Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition sees a sales boost of over 1,500% on Amazon

Because of Linkle, of course

Nintendo announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity earlier today, the follow-up to Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. Turns out there are still plenty of people who haven't checked out the Switch port of the Wii U original, and now they're looking to fix that.

Over on Amazon, you can find Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition in the 'Movers and Shakers' section. The title has climbed up to the sales ranking of 267 overall, which came from a 1,543% boost of where it was yesterday. Not only are people interested in Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, they're scooping it up quickly as well!

If physical copies saw such a big jump on Amazon, you can bet the same thing is happening on the Switch eShop. Let's see if it makes the top 20 this week!

Japan's Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Treasure Box Edition detailed

Let's hope we get this in NA/EU

Over in Japan, Nintendo is releasing a Treasure Box edition of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. This is a special version of the game that is priced at roughly $150, but it packs in multiple goodies. Inside you'll find a copy of the game, an acrylic art display, paraglider blanket, and a metal charm. Unfortunately, we don't have any pictures of these items just yet, but hopefully they show up soon.

Thanks to Sephazon for the heads up!

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.

Eiji Aonuma comments on Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2's development, hints at location

Back to where it all started

Earlier today, Eiji Aonuma was front-and-center for the reveal of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Before he revealed that title, Aonuma did comment quickly on Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.

“Regarding the Breath of the Wild sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates.”

The way that statement is worded does make it seem like Breath of the Wild 2 is going to take place in the same location as the original. There was some speculation that the game would move to another location, due to the scene in the reveal trailer where Hyrule Castle floats away. This comment from Aonuma certainly sounds like they'll just be adding to the current setting.

Koji Igarashi says the Zelda franchise inspired his work on Castlevania and Bloodstained

The man has great taste

Koji Igarashi has quite the legacy of games under his belt, creating some of the best Castlevania games in the franchise, and creating a hit sans Konami with the Bloodstained series. Now in a new interview with Limited Run Games, Igarashi says various Legend of Zelda titles helped inspire him with his creations.

Jeremy Parish sat down with Igarashi for a chat about his game design philosophy, which is where we find out how Igarashi pulled ideas from his Zelda experiences to create some of his many titles. In particular, Igarashi points out that Zelda games showing items in plain sight but out of reach until you gain new abilities really stuck with him, as did the fact that you don't need all heart pieces to complete a Zelda game, but you can hunt them down if you're looking for extra content.
