So Cia, Volga, and Wizro or whatever his name is. Volga should have some cool fire-based Dragon transformation attacks.

As expected. Not overly disappointed but I hope this isn't the only dlc to come for the game.

Any mention of cost?

A little dispointing but still cool to have enw content.
I was expecting new characters to be playable, and not new playable (already seen in the game) characters.

Good, good! It was surprising that it wasn't from the beginning. I want to see the video, is it a
reskin of Lana
?

Well if anything this gives reaffirmation that more characters are probably on the way.

These are skyward sword characters right? Never seen them before.
No these are the main villains of Hyrule Warriors made specifically for this game like Lana.

Looks like there are four more DLC pack planned in the future.
Think I heard Twilight pack, Majora's Mask, Ganon and something else.
Though, I might be wrong.

It honestly didn't make sense they weren't playable in the beginning. The humanoid villains are always unlockable in Warriors games. They should be free.

Why? Everybody knows that
there is a character named Lana in this game. I asked about a reskin, not a plot twist
Because
all characters in thegame are unique so one being a reskin might make people ask questions. Best to be safe imo

The stream mentioned an All In Pack with the Dark Link (costume?), so it might work like the MK8 deal.

More Twilight Princess is a good thing. Also Majora's Mask is the best game outside of the three already represented to get more content with it's Orcarina connection.

If they are actually creating a lot of post-release content Groose should become a playable character. Skyward Sword having only Fi and Ghirahim while Agitha gets in rubs me the wrong way. I'll happily pay up to $8 for him alone.

If there are additional tp characters I want ashei, hero's shade and one of the cannon operatives as a joke character.

A master quest pack
A MM pack
A TP pack
A Ganon pack
Sounds good :)
Thanks, I couldn't read that kanji for the 1st pack. From the looks of it, it does look like additional content, not just costumes. I mean, what kind of costulmes would you get with a Master Quest Pack? Master Quest didn't introduce new characters in OoT.

Maybe a lot of challenge mode stages.

Edit: or just three villains?

Funnily enough, his question raised no flags, but your explanation sure does :) Luckily I won't be playing Hyrule warriors (or any Warriors game) for story anytime soon.
