Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity New Trailer Reveals Playable Divine Beasts

The latest trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity on Switch reveals we can directly control the four Divine Beasts to wreck havoc.

October 28, 2020

On October 28, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo published a new trailer for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, revealing the Divine Beasts are playable. The trailer shows the players controlling Divine Beast Vah Ruta, Vah Rudania, Vah Medoh, and Vah Naboris. The four Divine Beasts are in the original Zelda Breath Of The Wild, with Link going to each one of them for reasons you obviously know if you played the game.

Sure, we already knew the Champions were playable. Mipha, Daruk, Revali, and Urbosa. However, the fact that we will be able to directly control the Divine Beasts in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, instead of simply seeing them rain destruction in cutscenes, is definitely a big surprise. Hyping up the game even more in my book. I’m incredibly excited now, and this has potential to be a really great game.


Note that a demo for Age of Calamity was simultaneously announced and released on October 28. The demo lets you play through the first chapter of the game. Your save data can be transferred to the full game as well.
