The Palace of Twilight's layout takes many cues from the original dungeon in Twilight Princess, particularly in the exterior areas being partially divided into three vertical sections. In addition to including the outer portions of the palace and a heavily condensed version of the inner portions (most notably the King's Room Keep), the Palace's Hyrule Warriors incarnation adds a Fairy Fountain Keep in the southeastern region of the map.

With her victory in the battle at the Valley of Seers in "The Sorceress of the Valley", Cia had captured most of Hyrule and had claimed possession of the complete Triforce. Intoxicated by its power, she fell further under Ganondorf's influence. She opened the Gate of Souls by his urging, and with it created portals to three other Eras in Hyrule's history. From one of the portals, Cia began to sense a great power in the Era of Twilight. Intrigued, she set off to see whether it was be an ally that could be controlled, or an enemy to destroy. She traced its source to the Palace of Twilight, where Zant and Midna were both fighting.
