Europe will be musou-ing the night away for most of the year.

Nintendo's European website has announced details on how the Hyrule Warriors Legends season pass will work for both Wii U and 3DS..

Launch day (24 March in Europe, March 25 in North America) will see the 3DS season pass go on sale, as well as a 3DS and Wii U season pass. This pass includes:

  1. A Master Wind Waker pack in late spring (Adventure mode map) + Medli for all 3DS/Wii U owners
  2. A Link's Awakening Pack in summer (Adventure mode map, new character, Linkle weapon
  3. A Phanton Hourglass/Spirit Tracks pack in autumn (Adventure mode map, new character, Toon Link weapon)
  4. A Link Between Worlds pack in winter (Adventure mode map, two playable characters)

All packs include My Fairy costume parts as well.

The Wii U version will be able to buy the Legends characters along with the season pass (less the Adventure mode maps) in seperate packs that will be made available this summer. The Legends Characters Pack for Wii U will be €11.99/£10.79, the season pass for Wii U will be €9.99/£8.99, the 3DS pass will be €14.99/£13.49 and the 3DS+Wii U combo pack €16.99/£15.29.

It looks like the Wii U version won't be getting new environments, which is a shame and expected. However, having new characters and weapons is the major draw of Musou games, so it's nice to have the confirmation of being able to purchase those just for the Wii U game.

Since I've only JUST BARELY beaten the FIRST adventure map for the Wii U version, I can't even begin to imagine what these additional maps would do to my playtime. It's a shame that they aren't coming to the Wii U version, but then again, you have to sell units with exclusivity in mind.

Does Legends have all the DLC maps from the original game? If so, I feel truly screwed. The Wii U version will just forever be the inferior one, since it lacks the Legends Adventure maps, and Nintendo is pretty much asking me to shell out half the price for the Wii U version plus DLC.

Welcome to Koei Tecmo Musou games. Hmm, I would like to see a Hyrule Warriors: Empires.

Given the grindy and cobbled together nature of the Adventure Maps, I can't follow you in your disappointment even though I enjoyed the varied missions of some Adventure Maps.

Evan_BMarch 19, 2016

I mean, they're grindy, but once you get the Master Quest map (where you can boost five levels in a single "rack up a high combo" square), things change drastically.

EnnerMarch 19, 2016

I don't think I found that square on the map. Or maybe I missed it.

I don't think I ever got much headway in to the Majora's Mask Adventure Map, so that's partially the reason why I'm not too miffed of the Wii U game not getting more Adventure Maps.

Evan_BMarch 19, 2016

Yeah, "Rack up your kill count!" maps on the Master Quest map are essentially "15 minutes, unlimited Magic Pots" mode. I leveled all my characters to 70 in like, a few hours.
