In yet another of its infamous 2020 shadow-drops, Nintendo has just lifted the lid on Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch. Set 100 years before the events of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, this sequel to the Wii U, 3DS and Switch original is being developed by Nintendo and Koei Tecmo, and is due to launch later this year.

Prior to the announcement, series producer Eiji Aonuma gave a short update on the status of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, which has to rank as the most eagerly-awaited Switch title so far. He notes that people are still playing the first title, and that the team is thankful for the support. However, he notes that in order to make "the vast world you enjoyed in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on its development, so you'll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates."

Many people had hoped that Breath of the Wild 2 would be 2020's holiday season smash hit, but it's looking more likely that it will be released at the end of next year.
