New Hyrule Warriors Screenshots Show Second Look at Champions
The Japanese Hyrule Warriors Twitter account has been showing off some really good looking screenshots of each Champion in Age of Calamity.
Of all the games we expected to get a sequel as part of Nintendo‘s holiday offering, Hyrule Warriors certainly wasn’t very high up on the list. The Zelda Musou game, which was originally released on the Wii U was seen as kind of a stop-gap for Zelda fans excited to get their hands on Breath of the Wild, so it’s only fitting that Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is meant to help fill in the gaps between major 3D Zelda titles as well.
The game is set approximately 100 years before Breath of the Wild and features the classic Musou-style gameplay that Koei Techmo is known for. Boasting the original Breath of the Wild‘s gorgeous art style, it’s only fitting that the developers would want to show off their handiwork.
The official Japanese account for the game (@zelda_musou) just released four screenshots, each one showcasing a different champion from the game. The account started posting the screenshots from the game on Monday, starting with a shot of Daruk and Link.

The next day, they showed off a shot of Mipha.

This screenshot shows Link and Revali presumably meeting for the first time. Breath of the Wild certainly made it seem like they had a contentious relationship, so it makes sense that they’re facing off in this image.

This final screenshot showcases Zelda with Urbosa, teasing that we’ll get to see the relationship they had in Breath of the Wild fleshed out a bit more.

None of these screenshots appear to be of actual gameplay but of the cutscenes from the game, which are sure to reveal more about both Breath of the Wild and its upcoming sequel.
Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity will launch on November 20. You can preorder it on Amazon to support DualShockers.
