Hyrule Warriors has delivered plenty of DLC, but those that picked up the Season Pass will have observed that only one more major pack is included in the deal. It's been listed as 'Boss Pack' with no further details, but confirmation of the Japanese release of this DLC next week has also brought further details on what we can expect.

In Japan, at least, it'll be known as the 'Ganon Pack' and has the following content.

Boss Challenge - Battle against huge demon beasts and aim for the high score in this additional mode. For every battle, you can leave a record with each character. As a reward, you can acquire costumes for Link, Zelda, and Lana.

Ganon Play - Control the demonic beast Ganon and aim for the high score in this additional mode. With his excessively large stature, he can destroy the battlefield and take out hordes of enemies like never before seen. You can leave a record for every battle. As a reward, you can acquire costumes for Ganondorf and Cia.

These'll be additional modes, of course, but the idea of charging around the battlefield as the sizeable beast Ganon is certainly tempting.

As with other major DLC arrivals there'll also be an accompanying update: version 1.6.0 will have the following improvements:

  • Max level raised
  • New mixture potions added
  • New medals added
  • Challenge mode expanded
  • Score recording function added
  • Challenge scenarios added
  • Bug that extends load times when entering battles fixed

This DLC is due in Japan next week, so there are reasonable odds on an equivalent date in the West or just a short delay to the end of the month.

Do you like the sound of this Ganon Pack content? If you check out the images you just might.


Thanks to Ryan Millar for the heads up.
