While it's cool to have new spirits again, it's a bit of a shame one of them is Impa. Well, the AoC version of her at least. Though I guess it's not a huge personal loss as I'm more of a fan of SS Impa, but either way, not sure where she stands now.

Will be eager to try out the spirit event later this weekend though. While having Sheik represent Impa again was obvious (as with the original OoT Impa spirit), it does further give credence for her working as a potential Sheik echo as well.

I really should play more Age of Calamity, it's a very nice game. Even if the story isn't official, it is well polished, and has solid game play and characters. Love Impa in it as well, she has a way more flamboyant personality than I would've expect.

Am still sort of hoping for a young Impa appearance in BotW2.

Yeah I finished the game, I know it's good. Is it possible to start a new game and keep playing your old safe state however ?

So what I've been thinking about... What if Impa would still make it in, as a deal for a sort of Echo Pack? You know, the Impa from Skyward Sword could potentially become just that, if the game is getting a remake. It could come as a package deal with games as Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, and Twilight Princess as a package deal, like we got for Mario a few months back.

If Impa had to function as a Echo, and we're allowed some :ultken:-like treatments, I could picture her like this;

Neutral B; Greninja Water Shuriken, but uncharged.

Side B; Greninja Shadow Sneak, or simply use the same Burst Grenade but it's now a Deku Nut. Obviously this means OoT Impa is now also an alt.

Down B; Remote Bombs? It would make sense for the leader of the Sheikah to be ahead with the technology..even if it's not completely canon. We saw worse! TP Zelda transformation to Post Sheik.

Would anyone be down with supporting this? Just for the sake to keep the support going...

well we dont need to stop talking just cause shes deconfirmed
That's true. But most of our discussion was about how to implement Impa from Age of Calamity into Smash. That was by far the most likely scenario for Impa to be included.

How well did Age of Calamity even do, sales wise? Anything comparable to the original game already?

We'll have to wait for Koei Tecmo to provide updated numbers but they did inform us a couple days after release that AoC had shipped 3 million copies. The original Hyrule Warriors barely made it to one million iirc (that's the WiiU for ya), so it's already better from the get-go.

Good News! (For me) I just finished Age of Calamity. 100% Map Completion! All Characters Maxed Level!

Only thing I didn't do was get each character's weapon maxed level. Seems pointless since it doesn't add to completion nor is it useful after the game is completed. I might play a bit more if we get DLC (we should).
