The playful little Koroks are no strangers to hiding, even 100 years in the past. One of the many aspects of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity‘s gameplay will involve environmental exploration. The Hyrule Warriors Koroks will be disguised among the battlefields‘ items, as featured in the gameplay portion below:
It’s unclear if there will be 900 to find like in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild or what their purpose will be in the final release.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will launch exclusively on Nintendo Switch on November 20, 2020. GameStop has a pre-order bonus with a Mysterious Guardian keychain; digital pre-orders on the eShop give players a Lucky Ladle in-game as a weapon.
