Link’s trusty steed to be added to the game as part of the Master Quest Pack.
Epona, Link’s iconic horse from the Legend of Zelda series, will be added as DLC to the Wii U exclusive action game based on the Zelda universe, Hyrule Warriors, Nintendo confirmed today.
This announcement comes to us from Zelda series director Eiji Aonuma, who posted this on Nintendo’s Miiverse, specifying that Epona would act as a weapon in the game.
“In the Zelda series, players never had a chance to tackle bosses by galloping around them with Epona like in Hyrule Warriors,” he added. “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.”
The Master Quest Pack will be available to everyone for free who bought the Season Pass (which costs $20). It should also be available for purchase separately in the eShop.
Stay tuned for more of our coverage on the game.
