There are days when the reports roll over themselves: A leak on Microsoft's Xbox Series is making the rounds, the Redmond-based company feel pressured Xbox Series S to be officially confirmed – und auch Nintendo hat eine Ankündigung veröffentlicht, mit der niemand so überraschend gerechnet hätte. Mit Hyrule Warriors: Zeit der Verheerung erscheint der nächste Teil der Zelda-Reihe für Nintendo Switch bereit in knapp zwei Monaten.
Time of Desolation takes place 100 years before Breath of the Wild
Hyrule Warriors: Time of Desolation tells the story of what happened before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This is not surprising, after all, information about the reasons for the deep darkness in Zelda: Breath of the Wild is not available or at most sparse. Memories of the disaster pop up every now and then, but the rest remains a mystery - until November 20th.
It did not stop with naming the release date. Nintendo presents information on how the new title came about. A corresponding video can be seen on Nintendo's official German-language YouTube channel:
Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda, and Yosuke Hayashi, producer of the Hyrule Warriors series by Koei Tecmo Games, talk in the video about the creation of the new action role-playing game Hyrule Warriors: Time of Devastation and present the first trailer for Game.
Nintendo confirms what is obvious: Hyrule Warriors is heavily inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but not just visually. The heroes of the adventure are familiar faces, including Link and Zelda. There are also other characters, such as the four warriors who can be played for the first time in the Hyrule Warriors series.
The action-packed experience should be familiar to all fans of Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors: At well-known locations of Hyrule, which they are now getting to know for the first time before their destruction, players plunge into battles against hordes of opponents. The game is fast-paced and requires strategic skill. The focus is on linking combos and on the well-timed use of special maneuvers.
The action in Hyrule Warriors: Time of Desolation is part of a storyline. Players immerse themselves in a backstory that depicts the events, context, and drama of the Great Devastation. In addition, players have to solve tricky puzzles, unlock weapons and skills, process collected materials or go shopping in shops.
In 2014, the first spin-off of "Hyrule Warriors" was released, then for Wii U. Four years later, the brand made the leap to the Nintendo Switch. Where characters and action are similar, the gameplay is much faster than the more leisurely action role-playing game.
Hyrule Warriors: Time of Desolation is released exclusively on Nintendo Switch. And anyone who pre-orders Hyrule Warriors: Time of Desolation from the Nintendo eShop will receive a bonus weapon for Link, the Lucky Trowel. The game will be released on November 20, 2020.
