Change Language Settings.png

This is a guide on how to change language settings for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch. Read on learn available languages, and how to switch both voice languages and text languages after starting your game.

How to Change Language Settings

Choose at the Start or in Options

How to Change Language Settings

Once you boot up the game, you'll be asked to select a language before you start the game. However, if you would like to change the language after you start the game, go back to the title screen and click on “Options.”

Options Menu
Switch between languages on the options menu!

From there, scroll down until you find “Voice language” and “Text language” and select your preferred settings for each one.

Available Languages

You'll be able to choose from Japanese, English, French, Canadian French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, Latin American Spanish for in-game voice dubbing and all the above plus Traditional and Simplified Chinese and Korean for in-game text.

Japan Copies of Age of Calamity Are Language Locked

Region Locked Settings

If you'd prefer hearing the Japanese dub while reading in-game text in English, be sure to grab a copy from North American retailers instead of the Japanese ones. Unforunately copies of the game purchased from the Japanese eShop (as well as physical copies bought in Japan) will not allow you to switch to English or other languages. However, North American versions of the game will allow you to switch to Japanese, and the aforementioned languaes, for both text and voice.

While the reason is unclear, our guess is that the game is published by different companies for each region (Nintendo for North America and Koei Tecmo for Japan), which might cause problems for using the English dub in Japan. This was also true in the Japanese release of Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition, where Japan-purchased copies only gave the option to switch between three languages (Japanese, Chinese, and Korean)
