The battle for Hyrule’s future unfolds on November 20th.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is set to release on November 20th and to prepare for the same, Nintendo has released a new launch trailer. It includes Princess Zelda rallying the troops, the Champions preparing for battle and of course, Link. Check it out below.
As a Musou-style game developed by Omega Force, Age of Calamity takes place 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Players face off against hordes of foes as either Link, Zelda, one of the Champions and even Impa, unleashing special attacks, Runes and whatnot. Even the Divine Beasts come into play, raining down destruction with ease.
But despite its hack and slash-focused gameplay, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity does maintain several facets of its predecessor. You can still cook and eat meals for buffs, fast travel across different regions via the Sheikah Towers and unleash Flurry Rush for a quick burst of damage. The game is out on Nintendo Switch this Friday – stay tuned for more details in the coming days.
