While we eagerly await news for the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel, Nintendo announced earlier this month that it is delivering a prequel story by means of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Set a century prior to the events of Breath of the Wild, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity tells the story of the conflict that put Hyrule in the desperate state you experienced in the 2017 hit.
Today, Nintendo released a fresh trailer showcasing a few of the familiar faces you will be taking into battle in Age of Calamity. Browse the action-packed trailer starring Link, Zelda, and the Champions below.
On top of this, we surely got to see young Impa finally. You may recall her being much, much older in Breath of the Wild, however in Age of Calamity, she’s in her fighting prime, bringing her unique abilities as a royal advisor and an associate of the Sheikah to the battle against Calamity Ganon’s evil forces.
The trailer closes with news that players who pre-order the overall game digitally have the Lucky Ladle being an in-game weapon. Anyone who has save data from the Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild on the Switch will have the Training Sword being an in-game weapon. The trailer states that both these could possibly be released as paid DLC down the relative line.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches November 20 exclusively on Switch.
