Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity brings back all the rosters entries you know from the franchise, and gives them some new twists for the second game in the series. The game takes place 1000 years before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild so expect some pretty insane stuff to happen. With the propensity for time travel and other chicanery in the franchise, who knows what could happen.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on November 20.
