When Hyrule Warriors first hit shelves, a number of retailers boasted exclusive-to-them costumes, inspired by Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time. Until now, that was the only way to get the extra content… but Nintendo‘s gotten into the festive spirit, offering all three costume packs (plus one more!) right now in the eShop.
(Yes, you can buy the full game directly from the Nintendo website, but to get the DLC, you’ll need to log into the Wii U eShop – a bit of a pain, but totally worth it.)
The Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time-inspired packs all bring a new costume each for Link and Zelda, redesigning the characters with a more retro look. The fourth pack – the Demon King Costume Set – features two new costumes for Ganondorf, one inspired by Twilight Princess, and the other from Ocarina of Time.
If you were lucky enough to pre-order Hyrule Warriors from a participating retailer, you may already have a costume pack – these are exactly the same, so there’s no need to buy again. Ganondorf’s costumes were also available earlier via Club Nintendo – again, it’s the same content, you can save your $0.99.
