On October 22, the Japanese Twitter account for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity revealed more character profiles, this time for the King of Hyrule, Hestu, and Kohga. Nintendo, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force has been revealing more and more characters like this through short trailers. The ones so far teased a mysterious ominous-looking character, and another one focused on the Champions.

First off, here’s our translation of the profile for the King of Hyrule:

The king of Hyrule Kingdom and Zelda’s father. His full name is Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule. He leads his kingdom in the war against the Calamity in order to make the world peaceful again.

Next, we have the profile for Hestu (Pokkurin in Japanese):

Hestu is the musician of Korogu Forest, who loves dancing. He always carries his beloved Maracas, which contain Korogu fruits. His Maracas dancing holds a mysterious power.

In Breath of the Wild, this weird Maracas person can upgrade your inventory space.

Lastly we have the leader of the Yiga Clan, Kohga:

Kohga is the leader of the Yiga Clan. He spends all his time sleeping, leaving the fighting to his subordinates. And yet for some reason all the clan members admire him.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

Kohga also appears in Breath of The Wild. Meaning he was over 100 years old in that game.

There you have it, translated profiles for the King, Hestu and Kohga in Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity.
