Story Trailer Drops for 'Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity' Game
Nintendo dropped a new trailer for video game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity on Saturday, the prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
The two-and-a-half minute trailer teased, "100 years ago, a group of brave heroes rose to become legendary Champions," showing young Link's journey in learning how to defeat different creatures and the power of the divine beasts. The game is set before the events of Breath of the Wild.

Producer Eiji Aonuma revealed the game during a Nintendo Direct presentation in September, sharing that players will get to experience the great calamity, an event that threatened the kingdom of Hyrule and resulted in a long slumber, which is partly shown in the first game.
Players will be able to play as both Link and Zelda and experience the story through combat gameplay and cut scenes of Zelda's past and the four champions, a set of characters who bitterly fought in the attack of Calamity Canon.
Breath of the Wild is the best-selling game in the Zelda franchise, first launched in 1986.
From Nintendo and KOEI Tecmo Games, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity releases on Nov. 20. View the new trailer below.
