Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Announced As A Prequel To Breath Of The Wild (VIDEO)
It has been quite some time since Nintendo spoke about the upcoming Breath of the Wild sequel, but it would appear developers have also been working on something else for Zelda fans. Instead of the highly anticipated sequel, fans will first be receiving a prequel by the name of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
In a surprise announcement, Nintendo and Koei Tecmo Games revealed Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity as a prequel to the massively popular Breath of the Wild. The upcoming game will take place 100 years prior to the events in BotW. Player may remember hearing about the Great Calamity in the Switch title, but the inbound prequel will allow fans to experience the event for themselves.
As stated about, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will take place 100 years prior to the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game will provide players with an opportunity to see Hyrule before Calamity Ganon struck, assume the roles of Link, Zelda, other Champions, and more. Players will also be tasked with fighting off hordes of enemies, monsters, and more while attempting to save Hyrule. Needless to say, the title will offer greater context to what took place before Breath of the Wild, which will eventually lead us to BotW 2, whenever that may be.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is set to arrive on November 20th exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Keep it tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers as this story develops, and for other gaming goodness going on right now, check out the following:
