Update 3: Nintendo has confirmed that the Link’s Awakening Pack (and the Legends Character Pack) would also launch this Thursday in North America. Update 2: Nintendo just announced that the Link’s Awakening pack would also launch next week in Europe. We can therefore assume that North America will also get it on the same day. Check out the trailer below!
Update: we just added some screenshots for the DLC Pack: you will find them below!
***The Link’s Awakening Pack is the second pack of DLC for Hyrule Warriors Legends, and it will be launched next week in Japan (on June 30th). We can assume that Europe and North America will also get it on the same day (like they did for the first DLC pack), though as usual, we’re going to wait for an official announcement before updating our Release Planning.
Unlike the Master Wind Waker Pack, this new DLC pack will be available for both Hyrule Warriors (Wii U) and Hyrule Warriors Legends. However, the contents differ between the two games.
Here’s what the Link’s Awakening Pack contains:
1 new playable character: Marin, from The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. A bright young girl who longs for the world beyond the sea. She’s a pretty gifted singer, and everyone (including animals) love to hear her sing. She fights using bells, which can create shockwaves. It looks like she can summon the Wind Fish as part of her special attack.
1 new weapon for Linkle: Boots. This weapon has a lightning attribute, and it allows her to beat enemies with a barrage of kicks. It looks like she can grab a Cucco, fly a for a few moments, and then drop down on enemies with a brutal kick.
1 new map for Adventure Mode (with two new challenge battle scenarios): Koholint Island. This map features additional heart pieces, golden Skultullas, high level weapons for Marin (Bells) and Linkle (Boots), weapons, additional costumes, and My Fairy costume pieces. [3DS-only]
16 additional costumes (to be found in the Koholint Island map, in Adventure Mode) [3DS-only]
16 new My Fairy costume pieces (3DS) (to be found in the Koholint Island map, in Adventure Mode), including one based on Marine herself. [3DS-only]
Also, the Link’s Awakening Pack will introduce a new type of weapon, which is really powerful. Unlike the regular ones, this new type of weapons has two attributes. You will find “Attribute +” weapons on the Koholint Island map.
Head after the break for more details!
Here’s some additional details about the Link’s Awakening DLC Pack:
Release date: June 30th (Japan, Europe, North America)
Price (3DS): £6.29 / €6.99 / 926 Yen + taxes / US$6.99 / CDN$9.89 [included in the Season Pass]

Notes: if you haven’t purchased the Legends Character Pack (with the new characters from Hyrule Warriors Legends) for Wii U, but did purchase the Link’s Awakening Pack, you will get Linkle as a character, but she will only be able to use the Boots. If you also want to play with her using the Bow, you will need to purchase the Legends Character Pack.
One thing to note about the Link’s Awakening Pack is that you first need to download the latest update before being able to purchase it. This update will be released on the same day as the DLC Pack, and will bring the game to Ver. 1.4.0. on Nintendo 3DS.
Here’s the changelog:
Level cap raised
New medals added
New Fairies added
StreetPass Link: the amount of rupees you get as a reward will be adjusted
Various adjustements for several characters
Various bug fixes
The Wii U version will also need an update, but Koei-Tecmo hasn’t shared any patch notes yet. We will update this post as soon as we have them!
In the mean time, here’s details about the Legends Character Pack for Hyrule Warriors on Wii U, which will launch on the same day as the Link’s Awakening Pack:
