Not much to say about this game that wasn’t already said in my review for Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U. The game is essentially unchanged, however there are a few new features that make it much more compelling.
There is a new storyline relating to ‘Linkle’, also known as girl link. Linkle’s story is told with a series of new missions that appear mixed in with the original missions. Linkle comes across as a little scatter brained but I found that I preferred her to Link in battle. She has some crowd control attacks that are very satisfying.
Hyrule Warriors Legends contains a number of other changes but the best, in my opinion, is that you can now control the other characters in battle. Rather then controlling a single individual you can now use the touch screen to tell the other characters what to do or switch over and control them entirely. This helps immensely as you don’t have to spend the entire mission running back and forth putting out fires whilst the other characters are lollygagging around.
I found the mobile form of Hyrule Warriors to be much more convenient for play. I played much further into the game than I did on the Wii U version and I still have the game cartridge in my ‘active games’ box.
I consider this to be superior to the original in all categories with exception of graphics. If you have both a Wii U and a 3DS I’d recommend the 3DS version, unless you’re goofy like me and you get them both.
Is it fun: Yes
