Hyrule Warriors came to Nintendo 3DS a few months ago as Hyrule Warriors Legends, and during a Nintendo Direct it was announced that the game would be receiving four packs of DLC throughout the year, pieces of which would also come to the Wii U version. We got the first of these packs back in May, and now Nintendo has revealed that the second, based off The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, will be releasing on June 30th in Japan and Europe. In addition to the release date came a ton of details, images, and even a trailer for the new pack.

Marin is joining the battle, and as speculated she’ll be wielding the Sea Lily’s Bell, which looks to be a Water-attribute weapon that also summons the Wind Fish himself for some of her attacks. In addition, Linkle will also be receiving a new weapon: the Boots, a Lightning-attribute weapon that lets her unleash a devastating flurry of kicks to take enemies down. These new additions will be available for both Legends and the original Hyrule Warriors on Wii U.

The 3DS version will also get a few exclusive pieces of content from this pack, namely a new Adventure Map—based, of course, on Koholint Island, the isle where Link’s Awakening takes place—and some new outfits for the My Fairy feature. The Adventure Map will include new items, Skulltulas, and Heart Pieces, but it will also hold “Attribute +” weapons for other characters in the game. It’s unknown at present if these weapons will have unique designs or be more powerful than Rank 3 weapons, but they will feature two elemental attributes instead of the usual one.

This will all come with a free update to Legends that raises the level cap and adds new medals and Fairies to the game, as well as implements some bug fixes and adjustments to the characters.

While there’s no word yet on the North American release date, chances are good that it will launch on June 30th as well. Until we get confirmation of that, however, feel free to check out the new trailer above, as well as a plethora of images showing off the new content below! Will you be grabbing this DLC pack? Are you excited to see Marin join the fun, or to try out Linkle’s new weapon? Let us know in the comments!

Our Verdict


Tyler Meehan
Tyler is verbose. He apologizes for that. Tyler "Alpha" Meehan's first experiences with gaming came from his cousins' NES and the Mario games that went with it. They were fun, but merely brief distractions while on the road (yes, they had an NES in their car. It was awesome, and he was jealous). Still, nothing compared to his Star Wars books. OR SO HE THOUGHT. His love of gaming truly began when he and a friend came together to beat the Nintendo 64's Mission: Impossible, a challenge so intense that Tyler bought his own console to facilitate its defeat. Upon being introduced to Ocarina of Time (an introduction that included, among other spoilers, the freakin' final boss fight. GEEZ, PHILIP), his lot in life as a Nintendo fanboy was sealed in stone. His ability to recall absolutely useless video game information served him well during the Pokémon craze, and helped him aid numerous friends in their own endeavors to defeat games like Majora's Mask and Kingdom Hearts. Those were good days. Good days... The Zelda series soon became his primary obsession fascination, but additionally he was soon introduced to text-based RPGs by one of his schoolmates. Discovering that he had a knack for the English language and a strong love of telling stories, he started putting effort into writing his own storylines. That all got put onto the backburner, though, when he discovered the Zelda online community, particularly The Desert Colossus's Hyrule Adventures 2, an online text RPG based in the Zelda world. He joined under the pseudonym of "Alpha" and soon became one of their lead writers, going so far as to join the moderator staff and, in a year's time, become the head administrator of the RPG. During this time, Twilight Princess was released, and he joined several other TDCers in posting their thoughts on the game - his "Twilight Impression Posts" lasted for several months and were well received by the community. Staying on even after the webmaster was forced to retire, he continued to provide occasional news posts and articles for the site, until it became clear that the site was dying. He turned his focus back to Hyrule Adventures 2 and his college studies, until the latter forced him to stop work on the former. Tyler graduated a few years ago from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelors in Computer Science, and now serves as a software engineer for a rather large company that he doesn't feel like telling you all about (he's a jerk like that sometimes). His love of gaming and writing still strong, he joined the Zelda Informer staff in early 2013 to write a walkthrough for The Wind Waker, but later began using his English skills to become ZI and Gamnesia's first dedicated Copy Editor. When not trying to get Brian to shut up in Gamnesia's group chat, he spends his time writing Zelda fanfiction, planning some original fantasy stories that he may or may not try to publish some day, and playing games on his Wii, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo 3DS. He intends to get a WiiU sooner or later, probably around when Pikmin 3 comes out, but has little interest in the other consoles currently. Also, he can't stand writing bios in first-person. Talking about yourself like that is just...weird.
