Game Overview

Hyrule Warriors is a collaboration between Nintendo and Tecmo Koei, which fuses elements from the iconic The Legend of Zelda and Dynasty Warriors franchises to create a hack-and-slash action game based in the land of Hyrule.

After Princess Zelda is reported to be missing after a major attack on Hyrule Castle by Wizro and Volga, Link and Impa must set off to locate her before it is too late. After encountering a mysterious woman named Shiek, the three continue their search after she informs them of another woman leading a rebelious force against the evil forces of Wizro. The three continue their journey, locating and making new allies along the way, trying to find and save the princess from certain doom.

@KyleeStrutt But seriously when does
Sakurai ever make games that aren't
Nintendo? He might be officially
independent, but he rarely ever makes
games for other companies.

Sora isn't second party, its completely
independent, also it wasn't the main
developer, Sora has only one employee,
Masahiro Sakurai, so no the mayority of
the game was developed by Bamco.
so, the game was a collaboration between
2 third parties, so by your definition
Smash WiiU is a third party game.

@KyleeStrutt It was developed mainly by
Sora, however Bandai Namco was a part of
it. Sora is a second party dev, so
basically first. Smash is a game I would
say is considered first party.

If that's the case then Smash WiiU is a
third party game as Bamco made

There's already a third party
game to sell over 1m on WiiU!

@KyleeStrutt Yes, it actually is a third
party game. It is not made by Nintendo,
therefore, not first party. A game which
is MADE by Nintendo makes it first
party, however, Hyrule Warriors was MADE
by Koei Tecmo, which is an individual
third party company. Just because
Nintendo publishes it, it doesn't make
it first party.
