Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may receive a playable demo soon

There is not long left to wait until Koei Tecmo’s next big Musou cross-over (no, not that one) launches next month, and Nintendo Korea has supposedly leaked a playable Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity demo that will launch soon. A new trailer will also be released to coincide with the demo’s launch, providing more details about the game’s story and world.

This announcement was quickly removed from the Nintendo Korea website, but a couple of Twitter users managed to provide screenshots as well as a translation before it was taken down.

According to these details, you will be able to play through the game’s prologue and carry your progress over to the full game next month. This is a tactic that Nintendo has been employing with the release of demos for its upcoming library for a while. We recently saw the same sort of deal with Pikmin 3 Deluxe, so this treatment for Age of Calamity would make sense.

With less than a month until launch, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity looks like it is going to be a worthy addition to the Zelda canon. Being able to explore an untold narrative will surely be interesting. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity launches next month on Nov. 20. Are you as ready for this game as we are?
