Hyrule Warriors’ first DLC pack arrives on October 16, but Eiji Aonuma is already teasing some of the new content. Epona herself will join the battle as Link’s fifth weapon set. Hit the jump for more information!
So, Hyrule Warriors has released in North America.
Excluding that initial post in June, I haven’t appropriately expressed my enthusiasm for this game. Seriously, that announcement on June 10 was one hell of a [barely belated] birthday present.
It’s been several months since the announcement, and I still occasionally find myself going back and reading some of our testimonials. To punctuate how much of a dork I am, I just finished playing through Twilight Princess again.
This week’s UK sales charts are in, and Hyrule Warriors is off to an excellent start. According to GFK Chart-Track, the Zelda-Dynasty Warriors crossover broke the top five — just behind Destiny.
Although we don’t know how many copies have been sold, this is undoubtedly a healthy sign for the game’s first western release. I’m curious to see whether it’ll hold up in the coming weeks, not to mention how it’ll perform in the US this weekend.
