In the January Nintendo Direct Mini, Nintendo announced the definitive edition of Hyrule Warriors for the Switch. With the addition of Breath of the Wild costumes, some fans have speculated that there might be a possibility for even more content whether in the form of the base game or through DLC. Tris has provided an excellent analysis which you should check out here. Today, the Source Gaming team has come together to list at most three pieces of content they would like to see in the next Hyrule Warriors — whether it be through DLC or in the base game. The additions can be modes, characters, maps or costumes.
I would really like to see some Triforce Heroes content. I think having three Links stacked on each other would make a fun and interesting character. The music and a map inspired by the game would be great as well. Triforce Heroes had a lot of interesting costumes with the game, so their inclusion would make a lot of sense.
The second piece of content I would like to see is Groose. Groose is a fan favorite and a character that a lot of people would really love to see. It’s time to let the Groose loose!
The last piece of content I would love to see, and this is another character is Linebeck. Linebeck is a fantastic character who was in The Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks. Linebeck is another fan favorite and is a very popular character within the Zelda universe. Linebeck was even referenced in Triforce Heroes through its’ DLC, so his omission from Hyrule Warriors is definitely noticeable.
If I had more options I’d definitely add more content from Breath of the Wild. It just goes to show you there is still a lot of content to add to Hyrule Warriors.
It’s never going to happen, but I would love The Shopkeeper from Link’s Awakening. He’s literally the strongest character in all of Link’s Awakening, being an instant death if you steal from him. It’s such a silly idea, it’d be amazing to see actually come to fruition.
The last time we talked about this, I suggested Twinrova. And I still think she’d be a great addition, but c’mon: it’s gotta be Breath of the Wild. It’s the most important and exciting Zelda game since Ocarina of Time all the way back in 1998, and it looks poised to define the series to the extent that seminal game did. And what’s great is that there could be a number of ways to express that. We could get a Champion as a character; maybe Urbosa, as the only Gerudo? We could get a new weapon, like a Sheikah Slate for Link, or something crazy like Ganondorf riding around on a Guardian. A stage for the Great Plateau would be amazing, though I’m not hopeful enough for something like that, considering I’m pretty sure there weren’t any stages involved in the DLC.
But the biggest, at least for me, would have to be an Adventure Mode map. Seriously, imagine how great that could possibly be. It’d be as big as the original one, or even bigger. Imagine starting out south of center of the map, with big ole’ Hyrule Castle close, but not too close, and insistent that you get more “experience.” The best way to do that could be through beating stages, activating towers and the Divine Beasts, or other kinds of crazy things. Items would include torches, bombs, but also things like Korok leaves and the Stasis rune. There’s no realistic way it’d be able to represent the values of Breath of the Wild, and to be honest, I’m suspicious of the idea that we’d somehow see more content in this package, but it’d still be appreciated.
Last time I pointed towards Saria, Nabooru and Vaati as the characters that are “missing” from the game, and they still are. But this time I’ll suggest one mode that could add some fun to the game.
Korok Challenges! They could work in a similar way to the Gold Skulltulas, but instead of requiring to kill enemies to appear and need some sub-weapon to obtain, you could find some markings on the stages that trigger some small challenge, like run to other part of the map or break a number of items under a certain amount of time.
None so then I don’t have to buy it.
(but seriously if I have to pick then Urbosa, Hetsu, Vaati, Onox, Veran, Princess Styla. Cover all the missing games and main races.)
