If you are a gamer, it is a big possibility that you at least heard the game, Zelda. Zelda is one of the world’s most popular games by Nintendo. The latest title for the Zelda series was Zelda: Breath Of The Wild. And Nintendo announced that a prequel to Breath of the Wild will be published soon. The name of the new title is Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
The new Zelda game will be developed by Koei Tecmo and publisher will be Nintendo. The game will set 100 years before Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Like in the other Hyrule Warriors game, there will be different playable characters. And these characters will have different play styles. The players will be able to control Link, Zelda, and four Hyrule champions – Daruk, Urbosa, Mipha and Revali.
Of course, there will be puzzles in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. The players will still have the Sheikah Slate as their most useful and important device. Yosuke Hayashi from Koei Tecmo said that: “Unlike the previous Hyrule Warriors games, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was developed by working closely with the Zelda team in every step of the process, including gameplay direction, graphics, world, and all dialogue.”
