Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Latest Trailer Teases Mysterious Villain

Master Kohga is making his grand return, alongside a mysterious cloaked villain.

Nintendo and Koei Tecmo certainly aren’t holding back on little snippets of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity information. Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve had the reveal of Impa as a playable character, a deep dive into some gameplay, including the Gerudo Champion Urbosa and a look at some of the allies who will be helping players on their journey.

With the game out for Nintendo Switch in a little over five weeks, the official Nintendo Twitter accounts have dropped another trailer on us, revealing a returning foe and a mysterious unnamed one.

In the trailer, we’re initially treated to another look at the Yiga Clan. The group of bandits have been seen across multiple Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity trailers, however, there has been little to no mention of their leader, Master Kohga. Until Now. Kohga was one of the more memorable boss fights in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The lead up to the fight saw Link creep around a Yiga Clan hideout, avoiding clan members, before reaching Master Kohga. At that point, the boss battle ensues and upon defeat, the great Master Kohga turns out to be a hilarious fool.

The trailer then cuts from the Yiga Clan in action to two members of the group bowing down to a mysterious cloaked figure. The camera then pans round to the face of this new villain before fading out, leaving no real clues on their identity. While the trailer doesn’t give any clues, Twitter has, as it always does, run rife with speculation. Some of the prevailing names that pop up are Yuga, from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Vaati from The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap and Twinrova, the twin witches, who first appeared on the Nintendo 64.

Trailers like this all help to add to the intrigue of the game and if they’re anything to go by, it’s certainly shaping up to be a good one. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches on the Nintendo Switch on November 20.
