Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition (Nintendo Switch) via Digitally Downloaded

For people who didn't play through the DLC on the Wii U version, or want a portable version of Hyrule Warriors that doesn't feel like a one massive compromise after another, Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is essential.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Review via Twinfinite

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will be a much more appealing and enticing prospect to those who haven't already played the game. This is one of the most fleshed out and content-filled Warriors games I've seen in a long time, and even if you aren't a Zelda fan, there's still plenty here to charm you if you're not turned off by the repetitive combat.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Review – A Link between swords via Critical Hit

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition has all of the quality of the 3DS version that built on the Wii U original (and some of the more recent Fire Emblem Warriors improvements added for good measure) and none of the drawbacks.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition - Empty Calories | We Got This Covered via We Got This Covered

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is the definitive Warriors game, but The Legend of Zelda gets nothing out of this relationship.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition Nintendo Switch Review via The Digital Fix

The third version of Hyrule Warriors is certainly the best version. The tweaks made to this version help it to be more enjoyable than the original and with all the DLC included, this is an incredible amount of content to work through. Worth playing if you love it, need a good co-op game, or haven't played it, but it won't win over any new fans.

I would highly recommend this, much more than I would Fire Emblem Warriors. Fire Emblem Warriors is riddled with clones and seems to clearly have been made to cash in on a franchise without a ton of love poured in. Hyrule Warriors, especially Definitive Edition, has oodles of content, uniquely designed characters all throughout, and is clearly made by people who know their Zelda and love the franchise to death. If you're thinking of deciding between the two Warriors games, go for Hyrule Warriors.

@McWhoopass This. I'm not fond of Fire Emblem, but Zelda just rocks.

Still trying to decide if I want to double dip on this one. I played a decent amount of the Wii U version, but never picked up the DLC or got too deep into the bonus adventure mode, which I hear is one of the biggest highlights of the game.

I’m torn between this and Fire Emblem Warriors. I imagine both offer a similar experience. On the one hand we have the venerable Zelda universe that seems like a blast to play all the favorite characters but it’s still a port of an older game. Then there’s Fire Emblem warriors which was crafted from the ground up on the Switch and also offers a large cast of favorites to play as.

I considered Fire Emblem Warriors, but wasn't familiar enough with the series to spring for it. Given the inclusion of Breath of the Wild character models, I'll be getting this.
