The Hyrule Warriors Majora’s Mask Pack is now live for players in Japan. Users can download the 1.5.0 update, too. Check out a trailer for the Majora’s Mask Pack above.


People have been poking around the Hyrule Warriors’ 1.5.0 update files – specifically the Majora’s Mask DLC. Thanks to that, we can now listen to three new tracks that are featured in the Majora’s Mask Adventure Map. You’ll also find random asset images below.


Hyrule Warriors has done quite well overseas – the United States in particular. Take a look at some data compiled by NeoGAF’s “ZhugeEX” that compares sales of Hyrule Warriors to other Warriors entries in the states:


Since Japan is important, here’s a look at how Hyrule Warriors stacks up to other Musou entries:

This week’s Nintendo Direct showed a good portion of what’s included in the Hyrule Warriors Majora’s Mask Pack. We got a look at new playable characters and the new Adventure mode map. Additionally, new costumes were teased through silhouettes.

Now we know for sure just what those costumes are. Lana is receiving a new Skull Kid outfit, while there will be new Ocarina of Time outfits for Impa and Sheik respectively.

Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma took to Miiverse last night and posted a new message about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D and Hyrule Warriors. View it below.

Technobubble published an interview with Zelda director/producer Eiji Aonuma and Koei Tecmo producer Yosuke Hayashi before the launch of Hyrule Warriors last year. While it’s a few months old, the discussion contains several noteworthy comments and we wanted to share those with you.

We hear, for example, that Tingle was considered for Hyrule Warriors as a playable character, but Aonuma advised the team against including him. Aonuma commented on the possibility of other Nintendo franchises seeing crossovers with the Zelda series, noted how he’s interested in applying what Hyrule Warriors did with bosses that move across the map for Zelda Wii U, and touched on Zelda remakes. On Hayashi’s side, he spoke about the possibility of Hyrule Warriors 2 and a few other topics.

Head past the break for several excerpts from the interview.

We’ve posted shots from the Hyrule Warriors art book before, but Destructoid has picked out design that looks particularly interesting. It’s not entirely clear what’s going on, though it seems like Link is cutting off a Bulblin’s arm. The woman in the design was featured in at least one more piece of finished art.
