There is plenty for Zelda fans to be excited about (the announcement of a new 3DS Zelda game called ‘The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes’, as well as the announcement of Hyrule Warriors: Legends just before E3). But, amid the chaos of E3, it seems Nintendo has pushed out a little surprise update for the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors to celebrate the upcoming Hyrule Warriors: Legends game for 3DS. The company has released update 1.7.0. It gives Link a new costume in the Wii U version of the game, donning his classic attire from the original games in the Zelda franchise. Furthermore, players who get Hyrule Warriors: Legends will be able to transfer the new warriors in that game into the Wii U version of the game, as well! This is also stated in the update notes for the new 1.7.0 patch in Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U.
It’s a small but much-appreciated surprise. I was hoping they’d give Link a costume like this all along actually. It’s great to see it finally happen. All you have to do is fire up your Wii U and start up the game to get the update, and then you can kick some baddie butt as old-school Link! Zelda Wii U may be a long ways off yet, but we have another Hyrule Warriors game coming to 3DS along with another new Zelda game to give us our fix until then.
