‘Zelda BOTW’ prequel ‘Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity’ Switch exclusive coming this November

Nintendo has revealed the new game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity which is releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch this November 20.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is set a hundred years before the aftermath of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Nintendo added that the game will take players to the time before the Great Calamity occurred where they will be joining massive battles set in familiar areas in Hyrule before they were ruined.

The Japanese gaming giant also revealed that the game will feature fast-paced action-filled gameplay focused on completing combos, casting spells, solving puzzles, crafting materials, unlocking weapons, and skills.

The game will feature familiar characters from the Legend of Zelda games including Zelda and Link. For the first time ever, the four champions from Breath of the Wild will also be playable characters in the game.

In a video posted last Tuesday, Koei Tecmo producer Yosuke Hayashi revealed that the company has been working closely with Nintendo on this game compared to it had done previously.

Speaking in the same announcement video for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, Eiji Aonuma – the series producer for Legend of Zelda – told fans that they will have to wait longer for new updates about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2.
