Eiji Aonuma, Supervisor for Nintendo’s upcoming Hyrule Warriors game announced today via Miiverse that the first DLC pack, the Master Quest Pack, will be available for purchase on October 16th.
Although Aonuma was not at liberty to discuss all of the content included in the pack, he did reveal that one of the weapons being added in the pack was none other than Link’s trusty steed, Epona. While it may seem odd that Epona is considered a “weapon,” this is mainly because of her ability to team up with Link to take out enemies.
According to a first-hand account from Aonuma, “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.”
You can also expect the Master Quest Pack to include goodies like costumes and new scenarios for you to try out. Hyrule Warriors is now available on the Wii U.
