The game has been confirmed for release on May 4.
Hyrule Warriors originally came to Wii U in 2014. New costumes themed around Breath of the Wild are also included.
Nintendo have dipping back into their box labelled "Great Wii U games that nobody played because nobody had a Wii U" and pulled out Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze! Later, Nintendo released Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS, which featured additional characters from portable characters like Spirit Tracks and A Link Between Worlds. Specifically, a new mode featuring Funky Kong will be available as a new "beginner-friendly mode" where players can hover, perform infinite rolls and underwater corkscrews, double jump, and more to make the game more approachable for new players.
There's not a ton of detail as of now, but the Switch version will feature co-op via Joy-Cons for the entire adventure and this mode will feature Funky Kong.
In addition to new DLC, one of the big focuses of the Direct was more revamped Nintendo Switch versions of old favorites.
"That exceedingly clever level design never fails to be interesting; a constant introduction of new elements and challenging set-pieces keeps it fresh and interesting throughout - and that's despite the fact that if you've played Donkey Kong Country Returns on the Wii, you've pretty much played this before".
