Midna will be a playable character in upcoming Hyrule Warriors DLC


Today on Miiverse, series producer Eiji Aonuma has confirmed that Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will be a playable character in the upcoming DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors. This DLC pack is scheduled to be released on November 27 and will feature more characters and weapons from Twilight Princess. Here’s the update from Aonuma on Miiverse:

When I was developing Twilight Princess, I thought it was such a waste to let a beautiful princess like her only appear in the ending. Now Koei Tecmo Games has made my wish to see more of her come true. Twili Midna’s weapon is the Mirror of Twilight, which appeared in Twilight Princess. This mirror was destroyed at the end of that game, but it’s pretty amazing in Hyrule Warriors.

In fact, I can’t describe in words what’s so amazing about it, so I hope you’ll download this DLC pack and see for yourself. In addition to Twili Midna, the Twilight Princess Pack includes new weapons, costumes and an adventure map, so if you played through the original game, they should contribute to the fun you’ll have in Hyrule Warriors. (For one of the costumes, you can dress Link up as a certain familiar character from the Zelda series. It may make you say ”Wow!” so I hope you’ll look forward to it.) The second DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors, the Twilight Princess Pack, will be released globally on November 27!

This pack is part of Nintendo’s continued effort to support its games after release with new DLC, which is something we’ve seen in the past with Mario Kart 8. Will you be picking up this DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors?
