1. All DLC/Update/Legends characters. The original Hyrule Warriors for wii u had 13 characters. This version has 29 (Not including Ganon and Cuccoo).
2. You can now change characters mid battle and command other character to go places. You have between 1-4 people you bring into battle and easily cycle in between them. (This was originally introduced in Legends)
4. You can now use the Ocarina the warp to certain Owl Statues around the map. (Originally introduced in Legends)
5. During giant boss fights you gain boosts by bringing you other characters near the battle. (Originally introduced in Legends)
6. Apart from the main story, there are now Linkles Story, Cias Story, and Windwaker Story. (From DLC and Legends)
7. Challenge Mode and Ganons Fury (where you play as a huge Ganon) are included. (Originally from DLC, they were not in Legends)
8. Tons of new costumes and weapons from past updates, DLC, Legends.
9. There are 9 adventure maps now (not including the rewards map from skultullas)
10. My Fairy is a new system where you can create and dress your own fairy to help you in battle. (Originally introduced in Legends)
11. Adventure Mode now has a store where you can buy items instead of grinding for them.
12. All non-story characters must be unlocked through adventure mode maps. Same with all weapons and costumes. (All of this was originally just given to you in DLC. It would be automatically unlocked)
13. 2 player is now split-screen
14. Various changes to certain menus to include more info. For example: Adventure Mode maps now have a difficulty rating and percentage complete. Skill trees now have a percentage complete. Ect.
15. Framerate and Graphical upgrades/ more people on screen at once
The only areas where this doesn't quite live up to the Wii U version is the omission of online connectivity on the Adventure Mode (no more "Network Links," yes...that is a pun). While this isn't a deal breaker, and the game finds other ways to get your challenge and rare items in, I do miss seeing them and the challenge of playing on a stage with a higher level "Network Link." Another change for the worse (versus the Wii U version) is that two player games come via splitscreen. Now the splitscreen is fine, and works as well as it does in Fire Emblem Warriors (and better than it does in a lot of the older Musou games), but if you played the original release on the Wii U, where one player plays on the fullscreen TV and the other on the screen of the Wii U Controller (something you simply cannot do on the Switch), then it is a step-down.
New in this version (at least to those who originally played on the Wii U) is the previously 3DS-only My Fairy mode, while allows you to find fairies on the battle maps and then feed, dress and generally level them up. How you feed and dress your fairy will impact your stats in some way, depending on how it is equipped and what level the fairy has attained. This is a nice touch, and my girls absolutely love it. Daddy just wishes there were some facial hair options, but he'll get over it (there's always Tingle).
Also new is the inclusion of new Breath of the Wild costumes in this version. It's a cool inclusion, and the other players in the household seem to enjoy them, although this player will always go with the Classic "Excuse me Princess" tunic.
Ultimately, if you've never played Hyrule Warriors before, then this is a must buy. If you're done with Fire Emblem Warriors and want another Musou fix on the Switch, then this is a must-buy. If you want to play Hyrule Warriors on the go, with all of the DLC, but have only ever played the Wii U version, then again, this is a must buy. I'm not all that crazy about how Nintendo has basically rereleased all of the top-tier Wii U titles on the Switch, but most of the games, like this one, are standouts. Hyrule Warriors was one of my favorite games on the Wii U, and now it's one of my favorites on the Switch. It's good to see it on a platform where it will get its due.
That said, the game still feels like you're playing it on a Wii U console instead of the Switch, and there are no options, like on Fire Emblem Warriors, to choose for faster framerate, or a more abundant gameplay. Never the less, if you loved Hyrule Warriors on Wii U, want to play it for the first time, or love the Warriors style of games, then I highly recommend you get this game.
