Age of Calamity: Pulse of the Ancients DLC First Impressions

On Friday (6/18), brand new DLC was released for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity! Nintendo Canada provided us with a code for the expansion pass. And now we have access to the first wave of DLC. Check out these first impressions of Pulse of the Ancients!


Welcome back Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity!

If you read my review, you’ll know that I liked Age of Calamity a lot. And now I’m back to playing it once again.
Nintendo Canada provided with the Age of Calamity expansion pass. The first part of which is out right now.

Pulse of the Ancients, right away, gives the player a new weapon and a complete new outfit to wear.


Also a new place to visit, the Royal Ancient Tech Lab, appears! When you go to the lab, you’ll be introduced to a chart that looks like a skill tree! This chart will unlock new things such as more weapon slots and some much cooler things that I do not have yet but can’t wait to get. I won’t spoil it!

To unlock things on the chart, you must collect items (everything from veggies to pieces of paper) and sometimes finish challenges. Its pretty neat and very involved. I have been fighting a lot of battles to get items and expect that I’ll be doing that a ton more.

Another thing that is introduced via the DLC is Vicious Monsters. These are harder monsters and you better look at your level and the recommended level before taking them on. You get lots of items for defeating them and this all helps toward the Ancient Tech lab chart.

I am so excited to unlock the cooler things on the chart such as…oh no…I’m not spoiling. I will leave this one thing I unlocked as a hint though:


Hmm. I wonder what thats about!

Excuse me, I have to go get some more items right. this. second.

I’ll try to have even more thoughts about this DLC very soon.

Thanks to Nintendo of Canada for providing a digital code. The Pulse of the Ancients DLC is available now on the Nintendo Switch eshop!
