It seems that almost every week there is something new to report on the upcoming Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS. Aside from being introduced to some of the new characters set to join the fight in Hyrule, it has been revealed that a new “My Fairy” system will also be incorporated into the game.
“My Fairy” is a new feature that allows you to raise your very own fairy, leveling up its varying stats using food and ware found throughout the game’s Adventure Mode. Once strong enough, these fairies can then join you as a powerful ally, unleashing powerful fairy magic when released in the heat of an epic battle. Below are some of the artist impressions of the fairies set to feature in the game.
The fairies are customizable too, and what type of food and wares you give to your fairy directly influences its overall appearance and characteristics in the game. Each fairy will also have its own attributes that will prove useful in specific situations and battles, so knowing which fairy to choose and when to use them adds a nice little strategy element to the epic hack-and-slash title. You will also be able to trade fairies with other 3DS owners through local connectivity.
Hyrule Warriors Legends releases in Japan next year on January 21, and in North America and Europe on March 25.
Is this a nice little extra touch for the 3DS outing of Hyrule Warriors Legends, or would you prefer it to be more in the vein of i’s Wii U counterpart with its no-nonsense, hack-and-slash action? Let us know in your comments below.
