Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Latest Trailer Shows off Some Familiar Allies

Robbie, Purah and the King of Hyrule are ready to lend a helping hand.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is shaping up to be one of the Nintendo Switch’s biggest hits this holiday season. Originally revealed on Twitter at the beginning of September, the game takes place 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and reveals the events that led to Hyrule’s near destruction.

The game’s developers Koei Tecmo and Nintendo have been fairly forthcoming with information about the title, which releases this November, thus far. We’ve had plenty of images and information on the Champions of Hyrule, a further look at Princess Zelda and the reveal of Impa as a playable character.

Now, in their latest clip, Nintendo has offered a glimpse of some familiar allies who will be helping players on their adventure. Described as “critical to the fight against Calamity Ganon”, the characters shown off in the new trailer very recognisable to those who have played Breath of the Wild. 

The first two characters, Purah and Robbie, are researchers of Shiekah technology. Purah resides in the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab and Robbie within the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab. Within The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, completing a quest from Purah, for Robbie, would allow players to craft high tech “Ancient Equipment”. Purah, on the other hand, offers new runes for the Sheikah Slate, as well as upgrading some of Link’s existing ones. It’s likely their love for technology will play a part in assisting players on their journey.

The other ally teased is none other than the King of Hyrule. Little is known how he will assist, however, it’s likely he will offer some military firepower to battles.

Alongside the release of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Nintendo has confirmed that the notoriously difficult Champions Amiibo set would be getting a rerelease. Both the game and Amiibo will be releasing on November 20.
