Hyrule Warriors Gets Twilight Princess Costume DLC in Japan

on June 27, 2014 7:31 AM

With a unique mix of Dynasty Warriors‘ fast-paced combat and elements from the world of The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo’s Wii U-exclusive Hyrule Warriors is set to be unlike any other Zelda game before it, and for those in Japan some additional costumes from Zelda games of the past will be even more enticing.

New details have been announced for Hyrule Warriors that the Japanese release of the game will be receiving new DLC costumes based on 2006’s The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. Specifically, the costumes will be available as part of the three editions of the game releasing in Japan: the Standard, Premium, and Treasure Box editions.

Outfits for Link, Princess Zelda, and an unknown third character have been confirmed so far, with all coming from their iterations in Twilight Princess and available in specific editions of the game. Link’s costume will be part of the “Courage” costume set in the Standard Edition, and Zelda’s will be available in the “Wisdom” set of the Premium Edition. Details haven’t shown yet whether the costumes will be available for separate purchase as DLC, though it should seem fairly likely.

Hyrule Warriors releases exclusively for Wii U on August 14th, 2014 in Japan, followed by a release on September 26th, 2014 for the US – in the meantime, you can check out screenshots below of Link and Zelda’s Twilight Princess-inspired costumes for the upcoming game:
