Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors’ Boss Pack has finally arrived in North America. This is the final piece of downloadable content for the title. It’s free to those who purchased all of the DLC as the bundle, and it regularly costs $2.99.

Sales of the Dynasty Warriors games have been in a bit of a decline. The series isn’t performing quite as well as it used to.

However, according to Koei Tecmo producer Akihiro Suzuki, spin-offs like Hyrule Warriors renewed interest in the franchise. Koei Tecmo must now satisfy players while keeping the series fresh, he said.

Suzuki told MCV:

Over the years we’ve seen a sales decline. The Dynasty Warriors series is targeted towards the core fans. But we’ve had a few collaborations recently that have given the franchise a second wind because they’ve brought in new fans that hadn’t given Dynasty Warriors a chance. So Hyrule Warriors gave the series some freshness. Now our task is to keep the new players happy now that they’ve had a chance to play. But overall with the franchise, we need to keep it fresh, both the Dynasty Warriors and the Samurai Warriors brands.
