Look like you get your wish Nester, KT just announced that there will be a DLC pack for the new Legends characters for the Wii U game. Also they revealed the games that the new DLC content will be from, Link's Awakening with 1 warrior (Prince Richard please), the DS games with 1 warrior, and ALBW with 2 warriors.

Sounds like it's just the characters and weapons, and not any of the new story missions. But that's OK. I'm still working my way through the Twilight map, and I'm more excited about new characters anyway.
And it'll be a lot cheaper than forking out $40 for the 3DS game. (Probably $10-15 for the season pass, if the exchange rate is any indication.)
EDIT: The official site just confirmed it is US$9.99 (CDN$14.09) for the season pass.
EDIT 2: Actually, that's the price for everything except the Legends character pack, which is an additional US$12.99. So all together, it costs more than the first season pass for only extra characters and weapons? Lame.
So this is what I know about the Hyrule Warriors Legends DLC packs so far:
Master Wind Waker Pack - 16 new My Fairy costume pieces (3DS only) - The Master Wind Waker map for Adventure Mode with one new adventure battle scenario (3DS only)
Link's Awakening Pack - new playable character - new weapon for Linkle - 16 new My Fairy costume pieces (3DS only) - new map for Adventure Mode with two new challenge battle scenarios (3DS only)
Phantom Hourglass & Spirit Tracks Pack - new playable character - new weapon for Toon Link - 15 new My Fairy costume pieces (3DS only) - new map for Adventure Mode with one new adventure battle and two new challenge battle scenarios (3DS only)
A Link Between Worlds Pack - two new playable characters - 15 new My Fairy costumes (3DS only) - new map for Adventure Mode and one new adventure battle and two new challenge battle scenarios (3DS only)
I guess we are getting 4 more characters in addition to Medli... my guesses are Marin, Linebeck, Ravio, and Yuga... and Toon Link's new weapon might be Phantom Zelda. (I wish Makar is playable too)
It's not reeeeeally a crossover game though, everybody in it is from Zelda. Maybe you can't speak to Yoshi like you can Richard, but he still cameos in Link's Awakening, so it's just as valid. Or Kirby or Wart. I'd feel a little cheated if any of those cameo characters were included as the representative of Link's Awakening, personally. I'd rather have an actual Link's Awakening character.
We're going to have to agree to disagree on our criteria. Personally I would love to see old non Zelda characters like Takamaru, Richard, and even the trio from Marvelous appear as warriors. Hell, what I really want to see happen down the line is a Hyrule Warriors X with characters from Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, Metroid and other similar titles.
I'd like to see that too, but it's not really Hyrule Warriors, is it? That's just Nintendo Warriors.
What I'm saying is, as a fan of Link's Awakening, I'd be pretty pissed if the character for the Link's Awakening DLC was a character from a totally different franchise who just happened to cameo in Link's Awakening. Especially when this game is already so lacking in pre-OOT stuff. It'd be like them announcing a WarioWare character for Mario Kart and then it turning out to be someone from another series who just showed up in a 9-Volt microgame.
I'm pretty sure after seeing the success that was this series, they'd take other franchises into account when making a future DLC, though I'd much prefer "Nintendo Warriors" being a sequel. Maybe we could get a Fire Emblem or Kid Icarus Pack, even Kirby.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)

Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
