Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition is the latest adventure featuring our favourite Link and Zelda. You'll battle across the face of Hyrule alongside popular returning characters from the franchise. Ever wished you could get a taste of what it's like to be Ganondorf? This is your chance.

Those who first experienced The Legend of Zelda on Switch (don't be ashamed – we have to start somewhere) will probably be a little confused by Link donning a green outfit. This is Link's traditional outfit he's worn since the original on the NES, which was shifted to a blue number in Breath of the Wild.

Similarly, Zelda is more like a traditional princess in this iteration, wearing a flowing dress. That's a far cry away from the battle-ready version we're more recently accustomed to. Fear not though, for Link and Zelda can still take their Breath of the Wild forms in Hyrule Warriors. 

In this guide, we're going to show you how to equip it so you can carry on your adventures in style.

How to play as Breath of the Wild Link and Zelda in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition

Fortunately for you, it's surprisingly easy to unlock Link and Zelda's appearance from Breath of the Wild. First, you have to unlock these characters as playable characters. You'll get Link after completing the first mission, but you'll have to wait until much later in the game to unlock Zelda.

Once unlocked, you can select their Breath of the Wild costumes just before you enter a mission. Select a mission, hover over Link or Zelda when selecting the heroes to bring with you, and press 'X to change costume. In the next screen, you'll find an option to switch to the Breath of the Wild costume. Simple as that!
