All characters and features appear to be successfully ported over, in addition to featuring two new characters: Tetra and the King of Hyrule. Both of whom hail from the GameCube and Wii U series entry, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. Both characters can seemingly be transferred back to the Wii U edition of the player owns both games. A new feature shown in the video also reveals the ability to switch between characters in real time, allowing the player to control multiple heroes throughout the battlefield.

Judging from the video, the 3DS edition of the game does not appear to be exclusive to Nintendo’s New 3DS version of the console. And while few details are known about the port, the crowds of enemies shown in the video appear to be considerably smaller than those seen on the Wii U.
Released in 2014 and developed by a Omega Force and Team Ninja, and published by Nintendo in the west, Hyrule Warriors took The Legend of Zelda franchise and married it with gameplay styled after the Dynasty Warriors series of games. In it, players can choose from a variety of characters from the Zelda series to fight on large battlefields against vast hordes of enemies using a numbers of iconic attacks and items pulled from different entries of the series.
