Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Datamine Reveals Playable Roster, Including Ganon, Impa, Hestu, And More

During yesterday’s surprise Nintendo Direct a new demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity was announced and immediately made available in the Switch eShop. This was great news or fans of crazy Dynasty Warriors-esque action and Zelda lore as they would get to have a taste of this prequel prior to its upcoming November release date.

Well, it turns out that it was great news for dataminers as well. They’ve been going to town on the demo looking for any possible secrets hidden within the code. Sure enough, they’ve managed to uncover what may be the entire playable roster of characters.

(Warning: This list may contain spoilers for the story of Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity.)

If the information that the dataminers have managed to unearth is correct, then you may be able to beat up Bokoblins with these characters:

  • Link
  • Impa
  • Zelda
  • Urbosa
  • Mipha
  • Revali
  • Daruk
  • King Rhoam
  • Hestu
  • Riju
  • Sidon
  • Teba
  • Yunobo
  • Great Fairy
  • Master Kohga
  • A Monk
  • Mini Guardian
  • Ganon

That’s a pretty large cast. We already knew that we’d control some of these characters like Urbosa or a much younger Impa. But dataminers have managed to find player icons for everyone on this list. That might not be definitive proof that each one of these characters will be playable, but it seems to imply that you’ll be able to play as beloved Zelda mainstays such as Mini Guardian or the highly popular “A Monk.” All kidding aside, getting to wreck fools as Ganon does sound like good old fashioned fun.

It seems like Nintendo can’t catch a break when it comes to dataminers these days. The infamous Gigaleak that happened this past summer managed to reveal several of their closely guarded secrets. It’s hard to say what’s changed for the company, but they’ve gone from the Fort Knox of video games to a leaky ship full of holes.

Luckily for Nintendo, Zelda fans may be even more enticed to purchase Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity based on this leak. The mere announcement of this sequel caused the original game’s sales to skyrocket on Amazon. So getting to play as Impa or Hestu could be enough of a draw to send preorders through the roof. Who wouldn’t want the chance to play as a giant dancing tree-man?

We’ll find out for sure if this the full playable roster when Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity releases for the Nintendo Switch on November 20th.
