Premiered at TGS 2020, newest trailer titled "Champions Unite!" focuses on Hyrule Warriors' untold story.

Link receives special abilities drawn from fallen Champions' spirits upon defeating each Divine Beast in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and latest gameplay trailer gives you a glimpse of these of brave heroes from a century ago.

Daruk, Mipha, Revali and Urbosa unleash their unique abilities on hordes of Ganon to stop the Great Calamity. Although Daruk's Protection and Mipha's Grace were sort of excluded, you get a quick look at Revali's Gale and Urbosa's Fury.

Daruk freezes up a group of Lizalfos using Sheikah Slate's stasis before smashing them by taking a massive rock-like form. Princess Mipha summons a whirlwind to clear out a Bokoblin gang before striking them with her Lightscale Trident.

Champion of Rito village fly above ground to release an explosive arrow on a stunned horde in Revali's Gale. Urbosa's Fury shows titular Gerudo chieftain and warrior to charge a number of Lizalfos enemies with powerful lightning bolts.

Age of Calamity also brings back a young version of Impa from TLoZ: BotW as a playable character. When she came across Link during events of Breath of the Wild, he had no memory of her after his hundred years of long sleep.

Despite being a major character in Legend of Zelda series history, Impa is often depicted as a nursemaid to Zelda. TGS 2020 showcase reveals her amazing fighting abilities like air gliding, making shadow clones and usage of kunai.

A special "Treasure Box" edition for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity will include base game, official box art on an acrylic plate, a patterned blanket and mini Guardian figure, which is likely to be priced around $159.99 only for retail.

Nintendo is re-releasing a special batch of Hyrule Warriors-themed Amiibo toys in anticipation of launch. Also, players who make early purchase of digital edition will receive Lucky Ladle in-game DLC weapon as pre-order bonus item.

Recent gameplay and story preview of Hyrule Warriors answers some questions that players had after BotW while raising a few more. KOEI Tecmo and Nintendo may launch an extended overview of each character before its release.

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is currently scheduled to release on November 20, 2020, for Nintendo Switch. Legend of Zelda series fans need not to wait too long to join alongside Link and Princess Zelda to prevent Great Calamity.
