The Legend of Zelda: The Faceless Hero is a 3D title in the Legend of Zelda series developed and released for the Nintendo Switch by Nintendo.

This game, which is set hundreds of years after the events Twilight Princess, combines the moody color scheme of Twilight Princess with the simple shading and chibi style of Wind Waker to create a unique style that allows players to see Hyrule in a completely new and rather eerie way. Despite the style being similar to that of Wind Waker, though, character and monster appearances are completely unique. ReDeads, for example, are the classic withered and masked horrors from Ocarina of Time rather than the teal-skinned zombies from Wind Waker or the hulking sword-wielding mummies from Twilight Princess.

The Faceless Hero also brings back a few mechanics from previous Zelda titles, most notably the transformation masks from Majora's Mask. Additionally, item equipment is also similar to that of Zelda titles for the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance in that you can equip items to any of the buttons, and weapons and shields are classified as ordinary items rather than being delegated to a separate part of Link's inventory.

Story

The Beast King's War

Reawakening in the Heroes' Crypt

Forms

Form Description
Hylian A form resembling a blond-haired elfish boy, which Link takes when he dons the Hylian's Mask. Hylian Link's main draw is his impressive acrobatic ability, his fast attack speed, and his ability to carry a shield for extra defense in combat.
When equipped, Link's swords remain unchanged.
ReDead A form resembling a towering masked humanoid, which Link takes when he dons the ReDead's Mask. Though he is sluggish and vulnerable to flames in this shape, ReDead Link's greatsword attacks are powerful and cover an incredible amount of distance.
When equipped, Link's swords transform into the Ancient Greatsword.
Korok A form resembling a tiny wooden fairy, which Link takes when he dons the Korok's Mask.
When equipped, Link's swords transform into the Deku Leaf.
Goron A form resembling an rocky-skinned giant, which Link takes when he dons the Goron's Mask.
When equipped, Link's swords transform into the Mining Gloves.

Items

Item Description
Soldier's Sword An ancient sword that Link used during the Beast King's War, and the one that he was buried with following his defeat. The same magic that changes his shape also changes his sword when it is equipped, allowing him to technically wield the same weapon in all of his forms.
It is obtained at the very start of the Heroes' Crypt dungeon.
It can be used by Link's Hylian, ReDead, and Korok forms.
Poe's Lantern An enchanted lantern that was taken from the ghost of a vengeful grave-robber. The Poe's Lantern is able to not only illuminate the dark like previous Lanterns, but also dispel or reignite cursed blue flames that appear at certain points in the game.
It is obtained after defeating the Big Poe in the Heroes' Crypt dungeon.
It can be used by Link's Hylian, ReDead, and Korok forms.
Soldier's Shield A plain-looking shield that can guard easily against more basic attacks with little trouble. Unfortunately, due to it being made of plain wood, it can be burned up by enemies' fire attacks, leaving you defenseless.
It can be obtained in Kakariko Village, or purchased from certain shops.
It can be used by Link's Hylian form.
Fairy Bow A bow that was once used by Link's old friend Saria, received as a gift from her to help him on his adventure. Naturally, the Fairy Bow can be used to fire arrows to hit distant targets. The magic of the Korok's Mask can transform it into a slingshot.
It can be used by Link's Hylian and Korok forms.
Beamos Rod A strange-looking scepter topped with an eyeball-like gemstone. Holding it aloft allows Link to fire a laser beam out of it. The laser can cut through certain materials easily, or reflect off mirrors and refract through crystals to hit switches in hard-to-reach spots.
It is obtained in an undecided location.
It can be used by Link's ReDead and Goron forms.
Chopperblade A magical double-bladed weapon once used by a Korok warrior. By spinning it over his head, Link can generate whirlwinds around his body. He can glide through the air with it, too... until its spinning starts to slow down.
It is obtained in an undecided location.
It can be used by Link's Korok form.
Master Sword TBA!
It is obtained from an undecided location.
It can be used by Link's Hylian, ReDead, and Korok forms.

The first Bottle is obtained from an undecided location.
It can be used by Link's Hylian, ReDead, and Korok forms.
