Get a first look at a few of the allies critical to the fight against Calamity Ganon in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, including the Sheikah researchers Robbie and Purah, and the King of Hyrule himself!
Finished the story. Like Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity heavily showcases Zelda's character evolution. Zelda is a unique case in the franchise as she's the titular character but not the main character, the point of perspective, or a playable character. In Breath of Wild, Link has more subtle character transformation and is vague enough to provide users with their own interpretations of how Link handles and process grief after waking up 100 years and then recovering his memories of the tragedies in the past, losing his companions in a war against Ganon.
Age of Calamity is a strange musou/Dynasty Warrior driven gameplay mechanic game as it only features Breath of the Wild characters along with new ones. It has changed the lore and mythos drastically from its predecessor's story where Zelda has undergone a 2nd transformation. We do get some glimpses of the characters and their successor champions but not as much details. Breath of the Wild hides its mythos in a myriad of NPC's testimonies, journals, and writings scattered throughout the lands of Hyrule. Age of Calamity does not have the luxury as it's a Musou game where most of its lore lies in the gameplay versus Breath of Wild's open world where its exploration has to uncover hidden narratives.
This game reminds me of Twilight Princess where Midna is the character that had the most evolution and she's is the main anchor of the game. Link is simply the vessel to push both Midna and Zelda to their quests and their character transformations.
Taka: It's a gigantic mech franchise. I haven't seen Macross myself. I know it's a big one.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
