Hyrule Warriors will get a free, day one content update, Nintendo has announced. The free download will add a new mode, a new weapon, and the option to select your own music while playing the game.

Nintendo also said that this is just the beginning of its plan to support Hyrule Warriors "for the long run with more content to help players expand their adventures even farther."

As Nintendo previously announced, if you preorder Hyrule Warriors at select retailers, you'll receive a free download code for a set of alternate in-game costumes for Link and Zelda. If you register the game with Club Nintendo you will also receive a free download code for a set of alternate costumes for Ganondorf. All of these additional costumes will also eventually become available to purchase from the Nintendo eShop. Nintendo said that it will announce timing and pricing details at a later date.

Hyrule Warriors will launch on the Wii U in Japan on August 14, Europe on September 19, Australia on September 20, and North America on September 26. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
