At first glance, Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS might have appeared to be a fairly straightforward port of the surprisingly successful fusion of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors for Wii U. However, the growing roster of new characters is proving that this is much more than simply a portable version of the game. And this perception is made all the stronger with the addition of one of the franchise’s most memorable villains.
Gamers who pick up the portable brawler will be able to join the action with the Skull Kid from Majora’s Mask. Not too much is known about how the character will play, but considering the fact the mask he wears possesses the ability to pull a moon from orbit, I think it’s safe to assume Skull Kid will be able to bring the hurt. Also, the Famitsu issue revealing the inclusion of Skull Kid has also shown that another regular baddie, Phantom Ganon, will be showing up, though it appears he will just be a foe and not playable.
Hyrule Warriors Legends should come out in the first quarter of 2016, though only Japan has received a solid release date of January 21. However, if announcements like these keep coming, the wait is just going to get tougher and tougher.
