Hyrule Warriors DLC Costume Packs On Sale; All Retailer 'Exclusive' Sets Now Available For Very, Very Cheap
One of the most acclaimed titles released this year on the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors, is helping to segue Nintendo into the next generation. The Dynasty Warriors-esque actioner has announced four DLC packs - something Nintendo had almost never done before. Two have dropped already, with the other two to arrive next year.
There have been several costume packs along the way, too, and they are on sale for “hella” cheap. There’s no doubt that the controversy around paid DLC (especially for simple cosmetic upgrades) will rage on and on, but for $0.99 I’m sure even the most die hard ‘won’t pay over two dollars for any digital download, and will begrudgingly purchase stuff for less’ will be somewhat pleased with this revelation.
Yep, the price of a McJunior can net you the Ganondorf-themed "Demon King" costume set for everyone’s favorite Power mad villain; as well as the Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, and Ocarina of Time costume packs for both Link and Zelda.
All of this is to say that good things come to those who wait. The costume sets were retailer exclusives when the game dropped back in September. Looks like the definition of exclusive is going the way of ‘literally’.
Exclusive - ex·clu·sive; adjective
1. excluding or not admitting other things.
"my exclusive focus is on San Antonio issues"
2. restricted or limited to the person, group, or area concerned.
"the couple had exclusive possession of the condo"
To add: 3. with regards to video games, a meaningless phrase used to force gamers into panicking and therefore pre-ordering a video game so company investors can turn a nice quarter profit; the restriction or limitation to the console or retailer providing ‘exclusive’ coverage will be removed during end of year and GOTY re-issues, thereby nullifying the original meaning of the word ‘exclusive’
Oh, and Merry Christmas!
