As a prequel story to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Koei Tecmo and Nintendo’s Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity finally gives us the chance to play as other characters in this world. Nothing against the lovely Link, of course, but the world of Hyrule is filled with many colourful characters, so the opportunity to step into their shoes and kick some bokoblin butt is very welcome.
Below we’ve listed every playable character you can unlock in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Every single one is unlocked through normal play, and on any difficulty level, so you’ll get the lot of them eventually if you just keep playing (it took us around 60 hours to unlock the 18th and final fighter).
We’ll update this gallery/guide with more information on each fighter soon, but in the meantime feel free to enjoy the artwork below.
SPOILERS! Although there are no specific story details below, we’ve listed the character names in the contents, so we recommend you don’t scroll any further if you want to save the surprise! There are a few rather unexpected combatants, and we’d wager we’ll see even more in DLC (which is surely in the works). If any fighters are added, you can be sure they’ll appear below, too.
