Hyrule Warriors Boss Pack DLC Release Set For March; Unleash Ganon's Fury In New Game Mode

Nintendo has announced the fourth and final DLC pack for Hyrule Warriors. Gamers who rather enjoy playing the villain - secretly, we all do - will be thrilled to know that with the upcoming Boss Pack DLC, you can play one of the baddest, certainly one of the biggest, bad guys around.

Wield the power of Ganon in his raging beast form in the new Ganon's Fury mode, wherein you "rain chaos and destruction upon the battlefield". This also unlocks new costumes for both Ganondorf - Ganon's human form and current playable character - as well as the dark sorceress Cia, one of the major villains from Skyward Sword. Hopefully, Cia gets something a little more battle friendly than what she's currently wearing.

The pack also includes the Boss Challenge, wherein players pit themselves in relentless battles against giant bosses to unlock new costumes for Link, Zelda, and Lana.

Tecmo Koei, who created the game (they also manage the Dynasty Warriors franchise upon which this is heavily influenced by) says that this will be the final DLC pack and we hope that's not true in the long run. Hyrule Warriors is a great title for the Wii U and Nintendo joining the modern era by offering DLC - however it may be priced - is a step in the right direction.

As it turns out, the Boss Pack DLC is very affordable. Players can pick it up for $2.99, or purchase the Hero of Hyrule pack which nets you all four expansion packs for $19.99. Ganon and his fury will hit servers on March 12.
