Hyrule Warriors is among the best Zelda series spin-off games ever released, but it seems like Koei Tecmo is going to top the game with the next entry in the series, which is releasing very soon on Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo seems to have found some sort of appreciation for surprise announcement as it has announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity with a surprise announcement video which provided the first details on the game.
Set 100 years before the events of Breath of the Wild, the game will feature not just its visual style, but also many of the characters players have come to love as well as features and mechanics inspired by it, like environmental puzzles and more.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity finds plenty of inspiration from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – not just in its visual style. Many of the most popular and fan-favorite characters from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are playable, including Link and Zelda. In addition to hacking and slashing their way through swarms of enemies to defend Hyrule, players will also solve environmental puzzles, unlock weapons and skills, craft materials, visit shops to obtain items and use the power of the Sheikah Slate, which fans will recognize from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Zelda series’ producer also provided an update on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, announced during last year’s E3, revealing that it will take some more time to hear more about the game. Fans of the series, however, definitely have nothing to complain about, as Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity looks incredible and much more than your usual Musou game.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches on Nintendo Switch on November 20th.
