Link Returns To Nintendo Switch In Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity, Out Now
Experience a story set one hundred years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, out now exclusively for Nintendo Switch . See the game in action in the new Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – Launch Trailer (Nintendo Switch).
A century before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the Great Calamity occurred. Hyrule was plunged into darkness, devasted by an evil force which transformed the kingdom forever. While the Great Calamity is touched on in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, fans have never experienced what happened before that catastrophic event… until now.
Players will be transported to the time before the Great Calamity happened, participating in epic battles against a backdrop of memorable locations in Hyrule before they were destroyed. The game stars familiar faces from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild like Link and Zelda, as well as other recognisable characters like the four Champions, who will be playable for the very first time in the Hyrule Warriors series.
Focused on performing combos and over-the-top special abilities, the gameplay in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is fast-paced and strategic, perfect for players looking for an intense, non-stop action game with direct ties to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In addition, the game tells an in-depth story that depicts the events, relationships and dramatic moments of the Great Calamity in captivating detail. Players can also control massive, screen-filling Divine Beasts, using their over-the-top to find victory when used in their respective stages.
Nintendo Switch owners can get a taste of the game’s fast-paced action and dramatic cutscenes by playing the free demo, available now in Nintendo eShop. Progress in the demo transfers to the full game, so players can pick up where they left off.
