If you took a quick time out throughout the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Catastrophe area these days’s Nintendo Direct to tweet snarkily about the brand-new Mario Celebration or excitedly about a brand-new Advance Dry runs, you may’ve missed out on a crucial statement: The Guardian from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is pertaining to Age of Catastrophe as a playable character.
