Breath of the Wild Prequel Coming Later This Year

It makes the wait for Breath of the Wild 2 a bit easier

In yet another of many surprise announcements from Nintendo this year, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is getting a prequel in the form of a new Hyrule Warriors game.

Age of Calamity takes place 100 years before the events of the main game during the battle between the champions and Calamity Ganon. You play as Link, Zelda, and the four Champions: Mipha, Daruk, Revali and Urbosa. Regardless of who you play as, you fight through hundreds of familiar enemies from the main game in typical Dynasty Warriors fashion. The promotional image for the game features a new Guardian design, but its role hasn’t been announced yet.

To make things even more exciting, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity releases November 20. Digital preorders come with the “Lucky Ladle” weapon. The next news update for the game is coming on September 26.

You can see the announcement trailer in the video below.

Video games, films and books have absorbed my life for as long as I can remember. The love of engaging stories that these three pillars of my life provide through works like Discworld, Final Fantasy and a whole load of weird films is probably what inspired my similar adoration of writing.
