Legend of Zelda fans have been awaiting news on the Breath of the Wild sequel teased at E3 2019. So far nothing else has been provided regarding the game. But not to fret, another Zelda game is coming. Nintendo uploaded a trailer for a new Legend of Zelda game: Set during the Age of Calamity 100 years before the events of Breath of the Wild.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity The game is to be released on November 20th, with pre-ordering available on the Nintendo e-Shop right now for $60.
Producer Eiji Aonuma announced that Koei Tecmo are working closer with the Legend of Zelda team than ever before. Age of Calamity will follow the stories of Link, Zelda and the champions during the war with Calamity Ganon. As for BOTW 2, the production team is working hard and we’ll have to continue waiting for more updates.
The trailer showed parts of the story and, being a Warriors game, confirmed that the champions, Zelda and Link are playable. Combat mechanics such as flurry attacks and the Sheikah Slate mechanics are returning. Returning enemies include the Yiga Clan and the various Mobs from Breath of the Wild. Age of Calamity aims to please fans of both the Warriors games and Breath of the Wild.
It isn’t farfetched to say that Age of Calamitymight also provide some foreshadowing as to what the Breath of the Wild sequel could offer if we don’t get any new trailers for it.
