If you purchase Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity when it arrives later this year and happen to have save data for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on your Nintendo Switch, you’ll unlock a bonus weapon in Koei Tecmo’s latest Musou-style game.
This information was revealed during the live stream for the game during the Tokyo Game Show earlier today. As detailed by Nintendo of America over on Twitter, this bonus weapon is a wooden Training Sword for Link.
As noted by Nintendo, this weapon may become available as paid DLC at a “later time”.
This isn’t the only item you can receive, either. As previously revealed – there’s a digital pre-order bonus. If you purchase the game ahead of its release from the Switch eShop, you’ll receive a Lucky Ladle item paired with a Pot Lid.
This item doesn’t come with the physical version of the game and may also become available as paid DLC later on.

Democratic norms are being stress-tested all over the world, and the past few years have thrown up all kinds of questions we didn't know needed clarifying – how long is too long for a parliamentary prorogation? How far should politicians be allowed to intervene in court cases? To monitor these issues as closely as we have in the past we need your support, so please consider donating to The Climax News Room.
