By Ishaan . August 27, 2014 . 9:00am

On September 1st, Koei Tecmo will release the update for Hyrule Warriors that they recently mentioned over Twitter. This update will fix a variety of bugs in the game, and will add a Challenge Mode to the game. It also gives Link a new 8-bit-style sword, whcih you can see in the screenshots of the update below.


The patch will update Hyrule Warriors to version 1.2.0. Note that this is primarily an update for bug fixes, and that some sort of larger update with more content for the game is in development, too. That will be released at a later point in time.


Challenge Mode:


A new Sword weapon for Link:


BGM Setting feature:

This feature allows you to change what music plays during a particular mission.


Whether or not this update will be included in the base game when Hyrule Warriors releases in the West hasn’t been announced yet. The game will be available in North America on September 26th and in Europe on September 19th.

  • Eder García

    who needs 3d dot heroes?

  • Pyrotek85

    Any word if the costumes will be available for purchase, or will they really still be pre-order only?

    • doubleO7

      No doubt they’ll be available for purchase, it’s just a matter of when. But no, they haven’t said yet.

  • that weapon looks amazing.

  • Namuro


    …How the heck is he holding that…?

    • Sentinel

      That’s what I’m wondering. It’d be one thing if the sword was smaller.

  • Kalis Konig

    If a small update such as this has added these fine features, I can’t wait to see what the paid expansions/dlc will offer.
