Legend of Zelda: War in Hyrule (Japanese: ゼルダの伝説ハイラルの戦争, Zeruda no Densetsu: Hairaru no Sensou) is a real time strategy/war simulation game based off from the Legend of Zelda series. Following traditional RTS war simulation games, Legend of Zelda: War in Hyrule brings the Legend of Zelda into the plains of war. Take control of vast armies as they battle for the fate of Hyrule. Players can choose between two different types of forces: Forces of Hyrule and Forces of Darkness. However, there are various factions that fall within the two forces.

Storyline

The King of Hyrule has passed away and the Princess Zelda has mysteriously vanished from Hyrule. With Hyrule Castle and all her lands within arms reach, armies are poised to strike at her heart in order to claim the Triforce Throne. Vast armies within Hyrule are ready to clash shields to grab this seat for their own. However, a lone warrior clad in green has joined in the battle and, in an attempt to restore power, aims to unite the Forces of Hyrule together to repel the Forces of Darkness.

Gameplay

Legend of Zelda: War in Hyrule is similar in many aspects of other real-time strategy war simulation games such as Warcraft, Starcraft, Command & Conquer, Ages of Civilization, and Battle for Middle-earth though many aspects of Legend of Zelda are incorporated into the gameplay. Players can pick a faction to play as. The factions are as follows:

  • Hyrulian: Balanced gameplay with emphasis on building efficiency and command tactics.
  • Gorons: A strong faction with an emphasis on putting up as much damage as possible against enemies.
  • Zoras: Aquatic beings who grace the battlefield. Fast andeasily mobile; especially when there are areas of water.
  • Ganon: Demoic creatures under control of Ganon. They are wide and diverse ans emphasis on overwhelming enemy units with massive numbers.

At the start of every campaign mission or match, players are given a Base. Players only have one base per mission/match but can build keeps and outposts to expand their power and strength. Players can build buildings, walls, defensive posts, and units to increase their military might but there is a cap on how many units they can build.

There are four types of buildings that players can build:

  • Production: Production buildings produce/manufactures raw elements in order to create units, build buildings, and research.
  • Military: These buildings produce units for war and each faction's building is unique to them.
  • Domestic: Domestic buildings benefit the player in ways other than brute force. They are more focused on enhancing

the base they are at.

  • Defensive: Defensive buildings guard the Base, Keep, and Outpost and consists of guard towers, wall, and fortifications.

Certain buildings can only be build once in the Base, Keeps, or Outposts while others can be built in all three. Players can upgrade buildings and fortifications which unlocks new units, increases the defense stats of the buildings or attack stats of defense fortifications, or can add additional upgrades on buildings.

While each faction is unique to themselves with units reflecting this; there is a balance among all of the units. All factions have some sort of ground units, cavalry units, aerial units, siege weapons, special units, and hero units:

  • Ground forces are comprised of soldiers, archers, and other armed combatants. Examples include the Hyrulian Captain and the Kokiri Slingshotter.
  • Calvary Units includes mounted units that use close combat or ranged combat. Examples include: Zora Watersplasher or Bulbo Rider.
  • Aerial Units includes units that take to the air for either attack, espionage, or transportation. Some of them are mounted by others. Examples include: Twilit Assassin and the Peahat.
  • Siege weapons are constructions designed to launch devastation from afar or to quickly demolish defense fortifications, walls, and buildings. Examples include the Goron Catapult and the Frost Hammer.
  • Special Units are units that serve a particular purpose that is unique to that factions. Examples include the Sheikah Spymaster, Gerudo Sandmage, Great Deku Warrior, and Bomblings.
  • Hero Units are special characters that can only be recruited once at a time. Hero units are drawn from the Legend of Zelda universe. Examples include Link, Zelda, Ganondorf, Midna, and Saria.

Game Modes

There are several game modes available for players:

  • Campaign Mode: Campaign Mode follows the story with each campaign mission having unique mission settings. Players are unable to choose when faction they will play as but, rather, per-determined. After playing through the Campaign once, a new campaign mode called "The Quest for Evil" is unlocked which puts the player in control of the Forces of Darkness.
  • Free Mode: Allows for free matches between a computer player. Match settings can be adjusted prior to the match. 2-8 players can be chosen. These include the number of players, map setting, player factions, starting resources, time/score, and many others.
  • Multiplayer: Allows for a player to fight with a human player. One person plays on the TV while the other plays on the Gamepad. In addition, Campaign Co-Op also appears in this section as does Challenge Co-Op.
  • Online Multiplayer: Allows for up to 8 players to fight against each other on the online mode.
  • Challenges: Matches with a rather difficult or particular requirement to win.
