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: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
