Hyrule Warriors Legends is an upgraded version of Hyrule Warriors for an inferior system. It features a new Adventure Mode story with a Great Sea map, a new customizable My Fairy feature, and characters from Wind Waker, plus Skull Kid from Majora's Mask, and the all new character, Linkle. Yes, Linkle. At least her character is better than her name.

Test Cutscene

Located in /movie/ are 5 files named KT_LOGO.moflex, OMEGA_LOGO.moflex, PRM07.moflex, PRM08.moflex and PRM09.moflex. All of these have the same cutscene, which is very barebones and was most likely used for testing as it is the cutscene used to show off the moflex encoder.

Rewards Map Items

Using the 3DS Powersaves reveals that there are items for the Rewards Map, but since all the bonuses are unlocked by default they virtually useless.

The items the Rewards Map has is the Compass, Bombs, Candle, Ladder, Power Bracelet, Water Bombs, Digging Mitts, Ice Arrows, Raft, Hookshot, Recorder, and Harp.

Placeholder Marin Portrait

Added in the v1.3.0 update is this character select portrait of Link with マリン (Marin) overlayed. Marin was added as DLC in the "Link's Awakening Pack".

Placeholder Fairy Clothes

Using a Powersaves 3DS to get all clothes reveals that there are eight placeholder shirts named Simple Clothes. They use the Kokiri Shirt design, but greyed out and with "Temporary" in kanji. They all have the effect "Fire Cost Down", but it's greyed out even for fire fairies. On the fairy they appear as a stretched box with the kanji for "temporary".

Unused Weapon IDs

The 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors omits the Challenge Mode from the Wii U version and as a consequence, both playable Ganon and Giant Cucco are not in the game since those two reside exclusive in that mode. Each of these characters have a unique weapon assigned by the game. The weapon IDs in HEX value are 6C & 6D which nest them between Tingle Balloon and Ganon Trident (the former ends in 6B while Ganon Trident picks up at 6E) in the game's save file.

If a 3DS version's weapons are copied into a Nintendo Switch save file without at least one weapon slot dedicated to Ganon and the Cucco (which wouldn't be in a 3DS save), the Switch version will either apply another character's move set to the Boss characters or crash the game. If the proper weapon assignment for Ganon and the Giant Cucco are added to blank weapon slots in the Switch version (based on the exact skipped weapon IDs from the 3DS version), the game will function properly.

The Nintendo Switch version is seemingly based on the 3DS version's save structure due to the inclusion of dual-element weapons, additional story missions, and a Fairy Mode not found in the Wii U version. The 3DS version's save structure indicates that at one point in development, the Challenge Mode was considered or it was simply a leftover from the Wii U version that was later reintroduced in the Switch version.
