"Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition" is scheduled to launch in spring, and comes with all the paid downloadable content from the original release, plus a couple of new characters from Nintendo's most recent Zelda game for the Switch, "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild".

The groovy surfer known as Funky Kong can double jump, hover, perform infinite rolls and even perform infinite underwater corkscrews.

Retro Studio's take on Donkey Kong also gets the same treatment.
