Out of nowhere, Nintendo announced a Hyrule Warriors sequel earlier this week. The announcement was light on details, but that’s set to change soon, as Nintendo is preparing to show off more of Age of Calamity during an event on September 26.
Age of Calamity is set 100 years before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for which a sequel is also in the works. The game is being developed jointly by Nintendo and Koei Tecmo, and it’s scheduled for release on Switch on November 20.

In Age of Calamity, players will be able to take control of Link, Zelda, and the four champions of Hyrule–Mipha, Revali, Daruk, and Urbosa–and use their unique skills to cut through hordes of Ganon’s minions.
