Nintendo’s not ready to tell us more about the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but they’re fine springing a surprise prequel on us. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, due out November 20 for the Switch, is a hack-and-slash RPG set 100 years before Breath of the Wild.

Developed by Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force team, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity tells the story of the great calamity that’s mentioned over and over again in Breath of the Wild. Expect massive battles between the forces of Hyrule and those of Calamity Ganon, with heroes and villains fighting their way through hordes of enemies. Think Dynasty Warriors, only with Breath of the Wild characters and sensibilities. Characters include Link, Zelda, and the four Champions, playable for the first time.

Sounds interesting. I’ll play it, but I am a sucker for these sorts of games. Give me a mighty hero and the means to send dozens of enemies flying into the air and I’m a happy hack-and-slasher.

Yep, that’s the stuff. Nintendo will have more information on the game on September 26.

OMFG!!! I bought Hyrule Warriors every time it’s been released. I’ve put probably 500 hours into the Switch one alone and I’m still not even close to being done with 100%ing the Adventure Maps. And BOTW is my favorite game of all time, in my favorite series of all time.

You bet your ass I am buying this launch day. THIS IS AN AWESOME SURPRISE
