Hyrule Warriors is a fast-paced hack and slash game set 100 years before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Part of the fun is getting to play as not only Link, but Princess Zelda, Impa, and the four champions.
While a lot of the game is fun and intuitive, there are certain nuances that are easy to forget. Also, because it's so quick-moving, it can be easy to lose track of your health meter.
The player picks up health items along the way, usually after defeating a mini-boss, but in order to heal, something specific needs to be done.
To heal, hold down the L shoulder button. This will bring up a menu where you can use special items, like rods you've collected from defeated Wizzrobes.
From there, simply press B to use a health item and restore hearts. Remember to keep an eye on your level, and also look around the map whenever possible during battle to replenish your supply of healing items.
Should Zelda fans pick up Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, or is it a forgettable hack-and-slash game that can be skipped?
