The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sequel

Nintendo recently announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a new hack and slash title developed with Koei Tecmo that serves as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Of course, this led to the obvious question – what about the actual sequel? Series producer Eiji Aonuma actually addressed this in the announcement video for Age of Calamity. Check it out below.

Around the 15 second mark, Aonuma states, “Regarding the sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you’ll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates.” While this doesn’t necessarily narrow down the release window, it seems to indicate that the sequel is farther off than initially believed. Either way, don’t expect to play it this year.

As for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, it’s out on November 20th for Nintendo Switch. Along with Link, players can control Zelda and the four Champions, battling against the forces of darkness to halt the Calamity. Koei Tecmo has worked closely with the development team on every single aspect, which should make for a more inherently Zelda-like experience. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
