The Legend of Zelda prequel is here

November 20, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

The Legend of Zelda franchise is getting a prequel.

It is the first installment in the Zelda series since 2017's "Breath of the Wild," which sold 19. 7 million copies.

"Breath of the Wild" is the fourth best-selling game of all time on the Nintendo Switch, behind hits such as "Animal Crossing" and "Mario Kart. "

In "Breath of the Wild," gamers fell in love with the hero Link's adventures as he freely explored the world, cooking stews and avoiding giant lasers from ancient machines that crawl after him.

"Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity" producer Yosuke Hayashi told CNN Business that Nintendo "explicitly suggested" his team combine characters and story from the 2017 smash with the Hyrule fighting gameplay.

"Only bits and pieces of the story of the Great Calamity were depicted in the ['Breath of the Wild. ']," game director Ryouta Matsushita told CNN Business.

"Age of Calamity" brings back many characters and tells their stories a century before the events in "Breath of the Wild" took place.

"Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity" locks users into a map where they can select locales to engage in battles but cannot walk about freely picking fruit, solving riddles and making stews, activities that made "Breath of the Wild" a delight.

"While we're not sure how popular this game will become, we'd be happy if the Breath of the Wild fans found it fun. "

This won't be the last we see of "Zelda. " Last year, Nintendo announced "Breath of the Wild" will get a sequel, although no release date has been announced.
