The Hyrule Warriors Legends season pass includes 4 new adventure maps, 4 new characters, 2 new weapons and some other trinkets like fairy costumes; the original Wii U game will be getting some but not all of that content (the new characters/weapons) and you'll be able to buy it on Wii U without owning the 3DS version at a later date.

Shantae Risky's Revenge is a barely-altered port of the second Shantae game that originally released on DSiWare - they fixed the map and some of the checkpointing and added a new game+ style mode with a new costume but it's pretty much the same game. Pirate's Curse is better but it's still okay.

You sure that the Wii U version of Hyrule Warriors will be getting the maps as well? From what I understand, it'll only get the characters and the weapons and I don't recall anyone stating otherwise.

The international community will still exist, so you'll be guaranteed a certain amount of content regardless of how it does or doesn't sell in PAL-land.

They haven't directly mentioned it in a while but their last comment basically said, "we still plan on releasing in PAL-land but the last release cost us a shitload to translate and sold one-tenth of the number of copies it sold in NA, so it'll happen when it happens". The PR they sent out over GDC did mention a European translation but nothing beyond that, ie no word on if or when it'll be out elsewhere.

At this point they're working on the 3.3 update and BIG which are both slated for "Spring", and the EU localization probably won't happen until after that, if it happens at all.

I don't know if there are "Musou diehards" so much as people that like the new age brawlery gameplay and basic Musou formula + have an appreciation for Koei's weird historical drama interpretations of the sangoku/sengoku periods, or their take on whatever weird anime license they're working with this time. The nice thing about Musou is that if you are really into whichever particular iteration you're playing, they will gladly give you things to do for a million hours or until you get bored. I play most of them but I only get in super deep on one like that every couple of games.

I feel like even for people that love the Dynasty Warriors series, you'd have to skip every other one or something. There's no way you couldn't burnout on a series that has probably close to 50 full releases, and that doesn't even include offshoots like Bladestorm and Crimson Sea.

I wouldn't call it a convenience store. The stock goes past what you'd find at the typical 7-11 and they're generally a bit larger. The last time I was at a Family Dollar I was buying a roll of brown craft paper to wrap and mail a package. I think of them like the halfway step between convenience stores and big retail outlets like Wal-Mart.

The one in my hometown has a single copy of Thor for the DS that's been next to the register for almost a decade at this point.

Yeah, I definitely go every other one unless I hear that one I had planned to skip is absolutely amazing, relatively speaking.

I also don't get all the anime/side games, only ones that are from things that interest me and I've heard are good.

I very much enjoy the ones I do play, though. They're great.

Thing is there's only a few mainstream Dynasty Warriors games. We're only on like, what, 8? (Not counting the little expansion-offs, which is more of a fault with consoles design; although these days you could probably do DLC expansion upgrades instead)

I don't know anybody who plays every single musou offshoot. Like, you'd have to be a turbonerd to be into one piece AND zelda AND dynasty warriors AND samurai warriors AND Fist of the north star.

And the "legends of Troy" one was kinda like a quick cash-in discount game, pretty sure nobody actually played that one.

Plus handheld titles shouldn't count.
That's like saying "you'd have to skip every other age of empires or something" Just because there were lovely GBA ports of some of them.

C'mon dude there's 4 AOE games, if you include Age of Mythology. Let's count the number of full musou-style games that Omega Force has developed:

Dynasty Warriors 1-8
Dynasty Warriors Empires 4-8
Samurai Warriors 1 through 4-II
Samurai Warriors Empires 2-4
Warriors Orochi 1-3
Dynasty Warriors Gundam 1-3 & Reborn
Dynasty Warriors Strikeforce
One Piece Pirate Warriors 1-3
Fist of the North Star 1 & 2
Dragon Quest Heroes 1 & 2
Arslan: Warriors of Legend

36 games!!! That's a poo poo ton of games and content, and that doesn't even include other offshoots/similar series like Bladestorm, Crimson Sea, Kessen, Dynasty Tactics, Legend of Troy, etc.

Yeah, if you only count the mainline Dynasty Warriors games that's only 8, but, correct me if I'm wrong, most people consider all the musou games to be housed under one umbrella.

Lemon-Lime

DQH is different enough from Dynasty/Samurai/Orochi that it's noticeable. Same with Hyrule Warriors, to a lesser extent.

The Gundam Musou games are definitely mainstream Warriors games. Not sure about Arslan (I imagine it is) or the One Piece ones, though.

Really, when people say "the main Musou series" they mean Dynasty/Samurai/Orochi.

It's pretty lame that apparently Hyrule Warriors Wii U is only getting the new movesets and not the adventure maps or anything. What am I supposed to do with a shitload of new characters when none of the content is geared towards them? I really don't want to have to buy Legends for all the new stuff since that would mean starting from square one after the countless hours it took to level my characters and unlock high-end weapons.

Trade in prices are pretty decent right now, a couple Nintendo first party games and your O3DS should cover most of it. I got $40 in trade in for my 2DS at Gamestop, which is nice since it's right around 50% of what I paid for it new with Yoshi's Island included.

I'm pretty sure Family Dollar is the same style of store as Big Lots, Ollies, and Five Below as in they buy left over lots of items from stores that closed/bankrupted/couldn't sell the items and then resell them at a discount. IIRC Family Dollar gets a lot of stuff that didn't move in J.C. Penny's It's not a particularly wonderful chain at any rate but yes it is all over Western New York.

Anyone into the River City Ransom remake that got announced in Japan? I think it got brought up in the other 3ds thread but not here. I'm leaning more towards just getting the NES port over holding out hope for a western release.
