Hyrule at war
The Sorceress Cia has begun her conquest of Hyrule. Great armies of good and evil are clashing, but the tide of battle can be changed by a single, powerful warrior. As the conflict unfolds and objectives change, use special weapons and items to fight your way through hordes of enemies. You can even find materials on the battlefield to upgrade your characters and weapons for future battles.
The way of the warrior
Each warrior has unique weapons and ferocious, over-the-top moves that you can unleash with the right combination of button presses. You'll need to master them to traverse battlefields, crush enemies and capture areas for Zelda's forces.
While you'll spend much of your time doling out high-volume punishment to hordes of enemies, you won't secure a battlefield without facing at least one powerful boss character. Find and exploit their weaknesses—use an item if need be—or they might just bring your battle to a premature end.
Sometimes courage and skill will only get you so far, and you need the right tool for the right job. Find critical items on the battlefields—like a bow, hookshot, and bombs—to defeat tricky enemies, solve puzzles, and access new places on the map.
Collect Rupees and other useful items to upgrade weapons and craft badges, which you can use to bolster each warrior’s abilities.
If the going gets tough, grab a friend to help you get through the story in a local 2-player co-op mode where, thanks to the Wii U GamePad controller, there’s no split screen in sight!
