Category: Breath of the Wild

Do you ever wish you could erase the memories of a game you loved so you could experience it as if it was brand new? I’ve found myself thinking this in the past with favorite games like Final Fantasy IX and Golden Sun. I may not remember specific details, like where to find a Piece of Heart or what a specific character says in a given scene, but I remember the overall story beats and character arcs. It’s an aspect…

With Tokyo Game Show 2020 taking place this weekend, Zelda fans far and wide were anxious to hear more about the much-anticipated Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. After the game’s surprise announcement earlier this month, TGS was the next big event for fans to look forward to, and it did not disappoint. Koei Tecmo’s Age of Calamity presentation aired early this morning, and we learned quite a bit about the game, from a new trailer, to a new character reveal, to…

Among the many things shown during Koei Tecmo’s presentation at Tokyo Game Show, it was revealed that having save data for Breath of the Wild on a player’s Nintendo Switch will yield a special weapon in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Confirmed by a Nintendo of America, Breath of the Wild players will receive a “Training Sword” weapon for Link in Age of Calamity. Although this is unfortunate for those who only played the game on the Wii U and…

As we learned from the game’s announcement trailer, our next update regarding Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is just around the corner — tomorrow, in fact! Admittedly, it’s anyone’s guess as to how substantial this news will end up being. However, considering that Nintendo made a point to mention the update so far in advance, I’ve got to believe we’ll learn quite a bit. Today’s question is simply this: what do you hope to see tomorrow? Personally, I’m eager to…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is arguably one of the biggest surprises dropped by Nintendo in years. While another Hyrule Warriors game seemed likely (the game had been ported to both 3DS and Switch since its original Wii-U release), most people weren’t anticipating the spin-off series to deliver a prequel to Breath of the Wild. In contrast to the original Hyrule Warriors, which was a more general love letter to the Zelda franchise, Age of Calamity is driving directly into…

Based on its announcement trailer alone, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity looks to have a fairly robust roster of playable characters. And though the four Champions are definitely intended to be the title’s main draw, I can’t help but wonder who else might join the fray. Throughout the story, we may take control of even more heroes and villains. Other characters, meanwhile, might only be playable in modes outside of the main campaign. Honestly, there are very few characters I…

Hyrule Warriors featured a lot of different types of missions. Some were escort missions, others were objective based until a boss appeared, and then there were missions that involved defeating commanders and then the enemy general. I would imagine that many of those missions would transfer over into Age of Calamity when it releases later this year, but I do hope that we see a few other types of missions. Knowing that the game is set in the world of…

Independent of the series’ stimulating gameplay, many games in The Legend of Zelda tend to add a little side enjoyment. Not all of the Zelda games feature mini-games, but the majority do, and that leaves us with hours of side content, and the nice incentive of earning some rupees along the way. Out of the 70-or-so mini-games offered across the series, each game brings something new; but which Zelda game brings the best? I’ve played several Zelda mini-games spanning across…

Although Breath of the Wild is one of the Zelda games that incorporates a lot of technology, the setting still feels more akin to the Middle Ages than current industrial eras of today. The Sheikah technology in Breath of the Wild has a distinct look that adds to the fantasy setting without detracting from it. It takes inspiration from modern times in reality through things like tablets, while still giving it an ancient feel. The developers made it clear that…

|| Previous Chapter || Chapter Five Hyrule Castle was bustling. No doubt it was preparing for the princess and Link to journey to Mt. Lanayru. I had not been the first to arrive at Hyrule Castle this time — that honor had gone to Daruk, who had quickly informed me that we would be accompanying the princess to the mountain.  “Is all of this necessary?” I asked the Goron, a little annoyed. “I guess so. We’re supposed to escort the princess…
