Nintendo and Koei Tecmo recently revealed that Hyrule Warriors Legends is adding a new character with Skull Kid and a new villain in Phantom Ganon. Famitsu and the game’s official website provides us with the latest screenshots and details.
Skull Kid uses his ocarina as his weapon, and fights alongside his fairies called “Chat” and “Trail.”
Phantom Ganon fights with his giant swords and powerful magic.
There’s also a new system called the “Smash Boost Power,” which is used against the giant bosses. While using features such as “Player Change” or “Ocarina Warp” you can get four characters around the giant boss, and recover your magic meter, and other effects. Depending on the number of characters that show up, the Smash Boost Power will change.
Hyrule Warriors Legends is also introducing a new Wind Waker stage.
Hyrule Warriors Legends will release in Japan on January 21, 2016 for Nintendo 3DS. The game will release in early 2016 for North America and Europe.
