Who would’ve thought that The Legend of Zelda and musou made such a perfect combination? We sure didn’t. Yet here we are with the sequel to the first Zelda musou game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, looking absolutely hype and pretty. This is also doubly exciting for Zelda fans because Age of Calamity is a prequel to the events of 2017’s stellar Breath of the Wild. Its events take place right before the world was ravaged by Calamity Ganon and as such expect to run into familiar characters, creatures and locales on the battlefield! We’re excited to see how the integration of the unique narrative and storytelling into the core musou gameplay pans out and hopefully, we get a story that’s one for the ages.
