In an interview with Famitsu (via Nintendo Everything), producer Yosuke Hayashi discussed that there are plans to add more characters in addition to Tetra and the King of Hyrule to "Hyrule Warriors Legends."
I can’t go into details yet, but we plan to add new character(s) [can mean one or several] other than Tetra and King of Hyrule. There are fan favorites and surprising characters in the game, so I’d be happy if you kept guessing who will join the fight while waiting for follow-up information.
Development for the 3DS version of "Hyrule Warriors Legends" came about because of the warm reception the Wii U version received, Hayashi also explained.
That was after the release of the Wii U version. The Wii U version got a positive reception from people who played it, but as there are already many Zelda titles on the Nintendo 3DS, many Zelda fans said “I’d like to play this on 3DS”. The development of the Nintendo 3DS version took off from there.
Lastly, there were a few bits of news about the game he shared, such as a Spring 2016 release date, development being at 60% completion, and amiibo integration.
