Epona is Hyrule Warriors’ first DLC weapon

Eiji Aonuma took to the Nintendo Miiverse to confirm that Epona, Link’s legendary horse, will be the first DLC weapon on offer for Hyrule Warriors.

Epona is part of the “Hyrule Warriors Master Quest” DLC pack and also comes with a new scenario, an adventure map and two new costumes.

“The new weapon added through the Master Quest Pack is…Epona! Some of you may be surprised to hear that Epona is a “weapon”, but in Hyrule Warriors, she can team up with Link to attack enemies,” Aonuma said. “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. In the Zelda series, players never had a chance to tackle bosses by galloping around them with Epona like in Hyrule Warriors, 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 pack will be available on 16 October.
