While Zelda fans have to wait for news about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, Nintendo will soon be releasing another Zelda game just in time for the Christmas business, namely Hyrule Warriors: Time of Devastation – the Japanese company recently announced this. The action game takes place 100 years before the story of Breath of the Wild and borrows many elements such as the game world and characters from the Zelda megahit.
As early as E3 2019, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Switch as "one last thing". Nothing new has been shown about the title since then. For the time being, as Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma revealed in a video, development is in full swing, but still needs time, according to the series boss.

In another, somewhat longer video, Aonuma and the game's producer Yosuke Hayashi already revealed some details about the time of the devastation. The game developed by Koei Tecmo Games relies on the classic Warriors principle in terms of gameplay, such as Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition. Graphics, game world, characters and Co., however, are taken from Breath of the Wild. So you play with Link, Zelda, Revali, Urbosa, Daruk and Mipha and experience not only the typical game world of Breath of the Wild, but also the events of the "great devastation", one hundred years before the events in Breath of the Wild .
