Epona, het trouwe paard van Link uit Ocarina of Time, maakt zijn intrede in Hyrule Warriors. Eiji Aonuma heeft bekendgemaakt dat het ros als additional weapon in een DLC-pakket zal verschijnen. Deze Master Quest Pack zal 16 oktober verschijnen en bevat nieuwe kostuums, scenario’s en meer. Aonuma vertelde over zijn ervaringen met Epona in Hyrule Warriors:

“I already had a chance to try out Epona in the game. By riding Epona, I was able to blow heards of enemies away and gallop swiftly through the fields, and I had a lot of fun trying out this re-imagined version of her in Hyrule Warriors.

“In the Zelda series, players never had a chance to tackle bosses by galloping around them with Epona like in Hyrule Warriors, so I hope fans will enjoy playing as Zelda characters in a game with a different type of action than you typically find in the original series.”
