A recent Miiverse post from Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma confirmed that the highlight of the new DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors, the Twilight Princess pack, will be the inclusion of Midna in her true, “twili” form.

This is the form that Midna assumes at the very end of Twilight Princess, when she finally goes back to being a breathtakingly beautiful princess.

She will use the Mirror of Twilight as a weapon. Aonuma said that it’s pretty amazing. In fact, he “can’t describe in words what’s so amazing about it.”

It was also confirmed that there will be many other features in the Twilight Princess pack, including new weapons, costumes, a new adventure map, and a costume for Link that will let you dress him up “as a certain familiar character from the Zelda series.”

For those who blazed through the on-disc content of Hyrule Warriors and just want to play more, this will definitely be a great purchase. Big fans of Twilight Princess will also probably get a kick out of it.

So, what do you think? Will the inclusion of Twili Midna affect your playstyle? What do you think that new Link costume will be? Leave us your thoughts in the comments or on Zelda Eternity’s forums!

Zelda Eternity’s Official Review of Hyrule Warriors

Posted on September 25, 2014 by Shank

The latest Zelda spin-off, Hyrule Warriors, is almost here, and how fitting that I should be the one to bring you a review of it! To give you the most basic rundown, Hyrule Warriors is a crossover between Dynasty Warriors and The Legend of Zelda. The aim of the game – primarily from the Dynasty Warriors system – is to maintain control of a vast battlefield. Each map has its own goal for success, and you’ll receive missions throughout the battle which progress you toward the ultimate goal of each scenario.

A quick note from the reviewer before we begin: I didn’t think it wise to give this game a number score. My idea of a good score may be different from your idea of a good score, and it would just boil all I have to say about the game down to an arbitrary number.

Those of you Zelda fans living in New York City may want to cancel your preorders for the upcoming Zelda spin off, Hyrule Warriors.

While this set was widely released in Europe and even included a clock and art book in Japan, its US release will be extremely limited. The Nintendo World Store will not be accepting preorders, citing “high demand” in this tweet. It is also worth noting that quantities are limited.

Posted on September 7, 2014 by Daisuke909

With the exception of that one part with Epona on the bridge in Twilight Princess, the Zelda series has never been known for having stunningly beautiful cut scenes. That is, until Hyrule Warriors came out in Japan and the world was able to see the remarkable quality that Tecmo Koei was able to bring to the table in terms of cinematic sequences. Now, Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma is determined to have the upcoming Legend of Zelda game for Wii U feature cut scenes of this caliber.

New Mario Kart 8 DLC to Feature Link

Posted on August 26, 2014 by Daisuke909

The possibility of a Legend of Zelda character appearing in a Mario Kart game has been raised before, but never as little more than a far-reaching hypothetical. That made it all the more exciting when a new Mario Kart 8 DLC was revealed inadvertently by Nintendo UK.

There will be 2 DLC packs in total, the first launching in November and the second holding off until May. Fortunately, it’s the first one that will be welcoming the unmistakable Hero of Time to the kart racer’s wild race courses. The packs originally appeared for pre-order on the Nintendo UK store here, but are now listed as “sold out.”

Link will be bearing his Skyward Sword appearance and have the Hylian Crest as his racer insignia. Other than that, nothing is known about how Link will be incorporated into the game.

In addition to Link’s appearance, there will also be 5 other new characters between the 2 packs, Tanooki Mario, Cat Peach, Dry Bowser, Villager, and Isabelle. Each pack will also include 2 new cups with 4 courses each, coming to a grand total of 16 new courses! This is definitely something for Mario Kart fans to look forward to.

For more information, check out the article from Polygon here.

What do you think of a Zelda character crossing over into Mario territory? Will you be racing as Link or sticking to the more traditional fare? Feel free to discuss these questions in the comments or on Zelda Eternity’s forums.
