Needed the additional processing power

There's a max Rupee glitch in Hyrule Warriors

Can you pull it off?
Feb 26
9,999,999 Rupees in Hyrule Warriors. Yeah, I could go for that. The game's community has been working tirelessly to figure out a newly discovered glitch that involves slaying a giant boss (King Dodongo, Gohma, etc.) with a w...

I still hate Liu Bei

Hyrule Warriors ships one million units worldwide, which is damn good for the Wii U

Tingle and Young Link join the fray!
Jan 14
A Majora's Mask DLC pack is coming to Hyrule Warriors on February 5. The add-on features two new characters (Tingle and young Link with the Fierce Deity's mask), a new adventure mode, plus a trio of costumes, one of which sure looks a lot like Skull Kid.

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

An all-new weapon and daily items
Nov 17
Nintendo has explained which amiibo toys do what in Hyrule Warriors and, frankly, the game's support for the near-field communication figurines is rather dull. With Link (or Toon Link), players can get the Spinner weapon from...

Hyrule Warriors' 'Master Quest' DLC is worth the price of entry if you're already addicted

It's not as new as I would have liked, but it keeps me going
Oct 17
Hyrule Warriors is a massive game. If you want to 100% everything, get every weapon, and max out every character, it could last you roughly 200 hours or more. I'm hitting the 100-hour mark myself, due in part to the new ...

'Zelda's Lullaby'

Grass cutting CONFIRMED for Hyrule Warriors

It made the cut!
Aug 04
Cutting grass is an important part of The Legend of Zelda, you know. So, we were happy to hear series producer Eiji Aonuma confirm during tonight's Nintendo Direct that this time-honored tradition would be making a glorious return in Hyrule Warriors.
