Companion fairies were one of the additions included in Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS, and they’re returning in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition for Nintendo Switch, with a caveat.
Today Koei Tecmo released a large batch of screenshots showcasing the new look for the fairies, and liberated from the low-spec hardware of the 3DS, they’re rendered in full 3D.
Companion fairies can accompany the players in battle, and can still use fairy magic and rental skills. We see the salon where it’s possible to customize a fairy’s clothing and accessories, the school where you can select rental skills, and the dining room, where you can feed your fairy to improve her stats.
Another new element in the game is Tier 4+ weapons, which are the most powerful available in the game.
We also get to see a few of the stages and art for a few characters, Midna, Twili Midna, Agitha, Zant, and Toon Zelda.
You can check out all the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy the first character trailer of showing Link, Zelda, Impa, Lana, Linkle, Wizzro, Cia, and Volga, the second trailer featuring Sheik, Darunia, Ruto, Young Link, Tingle, Skull Kid, and Marin, and the third, focusing on Toon Link, Tetra, Medli, and King Daphnes.

Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition will launch in Japan on March 22nd, exclusively for Nintendo Switch, while western gamers will enjoy it sometime this spring.
