Young Impa spotted in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

De-age of Calamity

Impa plays quite a role in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, helping to guide Link to his ultimate destiny. That's why it should be no surprise that she's popping up in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as well.

In today's reveal trailer for the game, there are two instances where you can spot Impa. As this story takes place 100 years ago, Impa isn't going to have the same elderly appearance that she does in Breath of the Wild. There's no doubt she'll be young here, but Nintendo and Koei Tecmo are keeping her face a secret for now.

You can check out a full breakdown of her appearance in the game and what it means below.


I can see her and the King being playable and bringing the playable characters up to 8

Friendly reminder that they already have a calamity-era voice actor for Purah.

I'm thinking Purah and that old Sheikah man (forgot his name) will be playable too... also, one of the OCs will be the Yiga clan leader...

Robbie is his name. There's also that Sheikah court poet that we only heard about.

Also, if they want an analogue for Linkle (which I'm pretty certain they will, though hopefully with a better name) then this is still floating around. https://imgur.com/a/CCNgkBf

So we could already be up to 12 characters... not counting any possible new ones. That combined with Link using different weapons is more than enough Smile

One part of me really doubts the Poet showing up, the other part of me thinks he would make a very good Sheik analogue.

Also, Zelda has at least 2 moves sets as well. Cover art has her using Goddess powers which will probably revolve around the Bow of Light. Sheikah Slate is of course in the trailer.

Hetsu BETTER be playable.

His name was Robbie? No wonder I forgot it... it's too normal sounding. And what's wrong with Linkle's name? Plus, would she still be "Linkle" if the changed her name? Speaking of reincarnated characters; Tingle... they need to bring him back too.

Give her her own name so she can be her own character, rather than what sounds like the first word that popped into their minds for a genderbent Link. She would also certainly be different if she were actually Link's sister like in the concept art.

...Linkle is her own character... being inspired by a different character doesn't change that...
