Update: Nintendo has updated the official Hyrule Warriors website with pricing information for the new DLC packs.

According to the site, Nintendo will be releasing three DLC packs for both the Wii U and 3DS versions of the game throughout the course of the year. Fans can purchase the Legends of Hyrule Season Pass to gain access to all three of these packs at a discounted price. The Season Pass will cost $9.99 for the Wii U version and $19.99 for both the 3DS and Wii U games.

The rest of the pricing information is as follows:

Link’s Awakening Pack – Summer

  • Wii U: $4.99
  • Wii U & 3DS: $9.99

Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks Pack – Autumn

  • Wii U: $4.99
  • Wii U & 3DS: $9.99

A Link Between Worlds Pack – Winter

  • Wii U: $4.99
  • Wii U & 3DS: $9.99

Wii U owners can also purchase the Legends Character Pack, as detailed below, for $12.99. The pack will be available to download this summer.


Original story: With the impending release of Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS, Nintendo UK has announced a second wave of downloadable content for the Zelda/Dynasty Warriors mashup, featuring characters and items from some of Link’s best portable adventures.

Beginning late spring, Nintendo will be rolling out four additional packs of DLC for both the 3DS and Wii U versions of Hyrule Warriors. The packs contain the following content:

Master Wind Waker Pack – Late Spring

  • 3DS only: 16 new My Fairy costume pieces
  • 3DS only: The “Master” Wind Waker map for Adventure Mode, with one new adventure battle scenario

Link’s Awakening Pack – Summer

  • New playable character
  • New weapon for Linkle
  • 3DS only: 16 new My Fairy costume pieces
  • 3DS only: One new map for Adventure Mode, with two new challenge battle scenarios

Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks Pack – Autumn

  • New playable character
  • New weapon for Toon Link
  • 3DS only: 15 new My Fairy costume pieces
  • 3DS only: One new map for Adventure Mode, with one new adventure battle and two new challenge battle scenarios

A Link Between Worlds Pack – Winter

  • Two new playable characters
  • 3DS only: 15 new My Fairy costumes
  • 3DS only: One new map for Adventure Mode, with one new adventure battle and two new challenge battle scenarios

In addition, players who have no intention of picking up Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS can still purchase a DLC pack of that game’s new characters– Skull Kid, Toon Link, King Hyrule, Tetra, and Linkle– for the Wii U version this summer. The characters will not be available for purchase individually and are not included in the games’ season pass.

As announced during the most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast, both the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game will also receive a bonus character, Medli, for free this spring.

North American pricing for the new DLC packs has not yet been announced, so stay tuned for more information as it rolls in. Are you excited for another round of Hyrule Warriors DLC? Are you planning on picking up Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS next week? Let us know in the comments!

    Just terrific. More fleecing of the flock. Gone are the days when you could just unlock extra characters or levels within the already shipped game. Brave New World.

      It’s really tiring seeing you complaining about everything. If you don’t like it, vote with your wallet by not buying it. Simple.

        That’s fine fanboy. Delete my account. I’m tired of blind faith anyway. I’m sick and tired as well of seeing people defend everything they do without question or concern. If that’s how you like your website, have at it. Sayonara.

          This doesn’t even dignify a response, but I’ll give one anyway just to illustrate how off the mark you are. We hardly ever blindly defend Nintendo; as a matter of fact, we’ve recently published two very critical articles about the company’s practices and decisions. The difference there is that both of the authors offered reasoned and detailed critiques, rather than simply whining about how everything was so much better in the good old days (as you seem to do with every post). So no, no one here is blind to any of Nintendo’s missteps, but we’re all discerning in our criticisms.

          But I’ll be happy to take you up on removing your account so that you can no longer pollute the comments with your constant negativity!

    Yeah, I’m with Kevin on this one. I myself won’t bother with the 3DS version because I already have it on WII U. But I think it’ll make a great portable game, and if you don’t have it already, try it out. But if you don’t, quitcha b!#@in and don’t buy it.

    I haven’t bought any Hyrule Warriors DLC before, but I think they’ve got me with the Link’s Awakening pack. I have a giant soft spot for that game and its characters. And even though I have the Wii U game already, I like the idea of a portable version so much I couldn’t help but pre-order.

    Nintendo games (well, their free-to-start stuff aside) have been fairly respectful in terms of not prodding to buy more content, but every reminder of real-world capitalism is a step taken out of these wonderful little worlds we Nintendo fans like to frequent. If that was the point dpw74 originally tried to make, I get it. Calling anyone here a blind fanboy is pretty silly though. Being a Nintendo fan is like being a Trekkie or anything else that requires a person to care – we take the bad with the good, and we celebrate while we grumble. :^)
