Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a hack and slash adventure that takes place 100 years before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Playing this game allows players to see interactions between our favorite characters from the Switch game including the Champions: Mipha, Daruk, Urbosa, and Revali, and even little baby Prince Sidon.

Unlike mainline Zelda games, which center around exploration and puzzles, Hyrule Warriors is all about button mashing and fighting hordes of attacking enemies. There is a new villain to learn about and new enemy types to encounter. It originally released in November 2020 and the Wave 1 DLC is already available if you want to jump into extra content.
