Koei Tecmo’s Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity is one of the big titles launching in November. The developers are giving us a closer look at what’s to come.
Since being the star of a Nintendo Direct last month, the Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity has been the hot topic not only for Legend of Zelda fans but also of gamers everywhere. The developers are taking us to a game tour before it launches over a month from now.
Champions in spotlight
The official Japanese Twitter account of the upcoming title shared a few screenshots of the game. The stills focused on none other than the four champions of Hyrule – Revali, Urbosa, Mypha, and Daruk. Aside from Link and Zelda, these four champions played a pivotal role in The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.
Instead of being the supporting cast, four champions are now going to be playable characters in the upcoming game. This is big news for fans that loved the characters who had their short time in the spotlight during the Ballad of the Champions DLC of Breath of the Wild.

Who are the four champions?
Since Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity serves as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, the champions will play an integral role in the journey.
The four champions represent the four domains in Hyrule. They also helped Link and Zelda fend off Calamity Ganon. Sadly, they fell, and their spirits were locked in the Divine Beasts.
Daruk served as an enforcer to Link. He saw Link as somewhat of a training buddy during their time together. Mipha is Link’s childhood friend, and the duo shares countless friendly moments seen in flashbacks from Breath of the Wild. Urbosa, on the other hand, serves as the steadfast mother of the group. Revali basically acts like Link’s rival.
The dynamic between the champions Link and Zelda was one of the highlights of Breath of the Wild. Fans are hoping to learn more about the champions and what else they do during the attack of Ganon on Hyrule.
Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 20. This will be the prequel of The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild. It’s a must-play for fans of Link’s most recent outing, and of course, it’ll be a big game for Musou game fans.
