Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Coming November 20


Set a century before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo announced today that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will come out for the Nintendo Switch on November 20, 2020.

In this title, Zelda fans will pay a visit to the time before the Great Calamity happened, taking part in battles in familiar Hyrule locations before they were destroyed. Characters making their appearance include Link and Zelda, along with the four Champions (which will be playable).

Gameplay is similar to that of the Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors games in that it is action-heavy. In it, players will perform combos and over-the-top special abilities,aiming for higher combos. In addition to this combat, players will also solve environmental puzzles, craft materials, unlock skills and weapons, visit shops for items, and use the power of the Sheikah Slate.

Note that a robust story that depicts the relationships, events, and dramatic moments of the Great Calamity in great detail will also be included.
