Here’s the list of items available in the Great Sea, and their functionality. The items are usable on the map itself, like the Compass on regular maps.

  • The Wind Waker removes Wind Walls, so you can pass through them.

  • The Boomerang can defeat Big Octos, in order to remove disadvantageous rules from the battle.

Famitsu also revealed that, like the extra characters, the DLC maps for the Adventure Mode of Hyrule Warriors on Wii U will be available in Hyrule Warriors Legends from the start. However, the content cannot be transferred back to the Wii U version. The magazine doesn’t say whether the Great Sea will be available on the Wii U.

Network Links have been replaced by StreetPass Links in Hyrule Warriors Legends. However, they seem to function in the same way.
