Hyrule Warriors Legends on 3DS has been out a little while, settling down while early adopters rank up the character levels and access the many, many weapons. Koei Tecmo and Nintendo are now gearing up to kick off the cycle of DLC, however, and Nintendo of Europe has confirmed a release date for the first pack.
First of all, if you need a crash course on the rather fiddly (arguably messy) structure for the Hyrule Warriors / Legends season passes and upcoming packs, check out the following articles.
- North American Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC Pricing and Details
- European Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC Pricing and Details
The first pack is 3DS-only - the 'Master Wind Waker Pack' is coming on 19th May and includes 16 new My Fairy Costume pieces, and more importantly the "Master Wind Waker map for Adventure Mode with one new adventure battle scenario". It's by far the cheapest of the packs (as it has no playable character) with a price tag of US$0.99 / CDN$1.39 in North America or £1.79 / €1,99 in Europe. Or you'll get it as part of a Season Pass, which are outlined in their multiple forms in the articles above.
Nevertheless those not paying for DLC will get Medli for free, as promised (and shown at the top of this article) - this applies to the Wii U original and the 3DS version; you'll get the playable character when you update the game(s).
You can see a trailer for this DLC below. Let us know if you're grabbing the Wind Waker pack on 3DS, or perhaps just planning to grab the free Medli character.
I was just googling for this information yesterday and couldn't find an answer. Very timely NintendoLife.
I'll get Medli and would get the rest of the DLC... if Nintendo hadn't decided to screw over Wii U owners.
Is the 19th confirmed for North America as well?
@RainbowGazelle I feel dumb for buying the season pass on Wii U, but not making much progress in Adventure mode, but at least I'm more invested in Legends; I'm just wrapping up the Wind Waker map.
@majinx07 I hope so.
Wow that's very soon! Nice
Day 612: Hyrule Warriors still getting free DLC.
Who needs weapons, when you can send enemies flying with just a flick of your wrist? Medli's more terrifying than I ever knew.
$0.99 and £1.79
So with the exchange rate UK customers are effectively paying nearly $3 for the same content.
I just wish this update doesnt come with a level cap increase. I love the balance they did in this game so that LV99 is playable for everything. I don't want to have to grind to even have the chance to play some new content (like the Link's Awakening map, which is what I'm waiting for the most). It will literraly kills all my motivation in this game, and I think I will just put it aside. I'm not even done with the Master Quest map yet, so I don't want to think that there's an extra 156 Level of grinding for EVERY CHARACTERS waiting in the wing.
More gameplay, less grinding please!
@Drac_Mazoku Pretty sure there's nothing confirming a level cap increase so you'll just have to wait to find out.
And the Wii U DLC when??
So am I correct in thinking that the Wii U version is NOT getting any of the new adventure mode maps? I hope that's not the case....
Well, I'm glad they've made it simple and easy to understand.
Got the season pass, so it's only to download this next weeek.
I'll wait for the Wii U pack
Cant wait to start bashing hordes of enemies using Toon Links Grandmother on Wii U.
0.99 US Dollars and 1.99 Euros is quite a discrepancy, really. Granted it's a low price anyway, but still.
@DoctorWily We're not getting the Legends exclusive maps, however there's a growing rumour that the Wii U version will get OoT and Skyward Sword adventure mode maps complete with new characters and unlockables for the legends characters in the Wii U version of the game.
still a tough decision for me. i mean i already have a wii u and can get the game and the new content but i can also spend $300 for a 5 year old system for one game with a ton of content. decisions, decisions. i'll make up my mind after e3, i'd like to know if monster hunter stories will make it state side.
@Neko_Ichigofan really now???? hmmmm....
@RodSD64 i still get the feeling this game will be ported to nx with all 3ds content...
@Neko_Ichigofan OoT is the other rumoured one? I saw about Skyward Sword in the forums thread but no clarity on the other.
@Drac_Mazoku Especially since they've added additional forms of grinding, the fairies and whatnot.
I'm actually waiting to see if there's a level cap increase or not before I purchase the game. I already did that nonsense on the Wii U, once is enough.
@Zebetite Add to that the new 3DS characters, and the new DLC ones coming. Imagine grinding them all to 255, without any rupee glitch? Really, if they ask us for higher Level than 99 to access the new DLC contents, I'm really quitting this game.
Well while I was reading about the new 3ds xl out of the blue my wife announced she wants one with Pokemon sun! Looks like we both will need one! Hyrule warriors legends here I come! Woo hoo!
@Neko_Ichigofan Well that's good news if it's true. Still, I want that Great Sea map.
I never beat this on Wii U. Guess I'll have to get back to it
I hope Nintendo is in talks for a sequel or another spin off because this has really been the game that keeps on giving. After this much content (even with the confusion between the wiiu and 3ds versions) I'd buy HW2 or Nintendo Franchise ___ Warriors day one, no hesitation.
I really need to get back into playing Hyrule Warriors Legends. I bought the original WiiU season pass. Its a somewhat evergreen game. I can pick up and play it just about any time. There are just too many games to play. I'm busy with Battleborn on my X1, and I still need to get ready for the Far Harbor Fallout 4 DLC. Bah! Too much to play!
@pa261639 Me either. I played a few quests here and there, and still haven't completed the adventure map the game comes with.
I feel like you had to have played this game a lot to have gone through the original adventure mode and all the DLC. I was more of a 3-6 quests a week type of guy because while the game is fun, it gets too repetitive for prolonged sessions. No interest in Legends as the Wii U version looks way better.
@DekuOnion as someone who owns both games, I'd say the 3DS version is quite superior in basically every way except graphics.
Anyway, you certainly don't need to have both. Deep inside they're the same game.
@Meowpheel multiplayer and graphics makes Wiiu superior
Will be getting my Medli, she looks like a fun character.
@Lady_rosalina that's ok if that's what you're looking for.
@Meowpheel For a Warriors game, not being able to render as many enemies on screen is a huge down grade for me.
@DekuOnion it hasn't really affected the experience for me. At least on my n3ds the enemies are plentiful.
The fairy magic also helps, specially with those annoying "kill x enemies in time". I honestly can't do those on the WiiU when they go beyond 500.
From what I hear, even on the original 3ds the minor enemies are still there even if you can't see them.
@Meowpheel The Wii U version can't even load all the enemies at the same time. I would love to see this game without the on-screen cap. Not sure if the invisible minion thing is common in most other Warrior games or not. The only other "Warriors" game I own is Mystic Heroes for the GCN.
@DekuOnion apparently, the WiiU version tries so hard to make the battlefield look full it actually renders more enemies than necessary (large chunks of enemies too far away to be even targets). Which is why it tends to lag at times.
I assume the effective amount of revelant minions on-screen is not that different compared to the n3DS version
