Free and Paid DLC for Hyrule Warriors to Include New Characters

Action TGS 2014 RPG Wii U Koei Tecmo Nintendo


Nintendo has well and truly jumped on the DLC bandwagon and the latest game to feature additional content will be the Zelda cross Dynasty Warriors action game, Hyrule Warriors. Three new DLC packs are being released which include brand new levels, new playable characters, new weapons, new costumes and even new game modes.

However if you are a bit short on money at the moment don’t stress, as good old Nintendo will be turning the games villains into playable characters via free DLC in patch 1.03! This patch will launch alongside the Hyrule Warriors Master Quest DLC pack on October 16 in Japan and Europe and include the option to turn off cutscenes as well as play as Cia, Volga and Wizzro. There has been no word on a U.S. release date for the patch yet.


All the details of the games packs for the Japanese market are below, but it has been confirmed that the DLC packs will also be making their way overseas by Nintendo’s Twitter accounts.
