A data miner known as “Random Talking Bush” seems to have discovered the three DLC characters left for Hyrule Warriors Legends. It’s all unconfirmed, but given Random Talking Bush’s history with leaking information, it looks like we’re getting Toon Zelda in the Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks pack, and then Ravio and Yuga with the Link Between Worlds pack.

This was one of the talking points on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia, and we’re not all that excited. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.

Ravio and Yuga are pretty clear choices for
A Link Between Worlds‘ DLC pack—in fact, we recently predicted they’d show up, and we like these choices just fine. But Toon Zelda representing both Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks is pretty disappointing to all three of us, who would have much rather seen Link’s seafaring friend Linebeck join the roster. Ben, in fact, says he’d rather see Hilda join the cast from A Link Between Worlds than see Toon Zelda, who now marks the third playable interpretation of Zelda herself.

Despite this, these character choices are probably very good picks on Nintendo’s part. It’s hard to imagine
Hyrule Warriors won’t continue on Nintendo’s next platform in some way or another, whether it’s another expansion like Hyrule Warriors Legends or a more traditional sequel. If they include every fan-favorite character like Linebeck, Groose, and Vaati now, then they won’t have much content fans can get excited about in a future game.

Unless of course they use the CD-i characters.
Hyrule Warriors needs the CD-i characters.

Colin McIsaac
I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
