Yosuke Hayashi (producer), Masaki Furusawa (producer), and Ryouta Matsushita (director) appeared during the TGS digital event, and announced that the character Impa would appear as a playable warrior in the spin-off, 100 years younger than her appearance in Breath of the Wild.
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was announced earlier this month, with a Nintendo Switch release date set for November 20.
The game features a story set 100 years before the events of the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, which Nintendo says will transport players “to the time before the Great Calamity happened, participating in epic battles against a backdrop of familiar locations in Hyrule before they were destroyed”.
Nintendo says the title features fast-paced action gameplay with a focus on performing combos and over-the-top special abilities, as well as environmental puzzle solving, material crafting, and unlockable weapons and skills.
It will also star recognizable characters from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild like Link and Zelda, as well as other characters like the four Champions, who will be playable for the very first time in the series.
