Hyrule Warriors: Current Roster Screen

In Hyrule Warriors for Wii U they adapted the roster screen to fit all the new DLC characters:


It now uses columns of seven and eight, which in total can hold up to 30 characters as well, much like the roster screen on 3DS. And hopefully this won't just be coincidence. Already back in May I speculated about a potential 30th character, because otherwise the 3DS character menu will have an empty corner. Now it would be the same on the Wii U.

Also, we're celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Zelda, where it would be a nice gift for the fans, if we receive the 30th character as a free addition.

Like Medli, who was released for free alongside the Master Wind Waker Pack, the last character will probably accompany the A Link Between Worlds Pack, where it still makes the most sense, if we get the full Lorule trio of Ravio, Yuga AND Hilda. Make it happen, Koei Tecmo!

Hey there,

I guess, that's just the same as with the roster screens on both Wii U and 3DS. As long as they don't put actual placeholders on the site, it won't mean anything.

It could also be a random character button like in Smash, but that might take some weird hoops to jump through (would it randomize your weapon type choice for multiple weapon characters? Would it randomize your specific weapon choice of the up to 8 weapons per type?

I sure hope it's Hilda and not a random character choice, but it's a feasible possibility.

I doubt that they would a random button at this point... Why save that function for the last update and let the people in the hope that there could be a 30th character slot?
