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.
nocturnal YL: …Drat, I lost a few days of captured game footage thanks to my HDMI recorder corrupting the microSD card's filesystem.

nocturnal YL: I just realised that I haven't made a proper post for more than a month. I was either busy at work and thus didn't want to make long posts, or I was busy playing… well, you know. Time spent on playing games is time not spent on talking about games.

Nester the Lark: I was thinking how I considered the original Donkey Kong Country to be a generic Super Mario Bros clone with fancy graphics, but SMB Wonder only just caught up to the level of quality that DKC Tropical Freeze gave us almost a decade ago.
Nov 20, 2023 14:57:21 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is surprising. I see DKC as the least Mario-like platformer to feature a Mario character. The Wario Land games still feature Mario-style blocks and pipes, for example, while DKC lacks many Mario elements.
Nov 21, 2023 8:16:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: True that DKC lacks a lot of specific Mario-like details, but it has the basic gameplay in that you run, jump, and defeat enemies by landing on them. I didn't see it as having much more than this, thus why I considered it generic.

Evie ❤✿: Yeah, psychologically there is a 'first example' thing. When something new is released and is thought to be innovative, and becomes popular it can lead to comparing newer games to be like it (so we have newer genres like "Metroidvania").
Nov 24, 2023 18:28:16 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: I find it interesting with platformers, it's less often that we regard platform games after Mario as "Mario-like". On this note, I also find it interesting how certain genres are treated differently.
Nov 24, 2023 18:29:32 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: In addition to the "platform" (rather than Mario-like) and Metroidvania examples (incidentally there were games like Metroid and Castlevania before their release), some games are seen as "rip-offs" if people think they're too similar.
Nov 24, 2023 18:31:26 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: An example is how some people treat Fossil Fighters, Robopon, Yo-Kai Watch as Pokémon 'rip-offs' or clones, and the 'monster-battling' genre is often seen as less 'mainstream' than something like 'platformer'.
Nov 24, 2023 18:32:39 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: Also on that note, often people on databases, wikis, etc. stick to only a few genre labels like "platform", "arcade", "fighting", "racing" etc. but there are many more ways to describe a game.
Nov 24, 2023 18:35:03 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: The developers may choose to advertise their game using their own genre, so for instance Starfy was given the label "marine action" in Japan rather than "platformer". I think in essence these don't exist in isolation though.
Nov 24, 2023 18:36:28 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: It also reminds me of how there was apparently a debate on whether NES The Legend of Zelda is an adventure game or RPG (or something like that).

Nester the Lark: Happy 6th anniversary to my favorite RPG, Xenoblade Chronicles 2!

nocturnal YL: The Super Mario Bros. Wonder speedruns don't feel much like Mario speedruns. Any% takes more than 80 minutes, and features slow Wonder Seed segments and a lot of loading time. They're rather boring to watch compared to even the New SMB games.

nocturnal YL: I've got a lot of Nintendo Switch demos that I haven't got to play. At this rate I'll never clear my backlog even if I don't buy anything.

nocturnal YL: I've finally finished Ciel nosurge DX. Its end is directly connected to the beginning of Ion's part in Ar nosurge DX, which means I'll have to play through that to experience the whole story.
Dec 2, 2023 12:45:14 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Going through everything takes more time than finishing an entire quadrilogy in the Atelier series. I think it'll be another few months before I even touch another game.
Dec 2, 2023 12:46:32 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, this is of no use to most people reading this, but Surge Concerto confusingly has save data bonus that goes both ways. To experience the story in chronological order, do Sekai Link in Ar nosurge DX as soon as possible, then play Ciel nosurge DX.
Dec 2, 2023 13:05:55 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Any advice you find online about needing to advance Ar nosurge's story to a certain point does not apply to the DX version. Just make the save data and leave it behind to avoid Ciel nosurge spoilers and not understanding Ar nosurge's story.
Dec 2, 2023 13:07:17 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: (By the way, the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Ar nosurge is available in English, but not Ciel nosurge. The DX version is entirely Japan-only. I have much to complain when it comes to localisation for both Gust and the whole of KOEI TECMO GAMES.)
