Nintendo and Koei Tecmo are developing the successor of its Hyrule Warriors title from 2014 and it will also serve as a prequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will take place 100 years before the event of Breath of the Wild and playable characters will include Link, Zelda, and the four Champions: Daruk, Mipha, Revali, and Urbosa.

The hack-and-slash combat will have a new “robust story that depicts the events, relationships, and dramatic moments of the Great Calamity in captivating detail.” In addition to fighting off hordes of enemies in familiar Hyrule locations, Nintendo promises players will “solve environmental puzzles, unlock weapons and skills, craft materials, visit shops to obtain items and use the power of the Sheikah Slate” similar to Breath of the Wild.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will arrive on Nintendo Switch November 20.

The sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild still has no release date.

In other gaming news, Microsoft announced its new entry-level Xbox Series S.
