Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity Expansion Pass Announced

During the most recent Nintendo Direct, the giants of the gaming industry announced an expansion pass for Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity, instead of what fans have been asking for – a sequel to Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild.

Nintendo only revealed that it would be hosting a Nintendo Direct a day before,     but even in such a short period, hype and rumors surrounded the event. A few leaks made their way into the internet before official announcements were made during the Direct, and even then, the lack of updates on Breath of the Wild 2 was obvious.

A sequel to The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild was first revealed almost two years ago at E3 2019. Since its moody and dark trailer made its debut, fans have been eager to hear more about the sequel to 2017’s Game of the Year recipient.


In a total curveball, however, fans of the Zelda franchise instead received an out of the blue revelation back in September 2020 Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity. Set a century before the events of Breath of the Wild, this Hyrule/Musuo crossover became the best-selling Dynasty Warriors title of all time, selling more than three million copies in just a few days.

For fans of the hack and slash gameplay of Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity, a new expansion pass has been announced during the most recent Nintendo Direct. Arriving in two separate “waves,” the expansion pass will include additional character stories, new challenges, new enemies, and an expanded roster, among others.

Those hoping to prepare their weapons once again against Astor and the forces of the Yiga Clan can preorder the expansion pass now, with bonuses of a new outfit and weapon for Link available beginning May 28. The first part of the expansion pass will be made available on June 2021, with the second part arriving in November 2021.

Many will possibly be frustrated with the scarcity of updates on Breath of the Wild 2. When Zelda series Eiji Aonuma showed up in the Nintendo Direct, he notified fans that more details on the sequel will be released later this year, but currently, there is nothing new to say. He did guarantee fans, however, that development is proceeding smoothly.

While this update is frustrating for those keen to step into a new Zelda game, they are offered the opportunity to play The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword once again, as an HD remake of the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch later this year.
