Koei Tecmo has shared a new trailer of its upcoming Musou Switch title Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity at this year's online version of the Tokyo Game Show.
This two minute and 30-second trailer shows a little gameplay of each of the four legendary Champions. Here's Nintendo of America's official tweet about it along with some screenshots:
100 years ago, a group of brave heroes rose to become legendary Champions.
Experience the untold story against the forces of Calamity Ganon when #HyruleWarriors: Age of Calamity launches on 11/20.
As noted, the game launches on 20th November. What do you think of this latest trailer? Tell us down below.
Watched the TGS gameplay...and it's very much Hyrule Warriors. But it looks like they put tons of effort into the cutscenes and making it feel like Breath of the Wild which I appreciate. It's not low effort by any means.
Young Impa and the Guardian version of R2-D2 look like cute additions too, looking forward to seeing more
Oooooooooooo this looks great
Hey Revali, pride comes before a fall.
Blimey. This does look rather great!
That looks fantastic. I'll be placing my pre order today for a physical version.
I’m definitilly gonna buy this, tho not day 1 because the ps5 launches so closely. But I rather have had HW2 with playable characters from the gameboy colour and advance capcom zelda games and DS zelda games.
So excited! The gameplay looked great and the levels feel a lot bigger than the first game. I really hope there’s a way to just walk through them, because seeing things like the hyrule field tower rise out of the ground in the middle of buildings that you recognize as ruins from botw was amazing, and I just want to explore every difference in the way hyrule once was.
As upsetting as it would be to see, I hope they show the ranch's destruction.
Spotted : Princess Zelda sobbing. This truly is in the spirit of BotW and I'm living for it
@darkswabber well... um... the original already had those characters. It had wind waker zelda which was almost only in spirit tracks and the moveset was from it, toon link is in all three ds games, I'd argue they didn't have any characters from ds they needed. For gameboy games they had Marin but all the other characters were not iconic enough to join the game. And I will admit this: Vaati should have been in the game but he is from a gba and gamecube game.
@darkswabber same here, but I'm waiting until the ps5 digital is 200 dollars to buy it. I'm not buying this game at launch because im already picking up kirby star allies and pikmin 3 Dx lol
I always secretly wished that we would get to play in pre-war Hyrule as an add-on DLC for BotW. This is a mighty fine compromise. I only hope that we get >SOME< time to play around in the giant divine beasts before things inevitably go all calamitous.
Really, it looks great. Hyrule Warriors did a nice job telling a Zelda fan-fic with Warriors gameplay. This will hopefully be more of the same.
The frame rate needs to be more stable but OMG, this looks amazing. It's near interchangeable from the original Breath of the Wild.
I'm really looking forward to this, i never played hyrule warriors before. I get the whole gameplay it can be a bit repetitive but this looks good. Can anybody confirm if the combat is exactly like BOTW? Parrying is fun
Lady Urbosa looks like a boss and i'm all for it!!!
@Cyberbotv2 could you please comment more? Because it pleases me everytime I see your profile pic 😊
This looks so much more exciting than the first Hyrule Warriors. The BotW prequel story just seems perfect for this sort of game. I'm really looking forward to playing it. I think I'll start a new game of BotW right after I finish it.
I hope they don't mess up the art direction for the environments in this game. And I hope they vary the enemies in larger hordes a little more than usual.
@AmplifyMJ : Haha! Of course!
I just noticed that pre order bonus only comes with digital. I wonder why Nintendo went that route, otherwise it's no big deal. All I know is Nintendo has me reserving stuff, and I haven't done that in a long time.
The hype is real. Not day one, as I want to finish Xenoblade 2, but I’ll pick this up in the new year.
😱😄very excited. i was worried there would not be as much story as BOTW but it looks great!
"The fate of Hyrule is in your hands"
I feel like it’s criminal that this prequel is locked behind such boring gameplay.
@LUIGITORNADO button smash watch cut scene, rinse and repeat
Man o man.!!!!! This game grabbed me!
Great work guys will buy it day one.
This still doesn't answer if characters from past games will be playable outside the story or not... it's fully voice acted so I'm assuming no as of now, which is not a good thing. I know it's a BotW prequel, but if that limits the playable characters, that's a big problem. I'll wait and see until people actually get their hands on it, but I'm not sold on it yet.
And everything will be work out just fine right?.....RIGHT??!
Oh yeah! So looking forward to this game.
This game is really growing on me. I wasn't thinking about a second Hyrule Warriors game this holiday season but a lot of footage has been released and I am liking it more and more. I'm gonna pick this up for sure.
My little one got hold of the amiibo the other day and it had been a while since I tried to recall the Champions names. He asked each one and I got them ever so close, but ultimately very wrong...
Pretty embarrassing but at least some of them are from other games. XD
This game should have been a DLC for Breath of the Wild. Everything looks the same, just needs more enermies for a more action based game.
I hope it does include the characters from the previous Hyrule Warriors for post game stuff. Otherwise it would have a pretty small cast for a warriors game.
@LUIGITORNADO I’m not the biggest fan of these types of games - I’ve played Fire Emblem Warriors and it was okay.
However, I will give this a chance. The interconnection with BOTW is what I’m really interested in. Plus I think with Nintendo more heavily involved it could turn out as the best of the musou genre on the Switch.
When I saw the Urbosa secne where she defeated a bunch of enemies defending Zelda I thought it would be awesome to play as her. Awesome!
