Fans have been speculating for weeks that Nintendo will host one of its Direct streams sometime in January. Well, Nintendo came through today with a Nintendo Direct Mini, detailing some new upcoming Switch titles. While the presentation was relatively light on Zelda content, there was one nice Zelda-related piece of news: Hyrule Warriors is coming to the Switch this Spring! Originally released on the Wii U, the new Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will include all the maps and playable characters from the original version, plus new Breath of the Wild-based outfits for Link and Zelda. Since the Wii U didn’t get a whole lot of love, it is great to see Nintendo continue to port some of its most popular games to the Switch. Here’s hoping that trend doesn’t stop anytime soon!
