Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity

Out of nowhere, Nintendo has announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a hack and slash title developed alongside Koei Tecmo. It’s out on November 20th for the Nintendo Switch and, as the name implies, will take place before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when the Great Calamity first struck. Check out the first trailer below.

Unlike the first Hyrule Warriors, Age of Calamity sees Koei Tecmo working much more closely with Nintendo. This would explain why the art direction, combat (which seems to implement the Flurry Rush) and enemy design resemble Breath of the Wild so closely. Along with Link, players will control Zelda and the four Champions, namely Revali, Mipha, Urbosa and Daruk.

Each has their own special abilities and will be carving through hundreds of enemies at once in order to stop the Calamity. The real question now is – With Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity on the way, what about the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild? Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
