A new Hyrule Warriors title has been announced. 

Nintendo has announced Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Age of Calamity is a Dynasty Warriors - like title similar to the original Hyrule Warriors. Players will fight through droves of enemies as Link, Zelda, and the four champions of Hyrule: Mipha, Revali, Daruk, and Urbosa. It can be assumed that Age of Calamity will be similar to Hyrule Warriors and will feature a number of other playable characters. 

Age of Calamity will serve as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The game will take place 100 years before Breath of the Wild, and will tell of the struggle that brought Hyrule to its knees. The game will tell more of Zelda and the four Champions as they tried to save their kingdom from calamity. Age of Calamity will allow players to experience these events first hand, and see for themselves what happened. 

Age of Calamity was not the only bit of Zelda news that was revealed. It was also stated that players will have to wait a bit while longer for new information on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. The news came from series producer Eiji Aonuma himself (via GameSpot). 

"We mentioned in the June 2019 Nintendo Direct presentation that we had started development on the sequel to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," Aonuma had stated. "Many people around the world are still playing Breath of the Wild, so I'd like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. Regarding the sequel, in order to make the vast world you enjoyed exploring in the original game even more impressive, the team is working hard on it's development, so you'll have to wait a bit longer before we can provide more updates." 

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will release for the Nintendo Switch on November 20th. It has been announced that Amiibo of the four Champions, Mipha, Revali, Daruk, and Urbosa, will re-release alongside Age of Calamity
