At the end of the trailer, which shows the Lucky Ladle as a pre-order bonus for the game’s digital version, Link’s Training Sword is revealed to be another bonus weapon. Players who have a Breath of the Wild save on their Nintendo Switch will automatically receive the item, though its specific details remain unknown.

In addition to the Training Sword as a bonus item, the new Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity trailer confirms that Impa is a playable character in the game, as a young adult compared to her older appearance in Breath of the Wild.

Further confirmation of Impa as a playable character in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity comes from the gameplay video that Nintendo rolled out at the Tokyo Game Show 2020. The video is in Japanese, but it gives a good glimpse at what players can expect from the upcoming game.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will tell the story of the Great Calamity event, with Breath of the Wild‘s four champions, in addition to Link and Zelda, as playable characters. The game rolls out on November 20, exclusively on the Nintendo Switch.

What to Do When You Feel Lost in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the most open-ended game in the series since the original Legend of Zelda over 20 years ago. That game handed you a sword and told you, essentially, “good luck.” Breath of the Wild quickly gives you a multitude of tools, from bombs to a paraglider, but the message is effectively the same.

It can be easy to get lost in this dazzlingly expansive new version of Hyrule. Sometimes it can feel like the game is purposely withholding information -- like you could get where you needed to go, if only it would tell you where that is. And especially early on, you might just feel totally lost and unable to figure out what to do next. With dozen of hours of the game under our belt, we've experienced this feeling, and we can tell you that, no matter how confusing it seems, you can always find your way.

The best weapons in BOTW, and where to find them
the legend of zelda breath wild best weapons master sword 640x0

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most critically-acclaimed Zelda titles to hit shelves in decades, one that breaks radically from previous games in the series. In past Zelda games, Link would acquire a wide variety of special tools, such as boomerangs and hook shots, but would only use a handful of swords over the course of any given adventure. Breath of the Wild goes in the opposite direction -- almost every weapon has a finite lifespan and breaks after a certain number of strikes.

Part of the fun of this great Nintendo Switch game is going with the flow and working with what you find, since the weapon and the best armor you pick up in a given area are usually good enough to handle the local wildlife. For those times when you need something a bit more high-end, however, we've compiled a list of the best weapons you can find. Breath of the Wild is enormous, so this list is far from comprehensive. Rather, it's a selection of some of the coolest, toughest weapons that we've found in each category, plus where you can locate them. Keep in mind that weapons taken from defeated enemies or that spawn out in the world will respawn during the periodic Blood Moon events, but anything found in a chest is only available there once.
