Man, does Nintendo know when it has hit on its hands, or what? Hyrule Warriors is raking in all kinds of money for the company, and it seems to be getting more support than even Super Smash Bros. or Mario Kart 8!
It has no problem monetizing on our nostalgia for the DLC, either. One of my main complaints about Hyrule Warriors was that the basic game focused a little too much on the newer Zeldas and not the classics I grew up playing. However, the next DLC pack looks to change that with a massive and fully playable Ganon!
And not the humanoid Ganondorf. Growing up in the early 90s, before Ocarina of Time ever became the standard, Ganon was a giant pig demon who sent his minions to do his bidding while he stooped and waited on top of Death Mountain. He wasn’t a slick, dark prince of thieves but rather a genuinely dangerous being that could openly wage war and crush the Kingdom of Hyrule.
The Legend of Zelda, The Adventures of Link, and Link to the Past all saw our fairy boy hero clash with this bacon lord, and these are the memories that it is aiming for with the upcoming DLC pack.
Let’s just hope it is aiming with Silver Arrows.
• Boss Challenge – Battle against huge demon beasts and aim for the high score in this additional mode. For every battle, you can leave a record with each character. As a reward, you can acquire costumes for Link, Zelda, and Lana.
• Ganon Play – Control the demonic beast Ganon and aim for the high score in this additional mode. With his excessively large stature, he can destroy the battlefield and take out hordes of enemies like never before seen. You can leave a record for every battle. As a reward, you can acquire costumes for Ganondorf and Cia.
The Ganon DLC pack will be available for a measly $2.99, the cheapest DLC pack to date, and it will be available on March 13.
