Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a game due to be released for the Nintendo Switch on November 20, 2020. It is co-developed by Koei Tecmo and Nintendo, and produced by Yosuke Hayashi. It was announced with a video presentation on September 8, 2020. A free demo - featuring the two scenarios in Chapter 1, along with a number of challenges and quests - was released on October 28, 2020
The gameplay follows that of the previous Hyrule Warriors games, with players executing flashy combo attacks in "one versus one thousand" style battles. The story takes place during the events of the Great Calamity, one hundred years before the present day of Breath of the Wild. It will have multiple playable characters, including Link, Zelda, and the Champions.
A DLC Age of Calamity Expansion Pass was announced during the Nintendo Direct of February 17th, 2021.
