Nintendo’s premier title for the holiday season is finally here. An in-depth look at the devastating events preceding The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity promises a more action-packed exploration of one of the most popular iterations of Hyrule. While 2020 has been rather dry for many Nintendo fans (outside of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, of course), this most recent title offers a new adventure in a beloved IP. Are you picking it up right away, or are you able to resist the hype?
Even though I absolutely love The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity isn’t quite on my radar at this time. I enjoy Musou games and definitely plan to play the game eventually, but I simply don’t have time right now with finals and a colossal backlog. And, I’m looking forward to taking advantage of some Black Friday discounts instead of spending full price on any brand-spanking-new games. The stars will line up eventually, but I don’t need to have this game at launch.
Are you grabbing Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity at launch, or will you wait a bit before diving in? What factored into your decision? Let us know in the comments below.
