Nintendo rarely releases a The Legend of Zelda game, and although we aren’t getting a mainline entry soon, we’ll at least have a good spin-off. Those that miss Breath of the Wild will definitely enjoy Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity.
Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity will tell the story of the events that unfold a hundred years before Breath of the Wild. Players already know what to expect from the game’s story. However, a lot of things remain to be a mystery. This includes the heroes that will join Link and Zelda in the game.
The Four Champions
Since this is a Musou game, it’s already expected that there will be a lot of playable characters. Fans are hoping that there will be more than just Link and Zelda fighting off hordes of Bokoblins. Aside from the duo, it has been confirmed that the four champions of Hyrule are joining the battle.
The four champions of Hyrule are Daruk, Orbossa, Revali, and Mipha. These heroes represent one of the many races that reside in Hyrule. In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, these four champions have already passed on, but their spirit remains to help out Link.
They will play a crucial role in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as these heroes will help Link and Zelda. While they fail, the heroes do give it their all for the cause. Fans are hoping that these heroes will have the abilities that they give Link in Breath of the Wild.
Who else will be there?
Fans are concerned about the number of playable characters in the game. That’s because Nintendo is basing the game completely on Breath of the Wild, which in itself doesn’t have many characters. Some guesses say that the king of Hyrule will be a playable character. Some have also said that a young version of Impa will be available.
Alternatively, Nintendo can introduce new characters to the game. There’s not much to draw from the bad guys as it’s only Calamity Ganon that’s introduced as the antagonist. It would be better if Nintendo does introduce new characters to expand the roster.
Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity launches on Nov. 20 for the Switch. It’s one of Nintendo’s most exciting upcoming titles for the year. While The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 is still far off, maybe this game might fill the void.
