Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity Reintroduces The BOTW Cast Starting With Zelda
Koei Tecmo will regularly reveal Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity character profiles via Japanese Twitter. Luckily we're here to translate it all, starting with iconic hero Zelda.
As you already know, a new Hyrule Warriors game got announced, Age of Calamity, featuring Link and the other Champions 100 years before the events of BotW. This is a Japanese game in essence, and by Koei Tecmo and Omega Force to boot. This means similarly to Atelier Ryza 2 Ushinawareta Denshou to Himitsu no Yousei, or Fire Emblem Fuukasetsugetsu, we’ll get ton of info till release from the Japanese promotional side. Some hate this, thinking it’s spoilers. Some love it. Like me. And I’ll be here to translate it all.
Moving on, it looks like the official Japanese Twitter account for Zelda Musou will be regularly introducing the playable characters.
The first character is our cool hero, Link:

Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity, Link.
“Born in a soldier’s family, Link is a young man who serves the royal family of Hyrule. He was gifted with incredible physical abilities and talent with the sword, but never neglects his training.”
The character profiles shared on Twitter will probably be added to the Japanese official site at some point. Maybe if we’re lucky we’ll get them officially translated soon and in English. In any case, we’ll be regularly covering those moving on now.
Following its sudden reveal, like pretty much everything else Nintendo announced in 2020, Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity will launch November 20. On Switch. The Champions’ Amiibo are getting reprinted too.
Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma also mentioned the sequel to Breath of the Wild is coming along nicely. Depending on how you interpret his words, he might have confirmed it’ll take place in the same world as the original. Lastly, Nintendo is reportedly planing a new Switch model and major games for 2021, so perhaps we’ll see it then.
