Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity

Nintendo has announced a surprise spin-off prequel to its modern classic Breath of the Wild, an action-focused game called Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. You’ll play the role of Link, as usual, but also the four champions and Princess Zelda herself, in attempting (unsuccessfully, as we know) to fight back the hordes of Ganon 100 years before the Switch launch title.

The game, clearly intended to tide over fans ravenous for the recently teased sequel, was developed by Koei Tecmo, which previously made the first Hyrule Warriors game as part of their long-running Warriors series of large-scale battle-em-ups. That one, however, was more of a Zelda-themed action game, very much in the old realistic style that Nintendo ditched for a more painterly, stylized one.

Age of Calamity adopts not just the new look, but the characters and setting from Breath of the Wild, meaning it’s a canon entry in the franchise and a direct prequel.
Coming out Nov. 20 on the Switch.

"recently teased sequel" i mean. "recent" in a cosmic sense, sure.

seems cool. i kinda wanted to see more of the guardians in botw so i guess this is one way of going about doing that.

i'm still holding out hope for donkey kong warriors though.
