We weren’t quite sure what was coming next after Epona‘s appearance in Hyrule Warriors, but today Nintendo have announced that Twili Midna will be introduced as a playable character in the game’s Twilight Princess Pack.
“This time around, there will be a new playable character – someone from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess… Who do you think it is?” Eiji Aonuma, who supervised the game, wrote on Miiverse.
“Here’s a hint: this character only appeared in this form at the very end of Twilight Princess. In that game, Midna is cursed and cast out from the Twilight Realm, but now you will be able to unleash her true form as Twili Midna!”
He continued, “When I was developing Twilight Princess, I thought it was such a waste to let a beautiful princess like her only appear in the ending. Now Koei Tecmo Games has made my wish to see more of her come true.
“Twili Midna’s weapon is the Mirror of Twilight, which appeared in Twilight Princess. This mirror was destroyed at the end of that game, but it’s pretty amazing in Hyrule Warriors. In fact, I can’t describe in words what’s so amazing about it, so I hope you’ll download this DLC pack and see for yourself.”
The Twilight Princess Pack will also lend aid in providing players with new weapons, costumes and an adventure map, although Aonuma had another tease to share.
“In addition to Twili Midna, the Twilight Princess Pack includes new weapons, costumes and an adventure map, so if you played through the original game, they should contribute to the fun you’ll have in Hyrule Warriors. (For one of the costumes, you can dress Link up as a certain familiar character from the Zelda series. It may make you say ‘Wow!’ so I hope you’ll look forward to it.)”
Nintendo have confirmed that the Twilight Princess Pack for Hyrule Warriors will release worldwide on Thursday 27th November.
