Hyrule Warriors 3DS adds Toon Link and the Helmaroc King

Hyrule Warriors' play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we'll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I'm eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that jerk. Toes will ...

The Majora's Mask music in Hyrule Warriors is so damn catchy

Did you know there's a Chain Chomp in Hyrule Warriors?

I'm on track to put more time into Hyrule Warriors than any other videogame in 2014. This is coming from someone who has spent, at most, half an hour with Omega Force's past titles. I may not be a Dynasty Warriors fan -- and, hell, I'm ofte...

Hyrule Warriors' amiibo support is boring

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 The Legend of ...

Cucco's are still deadly in Hyrule Warriors

If you aren't familiar with the Zelda series, Cuccos are adorable little chickens who never attack the player character for any reason. Ok that's a lie, if you mess with a Cucco, you'll likely wind up dead, as they summon their entire...
