Scientists for the win
In the lead-up to Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, I’ve spent a lot of time recounting my journey through its The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, trying to figure out which character from that game could make an appearance in this new one. Since its announcement, Robbie has been at the forefront of my mind. This eccentric inventor played a pivotal role in my victory over the Calamity Ganon with the Ancient Arrows I’d get from his Akkala Ancient Tech Lab.
I’ve been waiting for him to make an appearance in a trailer, and just this morning, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo dropped a new, quick snippet of the upcoming Musou showcasing Robbie and Purah, another Sheikah scientist who, admittedly, I forgot existed.
No word yet if either Purah or Robbie, or even the King of Hyrule who’s also featured in the trailer, will be playable. But at the very least, this cast is of supporting characters is growing. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will launch November 20 on Nintendo Switch.
