This week, Nintendo announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a prequel of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In honor of the announcement, @ArdaWigs on Twitter shared a cosplay of Urbosa, one of the four champions of the two games. Modeled by @Brown_Suga_out, the character’s wig was designed by the company. As for the Zelda-related cosplay, this is a near-perfect version of the leader Gerudo, from the costume and wig to the weapons. There’s even an image that captures Urbosa̵
@Brown_Suga_out drew this fabulous cosplay! A Morpheus (Rust Red) is the base with short textures (Rust Red) for the bangs. A Le Tigre (rust red) and a jumbo braid (cardinal) were used for the ponytail. The costume also includes Lumin’s Workshop Hard-Lite EVA foam.

In Breath of the Wild, Urbosa was killed a hundred years before the events of the game, along with her fellow Champions, Daruk, Mipha and Revali. His spirit, however, helps Link learn how to control the Divine Beast Naboris, so that he can finally defeat Calamity Ganon. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will reveal new details about the events that happened before Breath of the Wild, and will allow players to actually play as Urbosa, alongside his fellow champions. While this news has proved quite exciting for fans of the character, it’s also a bit of a double-edged sword; given the way Breath of the Wild begins, it seems the prequel will likely show Urbosa’s disappearance.
After the enormous success of Breath of the Wild, Urbosa and his fellow Champions received Amiibo figures compatible with the game. The figures have become relatively difficult to come by in recent years, but Nintendo has announced that all four figures will be re-released to coincide with Hyrule Warriors: Age of Magnet.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will be released exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 20th. You can check out all of our previous coverage of the game right here.
