The lights are on
The Japanese website for Hyrule Warriors recently showcased some of the costume DLC for the game.
Right now, the DLC is only confirmed for the Japanese version of the game. There are multiple planned editions for the Japanese version of the game called the Premium and Treasure Box. These outfits are part of the courage and wisdom costume costume sets. Presumably a power costume set is also planned in the interest of finishing out the Triforce. More DLC costumes are planned, but these are all that have been revealed so far.
For more on Hyrule Warriors, check out trailers for Link wielding the Master Sword and the Fire Rod, the appearance of Lana, Zant, And Agitha, Zelda, and Impa. For more, check out our hands-on impressions from E3, an interview with the team, and the title's E3 trailer. Hyrule Warriors will be out on September 26 on Wii U.

I don't mind costume DLC for this game. I personally love customiztion items in games. I bet there will be some cool ones in the game.
Game just keeps getting better and better. This will be my go-to costume.
TP Link and Zelda are my favorites so this is great news.
Damn Nintendo.... Don't you know US consumers throw our money at CE's and dlc!? This needs to come Stateside.
DLC before the game is even out, I hate this part of modern gaming so much.
That's cool. My only exposure to Zelda thus far is Smash Brothers, which borrows from these designs, so the Hyrule Warriors models looked really bizarre in my eyes.
At first I thought they were updated Brawl models for the new Smash Bros. Anyways, hopefully if Ganondorf is announced as a playable character, he'll have his own costume set.
Honestly I always thought Link looked his best in TP. Was a fan of the game's more realistic style.
I just checked and it comes with all copies of the game in Japan.
