[Europe] Hyrule Warriors Legends: upcoming DLC detailed, 3DS characters coming to Wii U

Update

The planning and pricing for Japan can be found there!

Hyrule Warriors LegendsEarlier this month, during the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo revealed that Hyrule Warriors Legends would also get some DLC (just like the Wii U version did back in 2014). There will even be a Season Pass, for players who want to buy everything at once, and avoid buying things separately (which will also be cheaper).

The DLC will add some new characters, weapons, Adventure Mode maps and more to the game, and even the Wii U version is getting some. And as mentioned during the Nintendo Direct, players buying the Season Pass will get an exclusive costume for Ganondorf, based on The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker (available right away). Also, Medli will be added for free to both versions of the game when the first DLC pack launches.

Season Pass

First, here’s the details about the various options for the Season Pass, called “Legends of Hyrule Pack Season Pass”:

  • Nintendo 3DS Only Season Pass: DLC for Hyrule Warriors: Legends on Nintendo 3DS only [available on March 24th, 2016]
  • Nintendo 3DS + Wii U Season Pass: DLC for both Hyrule Warriors: Legends on Nintendo 3DS and Hyrule Warriors on Wii U [available on March 24th, 2016]
  • Wii U Only Season Pass: DLC for Hyrule Warriors on Wii U only [available this Summer]
