Nintendo UK has released a ton of info on the DLC/Season Pass for the upcoming Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Starting on March 24th, players can order the Season Pass in two forms: one gives all the DLC to the 3DS version of the game, while the other is for both the 3DS and Wii U versions. Starting in the Summer, players can get the Season Pass for just the Wii U version.

The first pack, the “Master Wind Waker” pack will be made available in Late Spring and will only be available for the 3DS game. It will provide 16 new costumes for the “My Fairy” mode and will give a new Adventure map. This pack will cost £1.79/€1,99.

The second pack, “Link’s Awakening”, will arrive in the Summer. For both versions, it will add in a new playable character and a new weapon for Linkle. The 3DS version will also get a new Adventure Map and more costumes for My Fairy. It will cost £6.29/€6,99 for the 3DS version, £4.49/€4,99 for the Wii U version, or £8.09/€8,99 for both.

The third pack is based on Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks and will arrive in the Fall. It will contain a new playable character and a new weapon for Toon Link in both versions, and the 3DS version will get 15 more Fairy costumes and a new Adventure Map. It will cost £6.29/€6,99 for the 3DS version, £4.49/€4,99 for the Wii U version, or £8.09/€8,99 for both.

The fourth and final pack is the “Link Between Worlds” pack , set to release in the Winter. Both the Wii U and 3DS versions will get two new playable characters, and the 3DS version will get 15 Fairy costumes and an Adventure Map. Like the previous two packs, it will cost £6.29/€6,99 for the 3DS version, £4.49/€4,99 for the Wii U version, or £8.09/€8,99 for both.

The Season Passes will cost £13.49/€14,99 for the 3DS version, £8.99/€9,99 for the Wii U, and £15.29/€16,99 for both. Not only do these save money over buying each pack individually, but they also come with a Wind Waker Ganondorf costume.

In addition to all of these, there will also be a Legends Character pack for the Wii U, priced at £10.79/€11.99. It will release in the Summer and contains all of the characters from Legends, as well as Ganondorf’s Trident weapon. The site notes that this is not included in either Season Pass. Also, while Toon Link and Linkle are downloadable through other DLC packs, they will only be able to use the weapons that come in those packs pm the Wii U unless they are unlocked through the Legends Character pack or via codes from Hyrule Warriors Legends.

Additionally, Medli from the Wind Waker will be a free download for both versions of the game. She will release alongside the “Master Wind Waker” pack.


Nintendo of Europe produced a new Hyrule Warriors Legends trailer showing off the game’s amiibo support. You can view it below.

You may remember a Hyrule Warriors Legends pre-order bonus we posted about a few weeks back. It was revealed that those who reserved the game in Italy would receive two unique costumes for use in the My Fairy mode. We now have some news for the UK as well.

For those in the UK, if you pre-order the Hyrule Warriors Legends Limited Edition at GAME, you’ll be given the same exact bonuses (pictured above). Just keep in mind that this offer doesn’t apply to the standard version of the game.


Two upcoming 3DS games can now be pre-loaded from the North American 3DS eShop: Hyrule Warriors Legends and Bravely Second. Those who are interested in either game can purchase them now and download most of the required data. Then at launch, only a small update will be needed to begin playing.

Hyrule Warriors Legends is slated for March 25. Bravely Second launches a few weeks later – April 15.

Koei Tecmo will be pushing out a new Hyrule Warriors update in Japan later this month. After applying the patch, the game will be increased to version 1.2.0.

Here’s what’s included:

– Fixes a glitch with skill rental, in which the counter would not decrease after using it
– Fixes a glitch which slows down the player after being hit by an enemy
