Hyrule Warriors Legends

Following today’s news for Japan, we now have confirmation that Hyrule Warriors Legends (and Hyrule Warriors) will be adding the Link’s Awakening Pack on June 30. It’s almost certain that North America will have it on the same day as well.

Nintendo has also shared a new trailer, posted below:


Thanks to Brian for the tip.

Earlier today we reported on the upcoming new DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors Legends. We now have some more concrete info thanks to a translation of the game’s official website by Perfectly Nintendo.

Marin is the big new feature of this DLC pack, being a brand new character. She fights using the Sea Lily’s Bell from Link’s Awakening, which she uses to create shockwaves. She can also summon the Windfish as part of her special attack.

As was previously announced, fan favorite Linkle gets a new weapon, being the Pegasus Boots. They have the lightning attribute and allow Linkle to pummel enemies with a flurry of kicks. She will also get help from her loyal cuccos when using this weapon.

This DLC also features a new Adventure mode map, unsurprisingly based on Koholint Island from Link’s Awakening. Besides the expected (all weapon ranks for Marin’s bell and Linkle’s boots, new My Fairy costumes, Skulltulas and Heart Pieces) this map will also feature Rank 4+ weapons for the other characters. It’s currently not know if these are new designs (unlikely) or if they will be more powerful – they will, however, have two elemental attributes instead of one.

16 new costumes each for the characters and for My Fairy will also be included

Other than some minor bug fixes and additions of new medals and such, an updated that will be released (for free) alongside the DLC pack will also raise the level cap of all characters.

Along with the update on the Link’s Awakening DLC, the Hyrule Warriors Legends website features a host of images from the pack, including Marin, Linkle’s new weapon (the Pegasus Boots), and the new adventure map. You can view those below.

Koei Tecmo has announced that the next round of DLC for Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors Legends will be releasing on June 30th. The announcement is only currently for Japan, but will hopefully be available in all territories. The pack will include Marin as a playable character and a new weapon, the Pegasus Boots, for Linkle on both versions, while the 3DS version will also get a new Adventure map and costumes for the My Fairy feature.

The DLC will cost $6.99 for the 3DS version, $4.99 for the Wii U version, and $9.99 for both. Furthermore, Wii U owners will now be able to pick up two more DLC options. First is the season pass for $9.99 (which will give Wii U owners the Link’s Awakening DLC and the future two packs). Second is the Legends Character pack for $12.99, which gives all the Legends-only characters and weapons.

Update: Bumped to the top. Nintendo has now confirmed the same date for Europe, so the DLC should be out at the same time worldwide.



Koei Tecmo have just released a trailer for the first DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors Legends. The trailer shows off Medli, the new Adventure Mode map, which is the “Master Quest” version of the Great Sea map found in the base game, and several new outfits for both characters and My Fairy. In Japan, the DLC pack is being released next week, on May 19th. A Western release date has not yet been confirmed, though a release on the same date seems likely. We will keep you updated.

Earlier this evening, the NPD Group issued the monthly U.S. chart for game sales in March. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Pokken Tournament both made the list, coming in at the third and seventh positions respectively. But how much did each game sell?

Based on the usual leaks, it looks like Twilight Princess HD sold about 308,000 copies. Pokken Tournament also did quite well with roughly 251,000 units moved.

We have some data on the 3DS side of things as well. Hyrule Warriors Legends is said to have sold about 72,000 copies. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which also launched last month, sold 25,000 copies or so.
