Our next ‘proper’ slice of news for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may well be scheduled to arrive later this month, but exploring Nintendo’s official websites has revealed little nuggets of info ahead of time.
While it wasn’t actually mentioned in the initial reveal trailer, Nintendo has confirmed that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will feature co-op play on a new webpage dedicated to the game. If you fancy teaming up with a friend to take on Ganon, you’ll be able to do just that:
Pass a Joy-Con to a friend and take on Calamity Ganon as a team in local co-op multiplayer. Fight side-by-side or divide your efforts to cover more ground, complete objectives, or defeat the forces of darkness!
A digital pre-order bonus has also been confirmed for both Europe and the US. It might not sound particularly exciting on the surface, but if you pre-order the game from the Switch eShop you’ll receive a Lucky Ladle item that Link can use in-game. We can’t imagine a ladle is going to persuade anyone who was originally on the fence, but there we are.
One of the weapons Link can use in the game. You can equip this for battle (paired with a Pot Lid), or you can fuse it with other weapons for stat boosts.
We’d take having the gorgeous box art on our shelf at home over this if we’re being honest.
If you’re looking to pre-order the game ahead of its November release, keep an eye on our guide which pulls together a number of different retail options for you to choose from.
Will you be picking this up next month? Was it the ladle that convinced you? Serve us a comment below.
