Tokyo Game Show has come and gone, and some questions were answered while others remained in a state of limbo depending on what they were hoping to hear. Everyone has been dying to hear one piece of news since the game was mentioned in early September was whether or not Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will have a special edition.
Age of Calamity, firmly entrenched after the events of Hyrule Warriors but before the events of Breath of the Wild, will feature Dynasty Warriors-esque gameplay. It’s not surprising seeing as Koei Tecmo Games, the team behind Dynasty Warriors, has their hands in the development of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Think of Breath of the Wild but more focused on combat (if that’s even possible).
Of course, any Zelda fan doesn’t care what the game is about as long as they can get their hands on a special edition. Link could spend the entire time collecting herbs with no combat at all, and they would shovel money into Nintendo’s pockets.
Fortunately, for those fans, a Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity special edition will come in the form of a treasure box. Yes, a treasure Box edition of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will include box art, a full-sized blanket with the pattern of Link’s parasail, the cute little robot that was featured in the trailer that the internet fell in love with.
Unfortunately, this Treasure Box edition of the Age of Calamity has only popped up on Japanese websites for those collectors. That means those waiting for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity are either going to have to pay an exuberant cost for shipping, or they’ll have to go to Japan themselves to pick it up.
With everything that’s going on in the world right now, the latter doesn’t seem to be a good option, but people have done crazier things for special editions of games.
