Here’s how the Hyrule Warriors 3DS to Wii U transfer process works

It’s a simple code

As you may have heard, Nintendo is allowing players to import characters from the 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors Legends (Tetra, King of Hyrule, Skull Kid, Toon Link, and Linkle) into the previous Wii U edition of the game. It’s been out in Japan since January, but now that I have a US copy of the game, I can confirm the details of the transfer process.

It’s…relatively painless. Tucked within the actual physical case is a code, which unlocks the appropriate cast members for use in free mode or adventure mode on Wii U. There’s also a code for a bonus 3DS theme. I was not able to test out the code itself as I am greeted with a “This content is not currently being distributed” message, but I’ll check back when the game actually launches on March 25.

Stay tuned next week for our full Hyrule Warriors Legends 3DS review.
