Today Koei Tecmo released a sizable batch of screenshots and artwork of the upcoming Musou-style game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which will serve as a prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
First of all, we get to take a look at several characters who will appear in the game, including the King of Hyrule Rhoam Bosphoramus Hyrule (and Zelda’s father), Robbie, Purah, Hestu, and Master Kohga.
We also take a look at the Guardians and at quite a few gameplay abilities.
Ice Maker lets you freeze enemies while Electric Rod lets you electrocute them. We can find Koroks in the grass and use Magnet Catch to literally catch iron weapons in mid-air and throw them back at enemies.
Lastly, the screenshots show off ability to change equipment and weapons.
You can check them all out in the gallery below.
