Yesterday, Hyrule Warriors received another DLC and major update. In this post I want to briefly cover the new update, the older updates, and (not so briefly) share with you my experience of the game since I first posted about it.

It seems that every version update of the game has been released along with a DLC. Each DLC, or version update, has increased the maximum level that characters can reach. I think this level was originally 50, then 100, then 150, and now 200. The DLC usually includes new a new map for Adventure Mode, which also adds 20 extra Gold Skulltulas to find. Sometimes they also contain new weapons and costumes.

The Master Quest Pack added Epona as a... Read All

When Hyrule Warriors came out months again, I noticed that there were a few DLC packs available, so I purchased all of them. I was also able to get some of the DLC for free by registering the game at Club Nintendo. Some of the content includes different costume sets for various characters, one of which is a Dark Link costume for Link.

It seems as though some of the DLC wasn't available right away. I don't know if it was released at a later date or I had to accomplish some in-game goals to unlock them.

At E3 this year, only months ago, Nintendo showed off some new games to look forward to. When it comes to E3, I pretty much always watch the Nintendo press conference and more videos about whatever they are showing off, ignoring everything else. This year's E3 wasn't really that different from other years, meaning that Nintendo got me really excited again.

Nintendo dropped a new trailer for the upcoming Zelda game Hyrule Warriors recently. Not a lot is known about the game but we can glean a few things from the video. First off it looks like you can swing your sword at bad guys. Secondly, it looks like you can attack many bad guys at once.

Seriously though, the game play does look great and I imagine because of the increased horse power of the Wii U they can make a Zelda game with a ton more enemies on the screen.

What do you think of Hyrule Warriors? With every new game it seems the reason to pickup a Wii U is more compelling as Nintendo is really hitting a segment of gaming that is very unique and interesting.
