Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity announced, taking place100 years before Breath of the Wild (releases November 20th, 2020)

Tagged games:

A new Nintendo Warriors was to expect, but this one turned out pretty cool. Normally Warriors is a bit loose in focus on a story, but here they are already constrained through Breath of Wild. While this limits the number of heroes and enemy types you will encounter, it might be a new step for a Warrior game. I expect this to become a new best-selling Warriors. And so soon. I can't wait.

Also, pretty much everything Nintendo does got leaked before, but this one stayed secret.

Never liked Hyrule Warriors, it was a subpar game. But linking it (pun not intended) to BOTW's backstory gets me much more interested.

It did? What except for Super Mario 3D All-Stars got leaked?



So a prequel to Breath of the Wild, that's cool. Maybe we can finally walk through Castle Town.

However, is this digital only? That would, to say the least, s*ck.

Do anyone know how many copies of Hyrule Warriors were sold on Wii U and on Switch? Just to get an idea for this game.
It doesn't look like it could push HW sales during the holiday quarter IMO

VGC has the following sales figures:

HW WiiU: 1.26 million

HW 3DS: 0.49 million

HW Switch: 0.46 million

As VGC stopped tracking sales 2019, the Switch-sales may be a bit higher by now, how much is hard to guess. I don't know any shipment figures.

It isn't. Just has a preorder bonus on the digital edition but that is only timed.

We know that Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U sold just above 1 Million units. There are no official numbers on how much it sold on the Switch, however all Koei Techmo said was that the Switch version sold "above expectations" so they were probably happy with the sales on Switch. However, I would assume Hyrule warriors on the Switch barely got to 1 million sold and maybe less since nothing official was said.

While those sales may be laughably low for Nintendo standards, it's important to keep in mind that Hyrule Warriors was on the dead Wii U and essentially a low-effort Dynasty Warriors game with a Link skin on it, to many it didn't feel like a Zelda game. However, it was still able to sell more than 1 Million on a 13M Wii U. I'm sure this game has the potential to sell so much more since it seems like this game from the ground up was meant to be a prequel to BOTW twisted with Dynasty Warriors, it looks like Zelda BOTW, it has stories and characters from BOTW. I'm sure many BOTW fans will go crazy over this knowing it's made as a prequel, even if it isn't a true Zelda game.

No. What gave you that idea?

Nintendo even state that the digital bonus item would not be immediately available to owners of the packaged game.

For some years now many rumour turn out true, like new switch models and games.
