It’s that time of year already, and the Tokyo Game Show has come and gone again. As usual, TGS served up a bevy of announcements and new trailers for some of the hottest games coming out of Japan in the not-too-distant future.
TGS 2020 was a little different, being presented as a series of live streams and showcases instead of a physical event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The games themselves, however, did not disappoint. Let’s take a look at some of the very best titles shown, in no particular order.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is the upcoming sequel to 2014’s Zelda-themed Musou, Hyrule Warriors. Developed by Koei Tecmo Games and Omega Force, Age of Calamity is a hack-and-slash that plays verily similar to Omega Force’s long-running Dynasty Warrior series, except with less Cao Cao and way more Bokoblins.
Set almost a century before the events of Breath of the Wild, Age of Calamity takes place during the apocalyptic rise of Calamity Ganon, and chronicles the last doomed days of the Kingdom of Hyrule.
We were treated to both a new story trailer and our first look at gameplay and you can check both out right here. Age of Calamity is coming exclusively to the Nintendo Switch on Nov. 20, 2020.
