Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may not be the Breath of the Wild sequel Zelda fans have been waiting for, but it will be a game they will appreciate nonetheless, judging from the very first review of the game.
Japanese magazine Famitsu reviewed the soon to be released game in its latest issue, scoring the game a 36/40. This score is among the highest awarded to a Nintendo Switch game by the Japanese publication, with excellent games like Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition and Paper Mario: The Origami King receiving the same score earlier this year.
As reported by VGC, the Famitsu Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity review praised the gameplay and combat style variety as well as the blend of elements from Zelda Breath of the Wild and the Dynasty Warriors series.
While limited in scope, the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity playable demo already highlighted the game’s best features, so it’s definitely good to know that the game fully delivers on its promises.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches on November 19 worldwide.
