A new trailer for the upcoming video game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity released today, and it shows off new looks at characters that should be familiar to anyone that played through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Because the new Hyrule Warriors title takes place 100 years prior to the events of Breath of the Wild, however, characters like the Sheikah researchers Robbie and Purah look a, uh, little different than they have in the past. Or, rather, the future.
The trailer also includes a look at the King of Hyrule as well, but it's Robbie and Purah that stand out the most. Given the setting, it begs the question: who else could we possibly see show up with an extremely youthful appearance? When it comes to the Hyrule Warriors series, it feels like just about anything is possible.
