Hyrule Warriors (known as Zelda Musō in the Land of the Rising Sun) may have just released in Japan, but that doesn’t mean the teams Omega Force and Team Ninja aren’t still hard at work adding extra bells & whistles to the Wii U’s pugilistic love letter to all things Zelda and Dynasty Warriors.

In an update slated to be released next Monday, September 1st, players will get new weapons, BGM options, and an all-new Challenge Mode.

Check out the full list of features included in Hyrule Warriors’ September 1st update 1.2.0 below.

  • Challenge Mode – Take on eccentric battles in this challenging new mode. In the added scenario “Faron Woods, The Great Battles!” players will challenge enemy outbreaks one after the other and aim for the shortest clear time.
  • New Weapon – A new “Sword” weapon for Link with a pixelated appearance. Pixelated shield included.
  • BGM Options – A new function to change the BGM played during battle. Before the start of each battle, by selecting “BGM Settings” from the menu screen, it’s possible to change the song to one you’ve already come across.
  • Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a bug that reduces your max strength if you’re defeated in battle.
    • Fixed a bug that where sound was not output from the TV when starting up the game after playing only on the GamePad.
    • Fixed a bug that paused the BGM during the battle victory screen.
    • Fixed a bug where, in rare cases, the screen would go black and sometimes freeze after a battle is won.
    • Fixed a bug where the game would randomly freeze when “Network Connections” is turned “On.”

Hyrule Warriors is slated to be released on the Wii U in North America on September 26th. Stay tuned for more details on the game as its release draws near.
