I have never played a Dynasty Warrior game and can't even force myself to get excited for Hyrule Warriors. Can someone explain the draw to these games?

I feel the game lacks any depth/soul, the character you control goes around attacking tons of minions who just act as fodder and have no purpose other than to be your punching bag. I was thinking they could at least be more of a challenge. But from all the videos so far only the bosses seem to provide any challenge to the game. I don't really see it. If it was more like a Demon Souls type of difficulty mechanic, I probably would be in love but ehh...

Damn it!!!

I HATE dlc and this kind of crap! Part of what I've liked about Nintendo is that they generally haven't gone as far with it as the other companies. But now they are doing this. What a bunch of BS!

Too bad OOT costumes are at GS. I don't really like doing business with them...looks like Amazon for me.

They did the same thing with Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour for the Gamecube. Certain retailers gave you access to exclusive courses via codes you'd enter into the game. This sort of retail exclusiveness isn't new to Nintendo. With MG:TT however, people posted the exclusive codes online. I doubt you could do the same thing this time, since they'll be downloaded content, not codes.

I hate it too and it is going to bum out my oldest son on this particular game. I do feel that Nintendo held out for as long as they could though.

This may not be "new" but it is far from the norm for them and I only see it going further in this direction.

I played this at the Nintendo store last week. Was fun, I'm probably going to get it next week. I want the limited edition from the Nintendo store but they aren't taking preorders, and people will probably line up the night before.

Hello to everyone in the Americas. This is Eiji Aonuma, the Supervisor of Hyrule Warriors.
The game is finally available in North America! Did you get a chance to play it yet?

Hyrule Warriors is a fast-paced Dynasty Warriors game filled with unique elements from The Legend of Zelda series. This game was crafted by the developers at Koei Tecmo Games, who are also fans of the Zelda series, so Zelda fans should have a fun time playing this too.

In addition to our hero, Link, you can play as a variety of characters like Princess Zelda, Impa, and Midna, who makes an appearance in The Legend of Zelda:Twilight Princess, so I hope you'll try them out.

Beyond that, additional downloadable content will become available in Hyrule Warriors after the game launches. The first DLC pack, Master Quest Pack, will be released on October 16.
The details of that pack will be revealed soon, but today, let me give you a sneak peak at an additional weapon.

The new weapon added through the Master Quest Pack is...Epona!

Some of you may be surprised to hear that Epona is a "weapon", but in Hyrule Warriors, she can team up with Link to attack enemies!
I already had a chance to try out Epona in the game. By riding Epona, I was able to blow heards of enemies away and gallop swiftly through the fields, and I had a lot of fun trying out this re-imagined version of her in Hyrule Warriors.
In the Zelda series, players never had a chance to tackle bosses by galloping around them with Epona like in Hyrule Warriors, so I hope fans will enjoy playing as Zelda characters in a game with a different type of action than you typically find in the original series.

In addition to Epona, the DLC will include other content as well, like new scenarios and costumes that will further expand your gaming experience. If you're interested, please check it out in the Nintendo eShop. I hope these download packs will help deepen and expand your adventures in Hyrule Warriors.
