Switchaboo Pick of the Week

Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition!

We tried to consider a different game than a Wii U/3DS port, but Hyrule Warriors is just such a stellar game with hundreds of hours of content hidden within.

The Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is truly the version to get for any Legend of Zelda fan. This game pays homage to so many classic Legend of Zelda games, and it’s so heartwarming to see classic Game Boy version characters fight it out in Full HD.
