N3 DS Hyrule Warriors Legends Illustration 01

For some, the announcement of Hyrule Warriors Legends coming to the Nintendo 3DS is a great reason to relive/start the game that originated on the Wii U. However, to those needing more of an excuse, it was confirmed during Nintendo's E3 Digital Event that Hyrule Warriors Legends will come with all the DLC from the original title.

If the above incentives aren't enough, maybe the following is. In an interview with Famitsu, Hyrule Warriors Legends Producer Yosuke Hayashi spoke of even more characters from the Zelda universe being added to the fray:

I can't go into details yet, but we plan to add new character(s) [can mean one or several] other than Tetra and King of Hyrule. There are fan favorites and surprising characters in the game, so I'd be happy if you kept guessing who will join the fight while waiting for follow-up information.

Does this mean more Wind Waker characters, for example Medli? Or perhaps other forgotten staples such as Saria, Nabooru, or Vaati? Only time will tell, so let us know your thoughts of who you want as a playable character in the interim!
