Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the latest Dynasty Warriors spin-off. It takes players back to 100 years before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We already know that you’ll be able to play as Link, Zelda, Daruk, Mipha, Revali, Urbosa, and Impa. However, today the team gave us a better look at most of them in action. Plus, you’ll spot another familiar face. Check it out below.

 

The early parts of the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity trailer just shows off some classic Dynasty Warriors combat. We see a few different characters slapping enemies about with all kinds of different weapons. Then, fans will be happy to see an appearance from Hetsu. That big ole Korok was bound to be in the game, so it’s not a surprise, just a welcome addition.

After that, things get even more interesting. We get to see some of the characters’ more spectacular moves in action. Mipha can summon a frozen slab of ice to pummel enemies into the ground. Revali has an AOE bow shot that freezes and then does serious damage. Zelda has…a tank? Yes, that appears to be the case. Princess Zelda looks to be able to summon a tank that shoots bombs out at a somewhat worrying rate.

All told, it’s a neat trailer that gives everyone a better idea of what they’ll be getting up to when the game launches. Personally, I’ve never played a Dynasty Warriors game, and this might be my first. The idea of learning more about some of my favorite Zelda characters had me intrigued, and seeing some of the skills in action here is taking that interest over the top.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity comes to Nintendo Switch on November 20. That gives you just enough time to play through Breath of the Wild if you haven’t yet.
