The Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity pre-order bonus is a ladle, but it’s not just any ladle.
It’s the Lucky Ladle.
According to the official item description, the Lucky Ladle can be equipped by Link and paired with a Pot Lid. It can also be fused with other weapons for stat boosts.
Ladles are commonplace in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and are often found near cooking pots. They can also be equipped as weapons, but are not especially effective in combat. It remains to be seen just how the lucky the Lucky Ladle will be.
But it looks souper, that’s for sure.
The Lucky Ladle is only available to players who pre-order the digital version of the game via the Nintendo eShop. According to the small print: “This item will not be immediately available to owners of the package version of the game, but may be offered as a paid item at a later date.”
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will be released for the Nintendo Switch on November 20, 2020.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
