On October 21, the Japanese Twitter account for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity revealed the character profiles for Purah and Robbie. Nintendo, Koei Tecmo and Omega Force revealed the two characters with one of the previous short trailers. The other ones so far teased a mysterious ominous-looking character, and another one focused on the Champions.

Here’s a translation of the profile for Purah (Purua in Japanese):

A Sheikah who leads the research of ancient relics. Purah is Impa’s big sister and Robbie’s colleague. She’s a brilliant scientist but can get absorbed a bit too much in her studies, dragging everyone else into her research.

In the original Breath of the Wild, Purah can be found in the Hateno Ancient Tech Lab of Hateno Village, where you can upgrade the Sheikah Slate.

Next up, here is our translation of the profile for Robbie in Age of Calamity (Roberi in Japanese):

A Sheikah researcher involved in the excavation and study of ancient relics. He’s the lead scientist on Guardian research and Purah’s colleague. Robbie has a Rock and rebellious mind but tends to get dragged around by Purah.

In the original Breath of the Wild, Robbie can be found at the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab, where you can craft Ancient equipment and items.

Why Ratchet & Clank is the Most Important PS5 Game

As a side , the December issue of Dengeki Nintnedo, released on October 21, has a feature on the game. Which shouldn’t include any new details but is still nice to own if you live in Japan and can easily grab it. Plus it has a really cool Fire Emblem Three Houses Dimitri card for FE Cipher, which just ended this October.

You can watch some Urbosa gameplay from Treehouse and some Link and Impa gameplay from Tokyo Game Show 2020. More gameplay was also revealed at TGS 2020, with Producer Yousuke Hayashi saying he’s really happy with fan reception so far.

Zelda Musou Yakusai no Mokushiroku / Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity will launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 20. You can preorder it on Amazon to support us.
