Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity releases this week worldwide, but Japanese magazine Famitsu had the chance to try out the game before release, reviewing the game in last week’s issue.
A few hours ago, the good folks at Nintendo Everything provided a full English translation of the review, providing additional details. You can read the full translation by heading over to Nintendo Everything.
Amemiya: While this game has aspects of a Musou-style game, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is essentially an action battle version of Breath of the Wild. Although the game is not exactly open-world, you can still enjoy the aesthetic of Hyrule while fighting across the well-designed battlefields. Age of Calamity also recreates the fun of “expanding the world” from Breath of the Wild with a system where you use familiar items obtained in battle to unlock various locations on the map.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is among the Famitsu highest-rated Nintendo Switch games. The game received a 36/40 score, which puts it on the same level as the excellent Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and Paper Mario: The Origami King.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches this week on Nintendo Switch. A playable demo is currently available for download from the Nintendo Switch eShop. Progress in the demo can be carried over to the full game.
