Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the latest game in the popular hack-and-slash series: Dynasty Warriors (Japanese: Musou). While the Zelda Team has previous endeavoured into the Dynasty Warriors hack-and-slash style of gameplay in the past with Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U (and the upgraded Switch port, Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition), Age of Calamity will closely tie into the story of Breath of the Wild rather than introducing a brand new story.

All BotW Characters are Playable

The Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity that will be released soon, is not the much-awaited Breath of the Wild 2. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is actually the prequel to the first BotW game, and can also be seen as a successor to an earlier game - Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition.

Unlike the first Hyrule Warriors game, where the game's canonicity is debated (and usually considered non-canon), it has been officially announced and confirmed by the Zelda Team (from Eiji Aonuma, Zelda Producer and Project Manager himself) that this game will be canon within the Zelda Universe.

The story of this brand-new game is set to be hundred years before Calamity Ganon reign all over Hyrule. As Aonuma revealed, the Hyrule Warriors teams and Zelda Teams are working closely together to ensure that the two maintain consistency. To see all the brave warriors fight until the bitter end, and watch the events leading up to the Great Calamity, this is a must-play game for you!
