During Koei Tecmo's live stream of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a new playable character was revealed. According to multiple translations, it's a "younger Impa", who originally appeared as a much older Impa in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo of America has also confirmed this on social media.

Meet Impa, 100 years before the events of The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild!

As a Royal Advisor and member of the Sheikah, Impa brings her unique abilities to the fight against the forces of Calamity Ganon. #HyruleWarriors
