Nintendo of Europe showed a trailer for the new Hyrule Warriors Legends (and Hyrule Warriors) DLC for A Link Between Worlds Pack a few days ago. Now we have another video, this time in Japanese from Koei Tecmo. Watch it below.

Earlier in the week, we found out that the final DLC for Hyrule Warriors Legends (and the original Hyrule Warriors) is arriving on Monday. Nintendo has now sent out a trailer, which we have below.

The final round of Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC is now set to release next week on October 31. It will include two characters: Ravio, wielding a hammer, and Yuga, wielding a paintbrush. They will be available for both the Wii U and 3DS versions. The 3DS version will also include a new Adventure Map, which will have Ravio assisting the player, and 15 new costumes for My Fairy. The Adventure Map will also unlock more powerful weapons for the new characters and pre-existing characters, as well as new costumes.

The site also describes Ravio and Yuga’s fighting styles. Ravio will use a variety of weapons from his shop, including bombs, the boomerang, and the ice rod. Yuga will manipulate lightning and pictures.

The 3DS version will cost $6.99, the Wii U will cost $4.99, or you can buy both for $9.99. If you have the Season Pass, you will not need to pay anything more.
