It is pretty much general knowledge already, but if you haven’t yet heard, owning both Hyrule Warriors games on the Wii U and 3DS will open the opportunity to transfer the extra characters added to Hyrule Warriors Legends for the 3DS — namely Medli, Toon Link, Skull Kid, King Daphnes, Tetra, and Linkle — to your Wii U system. All you need is a code, which comes inside the case for the 3DS version.

After you get a hold of your code, all you need to do is go into the eShop, and input the code into the “Enter the Download Code” section, and your download will start. That’s it! You can now go pop in your copy of Hyrule Warriors into the Wii U and you will be able to select the new characters for Free and Adventure Modes.

Pretty easy, right? Hyrule Warriors Legends for the 3DS goes on sale starting March 25, which is next week, so it’s only a matter of time now!

    No, you don’t need that code to get Medli, she’ll be added for free for the two games. What’s exclusive to that code, aside from the characters, is Ganondorf’s trident

    • Reggie

      Nope. Trident also comes in the purchased Legends Character Pack, so it’s not exclusive to the code. All the code does is redeem that DLC pack for free.

      • Ryan Haynes

        Not Liffink’s point. Their point was that you don’t get Medli from the Legends Pack, but for free, whether you own Legends or not.

    Nintendo will be releasing DLC called “Legends Character pack” that will give us all of these characters for $18.39 CDN on Wii U

      You better not be lying!

    Also besides what they said, the Nintendo E shop is giving transfer codes if you pre-order it on the receipt at the 24th at 9pm PST

    Aaaaand… I’m f*cked…
    Can’t open Wii U’s Nintendo E-shop because it’s not available in Brazil… :/
    DAMM IT! I WAS HOPING TO PLAY WITH TWILI MIDNA ON THE WII U!!! >:T

    At least I’ll have her at the 3DS…

    • Ryan Haynes

      It wouldn’t give you Twili Midna anyway. It’d only give you the 3DS exclusive characters.

      • MischievousLittleImp

        Well, anyway… I still can’t play as her on the original Hyrule Warriors…
        🙁
