Thus far we all’ve noticed series regulars, older favorites, buddies from the high seas, also interlopers in the Twilight, and now, we get a chance to go to some old friends and foes out of Skyward Sword along with A Link Between Worlds…and another very special guest.
That’s right: that trailer takes us back into Skyloft and our adventures throughout primordial Hyrule, first highlighting everybody’s favourite annoying robot girl, Fi. She jumps into frame with her bad understanding of private arenas and dances through enemies before clipping them to bits because a giant Aegislash-esque sword. She is followed by a fast cut to everyone’s favorite goddamn enthusiast, Ghirahim, who sadly doesn’t showcase his amazing tongue-licking intimidation abilities (seriously that has been horrifying for Connect). Rather, we expect to view his amazing repertoire of moves, including some classic ground-stinger sword summoning and also calling some minions to do his dirty work for him just like any fantastic villain should.
Then, we hop on over to the world of A Link Between Worlds…or, instead, we jump on over into the worlds. On our lineup of all-stars from this game is Ravio, who immediately showcases exactly what he’s all about by falling to the ground. He afterwards goes and enjoys Link’s home while the hero is out trying to save the planet. We get to test out Yuga (who is a man by the way, didn’t realize that until quite a ways through the game), who utilizes his own sorcery to produce a powerful blow.
Ultimately, we rounded up our highlights with a certain series regular…that’s appropriate, Ganondorf gets his time to shine in that which I find to be his best costume to date. With Triforce of Power hand (literally), he mops the floor by anybody who dares to challenge him. His moves consist of sweeping strikes from his giant swords and summoning a goddamn Dormin-demon Stand to decimate his ridiculous foes.
With this, it looks like we now’ve seen our past Character Highlight preview for Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. We’re not too far out from release, and Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition comes to the Switch May 18, 2018. It’ll include a roster of over 25 characters new and old–a lot of them featured at the five trailers which Nintendo has introduced to hype up the game’s Switch incarnation.
