The Nintendo Direct earlier this month dropped the news that Hyrule Warriors Legends for 3DS would be getting four new batches of DLC and a Season Pass that would encompass it all. Now, courtesy of Nintendo UK, we have a more detailed look at what’s to come.

What’s worth noting is the confirmation that the original Wii U version will also be receiving some of the DLC and its own Season Pass. Players can choose to buy standalone Season Passes for the 3DS or Wii U versions, or one that covers both.

The Wii U DLC will also only contain new weapons and playable characters, whereas the 3DS DLC packs will come with new My Fairy costumes and Adventure Maps.

Here’s the full list of content, directly from the Nintendo UK site:
