Urbosa and Impa also receive more combat gameplay.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was featured on Nintendo’s recent Treehouse Live with nearly about 24 minutes of gameplay showcased. It has more combat with Link, the world map and different weapons and armor that can be equipped. However, it also sees Urbosa and Zelda in action.
This marks the first time that Zelda is really playable in the franchise, though she’s mostly relying on various Runes from the Sheikah Slate to get by. Runes can be used by other characters as well to stop enemies, bomb them and so on. Around the 22 minute mark, we also get to see more of young Impa and her abilities in battle.
It’s interesting to look at the map as well which takes several notes from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild but smaller in size and scale. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is out on November 20th for the Nintendo Switch. It takes place 100 years before the Great Calamity as Link, the Champions, Zelda, Impa and many other characters fight to stop it.
