Japan received the first update to Hyrule Warriors today, which added a new mode of gameplay and the familiar 8-bit sword and shield of the original Legend of Zelda game as options in the game. The add-on content was provided for free in Japan and according to the latest tweet from Nintendo of Europe, it will be available at launch on September 19.
Since the North American version of the game is launching on September 26, it’s likely the additional content will be available there, as well. Are you still excited for the game? Despite the game performing decently on its first week of sales in Japan, sales have now dipped considerably. Dynasty Warriors has never been hugely popular here in the United States and many people expected better performance from the game in Japan.
