Hyrule Warriors (Legends): last DLC pack out today (EU, JP, NA), includes Yuga and Ravio

Update: added Japanese trailer, to be found below! Also, updates are now out: click here for more details!

***

During the past few months, Nintendo and Koei-Tecmo have released several DLC packs for Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends. Unfortunately, it’s all coming to a end, as the very last DLC pack will be released in November… well, it was supposed to, as it’s now coming out on October 31st instead!

The pack will include two new characters from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (on Nintendo 3DS):

  • Ravio: he uses a hammer in battle (his main weapon), but also bombs, the boomerang, and the Ice Rod;
  • Yuga: he uses a cane to manipulate Lightning (which is his element). It looks like he can make a giant spear appear out of a portrait.

The new Adventure Map is based on Lorule, and will feature additional Heart Containers and Gold Skultulla, along with high-level weapons for Ravio and Yuga, new My Fairy clothing items/accessories, and new costumes. It looks like Maimai are to be found on this map, too.

Here’s a rundown of the contents of the last DLC pack, based on “A Link Between Worlds”:

  • Contents: 15 new My Fairy Costumes (3DS), 1 new map for Adventure Mode (Lorule, with one new adventure battle and two new challenge battle scenarios (3DS)), 2 new playable characters (Yuga and Ravio), 17 new costumes (3DS)
  • Release date: Winter (North America) / October 31st (Japan, Europe) (release will most likely be simultaneous, like all the previous DLC packs)
  • Price (3DS): £6.29 / €6.99 / 926 Yen + taxes / US$6.99 / CDN$9.89
  • Price (Wii U): £4.49 / €4.99 / 741 Yen + taxes / US$4.99 / CDN$7.09
  • Price (3DS + Wii U): £8.09 / €8.99 / 1 111 Yen + taxes / US$9.99 / CDN$14.09

Here’s some screenshots and artworks for the new playable characters, the new Adventure Map, the new costumes, and the new My Fairy accessories:

And here’s the trailers:
