During Koei Tecmo’s live stream of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a new playable character was revealed. According to multiple translations, it’s a “younger Impa”, who originally appeared in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo of America has also confirmed this on social media.
Meet Impa, 100 years before the events of The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild!
As a Royal Advisor and member of the Sheikah, Impa brings her unique abilities to the fight against the forces of Calamity Ganon. #HyruleWarriors
Here’s a before and after shot, courtesy of a screen cap from Twitter user and translator BlackKite:
Nintendo has also shared some lovely artwork and screenshots of the character on its official website. Take a look below:

When he’s not paying off a loan to Tom Nook, Liam likes to report on the latest Nintendo news and admire his library of video games. His favourite Nintendo character used to be a guitar-playing dog, but nowadays he prefers to hang out with Judd the cat.
Sure looking forward to Ages of Calamity. Gonna start playing my second playthrough of Breath of the Wild soon.
Her attacks looks amazing. I hope there are more character reveals on the way! If not within the story mode in the (hopefully included) adventure maps! Future champs where you at?
From what I saw in the gameplay footage, it looks like more of the same from Hyrule Warriors. Not that it’s a bad thing. Day 1 purchase from me.
That’s cool. I’m glad they’re being creative with the approach to this game. I think It’s gonna turn out really well.
So cool that she looks like Paya, her granddaughter. Also, her fighting style is similar to the final boss Monk Maz Koshia, from the BotW DLC.
Doesn’t make storyline sense given this is 100 years in the past, but would love to play as Prince Sidon
@steizgr8 They can put him in but only for Free Play mode. He wouldn’t work in Story Mode.
@ZeldaFanboy78 No way considering Botw was already geared the waifu crowd plus just look at the new characters in the last HW.
This is great but where the heck is Kass? That’s the one we’re all waiting on, right?
Judging from the hair, she could also just be Purah. Remember that she made herself like a kid? She was older back in the day.
Update: Oh, but the pictured lady has a straw hat and charms, so it might be Impa after all. She looks cool by the way.
A pretty different take from the younger Impas we’ve gotten in past games but like that she looks so much like her granddaughter.
Yes! This is what I’ve been waiting for!The mistery around what she looked like during war was fun and fine in BotW but I’m glad we can know now.Excited to see what other characters are going to turn up, considering the last HW had, what, about 50 characters?
