Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will be the prequel to Breathe of the Wild.

Another Dynasty Warrior-like spin-off to the Legend of Zelda series is coming to the Switch. Developed by Koei Tecmo, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will tell the event 100 years before the BOTW plot. Additionally, the game will be out on November 10, 2020.

Therefore, the game will let players play through the Age of Calamity in detail and know how it brought down the destruction of Hyrule. Nobody saw it coming, but it was a very exciting plot.

As the usual Dynasty Warrior and, therefore, previous Hyrule Warrior, players can play various characters, each with their skills and abilities. Hence, unique playstyles. They are  Link, Zelda, Mipha, Revali, Daruk, and Urbosa.

Furthermore, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will offer some adventure elements, like exploring and puzzle-solving, along with the usual hyperintense combat.

Players will be using the Sheikah Slate to solve problems.

Age of Calamity’s producer, Yosuke Hayashi, has said they’ve collaborated with the Zelda team while making this game. Hence, players will experience a close connection with BOTW.

 “Unlike the previous Hyrule Warriors games, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was developed by working closely with the Zelda team in every step of the process, including gameplay direction, graphics, world, and all dialogue,”

Yosuke Hayashi

Even though Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is not the orthodox Legend of Zelda game nor the awaited sequel, the game will tell a thrilling and grim story. Therefore, be sure that there will be plenty of tear-jerking moments.

The game and setting look mind-blowing and will provide good hype for the BOTW sequel, which is not coming anytime soon. Regarding this, series producer Eiji Aonuma has said, “wait a bit longer”.
