Nintendo announces Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
The next Zelda-related adventure arrives on Nintendo Switch this November.
Nintendo today announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a new installment in the offshoot series that this time centers on the Hyrule that existed 100 years before the events depicted in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The surprise title will be released physically and digitally on November 20, 2020.
According to a press release, the game "stars recognizable characters from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild like Link and Zelda, as well as other characters like the four Champions, who will be playable for the very first time in the Hyrule Warriors series."
As you might expect, development is handled by the team at Omega Force and will focus on combos and special abilities used in a battlefield teeming with slashable foes. Action comes fast and furious, but with a strategic element, which caters to those who like their Zelda with a little more swordplay and a lot less exploration and dungeon crawling. Such people do indeed exist.
