Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may not have a large roster of characters like the first Hyrule Warriors game but it does have a fair number. If you don’t want spoilers I really do suggest that you turn back now because this is huge Spoiler territory that we are going into now. Still with us? Great, let us reveal the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Unlockable Characters!
There are two distinct ways of unlocking characters. The main bulk is unlocked by simply progressing through the main story. The other way is through side quests which will unlock characters that are not key to the game’s story. However, they are still relevant characters in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
To start off, I will break down the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Unlockable Characters in Story Mode and then we will continue with the Side Quest Character Unlocks. If you have yet to leave to avoid spoilers, this is your last chance.
