Hyrule Warriors – a few more Details on Online play & Save Files

Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors will have online play for the Wii U. Online play will be a special mode outside the main campaign it seems, this also seems to be separate from the local co-op that will be based on the campaign mode. According to Nintendo Everything, the wording on the Japanese site makes it seem as if there is a ‘special mode prepared for those who intend to play over the internet.’ Lite Agent on NeoGAF has also chimed in saying Hyrule Warriors is confirmed to have online play. Here is his translation straight from the Japanese site: “Play Special battle in adventure mode”. Lite Agent often translates Japanese correctly, so you can trust his translation. There will only be one save file per a user, and DLC is confirmed, of course.
