Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Gameplay Will Debut at Tokyo Game Show This Month

On September 26, to be precise.

After a brief unveiling last week, we're in store for more information about Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity pretty soon. Nintendo and Koei Tecmo recently announced that gameplay for Age of Calamity will debut at Tokyo Game Show 2020 Online later this month.

Over on the Tokyo Game Show 2020 website, Koei Tecmo has a presentation due on Sept. 26 as part of the online showcase (thanks, Gematsu). The first half of the showcase will be dedicated to Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends and the Secret Fairy, while the second half will show off Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.

This will be the first time we've seen live gameplay of Age of Calamity since it was announced earlier this week. Hopefully we'll get to see Link, Zelda, and the four Hyrule Champions in action together, which we glimpsed briefly in the reveal trailer.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is a musou spin-off developed in partnership between Nintendo and Koei Tecmo. The game depicts the events preceding The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, where Link, Zelda, and the forces of the Kingdom of Hyrule tried in vain to prevent the rise of Calamity Ganon. If you're familiar with the story of Breath of the Wild, you can be pretty sure this is going to be an emotional rollercoaster.

Age of Calamity releases on Nov. 20, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. While revealing the new game, a Breath of the Wild 2 producer reassured fans that the sequel was still in development, and that news on the highly anticipated game won't be coming for "a bit longer."
