Not the Zelda announcement we were expecting, but still a welcome surprise. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a new entry in the Koei Tecmo developed spin-off series, taking place a century before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
From the music to the cel shaded visuals, it’s clear that this second Hyrule Warriors game is sticking closely to the source material. While this probably means that there wont be anything too crazy compared to the first game, Age of Calamity should help to expand the world of Breath of the Wild.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches for the Switch on November 20. A teaser site is now available, detailing the digital pre-order bonus Lucky Ladle. According to the site, this item “may be offered as a paid item at a later date”.
