Hyrule Warriors’ play-as-Ganon mode looks broken and awesome

Upcoming patch will fix long loading times, thank goodness

In the next and seemingly final piece of DLC for Hyrule Warriors, we’ll be able to punch bosses in the face as the biggest boss of all, Ganon, in his own separate mode. I’m eager to let my anger out on the Imprisoned, that jerk. Toes will be smashed. The camera will peace out. Fun times for all.

There’s also a separate boss rush mode, which doesn’t sound too appealing considering how painfully repetitive those fights become once you’re hundreds of hours into the game, but I’ll at least play to unlock some new costumes. Speaking of which, Ganondorf, you feeling okay?

The Boss Pack DLC is now available in Japan and will release on March 12, 2015 in North America as part of the season pass. Alternatively, you can nab it as standalone for $2.99.

A free game update is also on the way. Most notably, it’ll address those pesky load times, raise the level cap to 255, and flesh out the Apothecary with mixtures that cause the weak point gauge to deplete more quickly, increase attacks against giant bosses, and absorb magic from bosses.

Amazing spoiler alert: This is one of the rewards in the new Ganon Play mode:

Bless this game.
