Nintendo had its newest Nintendo Direct yesterday, and we finally got a release date for Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition. It will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch May 18th. There really wasn’t much else given to us except for the release date. I was hoping to see some new gameplay from new characters, even if it is just a port and we have a good idea of what to expect. Along with the release announcement for Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition, we also got a quick sneak peek of Link’s appearance in the new Super Smash Bros. game, which will be coming out sometime during 2018. It does appear to be the Link from Breath of the Wild, but that has not been confirmed yet.
You can check out the Nintendo Direct below or on YouTube here. The Hyrule Warriors announcement is at 25:35. Normally we would set the video to start at this time, but we thought you might want to watch the whole thing!
