Along with the new My Fairy system in Hyrule Warriors Legends, we have now learned that DLC maps in Adventure Mode from the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors will be available from the start in Legends for free. However, you will not be able to transfer them back to Hyrule Warriors on Wii U, preventing players who have not bought the maps on the Wii U eShop from obtaining them for free. The game will also include a never-before-seen map in Adventure Mode, a stage based on the Great Sea from The Wind Waker. It will contain various new items used to progress, and you’ll have the chance to win new costumes, both for old characters and newcomers to the game.

There’s quite a long list of items that will be included in the Wind Waker adventure map:

  • Wind Waker: removes Wind Walls, so you can pass through them.
  • Salvage Arm: you can use it to unlock new rewards.
  • Sea Map: when you use it, a Fishman appears and draws enemy locations on map (which unlocks new battles).
  • Cannon: destroys enemy ships, which removes disadvantageous rules from the battle.
  • Hero’s Bow: allows you to get rid of whirlpools, in order to remove disadvantageous rules from the battle.
  • Boomerang: you can use it to defeat Big Octos, in order to remove disadvantageous rules from the battle.
  • Hyoi Pear: just like in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, you can use it to lure seagulls. They will discover hidden treasures for you, which unlocks new rewards.
  • Power Bracelets: you can move Stone Heads with those, in order to unlock new battles.
  • Hammer: you can hit switches with it, in order to unlock new battles.
  • Deku Leaf: you can use it on a windmill in order to reveal hidden staircases, in order to unlock new rewards

Also, the Network Link feature from Hyrule Warriors is being replaced with a StreetPass-based system for the Nintendo 3DS. If your friend sends you a StreetPass Link, then you will get rewards for helping them.

Our Verdict

Darrin W. Harr II
Darrin W. Harr II started gaming at an early age. Even though he was born in one of the later generations of consoles, he started from the very beginning on his grandparents' NES. Playing games such as Wrecking Crew, Super Mario Bros., and Duck Hunt, Darrin spent countless hours of his childhood filled with the entertainment and joy these games brought him. In his later years, he took a big step up and started to familiarize himself with his uncle's Nintendo DS. It was then when he became obsessed with one of the best Game Boy titles of all time, Astro Boy: Omega Factor. After becoming stuck and very frustrated with the game, he pulled out a game cartridge from his uncle's DS bag. As Darrin read the inscription on the cartridge, clouds parted and sunlight shown through the window: the game was titled, "The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass." Darrin played this game to his heart's content, until one day, his grandmother bought him Spirit Tracks, the sequel to Phantom Hourglass. This was the first Zelda title that Darrin actually finished, and the Zelda title that transformed him into a member of the Zelda fanbase. It was then when he decided to play more Zelda games, such as Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword. In 2013, Darrin became fascinated with a website know as Zelda Informer. Reading their news coverage and in-depth editorials, Zelda Informer helped Darrin to realize that The Legend of Zelda series contains a vast amount of interesting lore. He needed to learn more. After reading numerous Zelda wiki articles and Zelda Informer editorials, Darrin eventually applied to the website, and was accepted around New Year 2015. He later joined Gamnesia in November 2015. Also, yes, Darrin wrote this in the third-person. Twitter: @realDern
