Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

At least as things stand now, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo haven’t announced any DLC plans for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. However, it’s possible that new content could materialize down the road. After all, the original Hyrule Warriors had its fair share of DLC.

Although there’s nothing official yet, there could be some signs pointing to extra characters being added to the game. That’s based on a new datamine involving voice clips.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which released on November 20, has surpassed 3 million units sold worldwide as of November 24 according to an announcement from Koei Tecmo translated by Perfectly Nintendo. This is especially significant as it makes Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity the best selling title in the Warriors franchise to date. For comparison, as of January 2015, the original Hyrule Warriors surpassed 1 million units sold.

This week’s issue of Famitsu contains an interview with key members of the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity team. Producer Yosuke Hayashi and director Ryouta Matsushita as well as Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma answered a few questions about the new Switch game.

Famitsu asked about a few topics, including why a new Hyrule Warriors game was made themed after Breath of the Wild and whether Aonuma had any specific requests for the project. The magazine also asked about whether certain elements had already been established when it came to the characters and story.

Nintendo and Koei Tecmo came together for the first Hyrule Warriors, a spin-off of the Zelda series, back in 2014. They then collaborated on the just-released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Now that we’ve seen two of these games, some fans might be wondering if Hyrule Warriors could be its own dedicated spin-off series.

IGN recently spoke with Zelda series producer Eiji Aonuma as well as Age of Calamity producer Yosuke Hayashi, and asked whether Nintendo is considering making this its own standalone series to go alongside mainline Zelda games. The two developers said in response:
