Hyrule Warriors: Age Of Calamity Lets You Pilot The Divine Beasts

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity released a new trailer today, showing off the Yiga Clan, sprawling maps, and – best of all – playable Divine Beasts. Nintendo only showed off a few seconds of gameplay for each, but it’s clear that they’re a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.

The trailer starts by giving us a cinematic look at a few of the enemies we’ll be facing off against during our time with Age of Calamity, before zooming in on Revali, Champion of the Rito tribe. He claims that he’s said enough, and that “the time has come to show you what I’m made of.” From there, the camera pans towards the sky – revealing Divine Beast, Vah Medoh.

The trailer then turns into a rapid-fire montage of Divine Beasts and their respective abilities. Vah Medoh can rain destruction from above, Vah Naboris can charge forward to destroy anything in its path, Vah Ruta shoots powerful streams of water from its trunk, and Vah Rudania sets foes ablaze with fiery footprints. You can check out the action in the trailer below:

Nintendo hasn’t said how often we’ll get to pilot the powerful beasts, but we’d have to imagine it’ll be a fairly infrequent occurrence – otherwise the game would be a walk in the park. Still, stepping behind the controls of the gigantic mechs will be a treat for fans of Breath of the Wild, who previously only explored their innards and never got to see their true power in battle.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity also announced a demo for Nintendo Switch, available now through the eShop. You’ll be able to complete the entirety of the first chapter and any progress you make will carry over to the full game. Earlier this week there were rumors of a demo coming within the next few weeks – thanks to Nintendo’s Korean website jumping the gun – but no one expected to see it this soon.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is slated for a November 20 release on Nintendo Switch.
