Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Preorders Are Live

While Nintendo continues to work on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel, Zelda fans itching to get back to Hyrule can pick up a new game this November. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity releases November 20 on Nintendo Switch. It’s the second game in the Hyrule Warriors spin-off series, but it will actually tell a story that will be of great interest to Breath of the Wild fans. If that sounds up your alley, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is available to preorder now for $60.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, as the title suggests, deals with the lead-up to the Great Calamity. As those who played Breath of the Wild know, Ganon changed the foundation of Hyrule 100 years before Link awakens in Breath of the Wild. Age of Calamity will dive into the events that led to that fateful turn for Hyrule.

As a Hyrule Warriors game, you can expect it to be far more action-oriented than mainline Zelda games. If you played the original Hyrule Warriors or Fire Emblem Warriors, you’ll know what to expect here. These crossover games use Dynasty Warriors’ hack-and-slash combat as a foundation with flashy combos and droves of enemies to defeat.
