playing with time again [FW Labs]

Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity has come to us and we can only tell you that it left us with our mouths open. Here we tell you everything.

Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity presents us with a few things that are very different from what we are used to in The Legend of Zelda series, because apart from having a story that presents us with a different look than the one we already know all our lives, we can also find a very different style of play.

Gameplay

For those who have played the previous Hyrule Warriors, this game follows the same battle line, because here we will face different hordes of enemies that are usually led by even bigger bosses.

Among all the buttons that seem to be necessary to play, there really is a whole system of combos that vary from one character to another, making it clear that they not only managed to create movements for Link and their use within the battlefield, They went the extra mile to make you feel like you really control and meet more characters than you have ever been able to control before.

The combos, despite being simple, are really what spice up the game, because you can combine them to keep getting more and more hits without dropping the enemies. Either continue with special abilities or combine aerial and ground combos, there is a great variety of attacks at your disposal.

But not everything is combat, because sometimes you will have to perform different missions that involve reaching certain points on the map to create ambushes or find treasures, some of which are not even tied to the campaign, like chests or Kologs, yes, again to find Kologs throughout the game.

History

The plot of the game presents us again, with travel in time, and it is not that it is a bad thing, Well, the last time we saw time trips in the series, the time line split into 3, giving rise to countless theories from fans.

This game begins precisely with the journey to the past of a small egg-shaped guardian that contains records of what the war against Ganon has caused in Hyrule. This mobilizes all the characters to try to avoid that tragic future, which, as you will remember, is the one that started the successful The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The story begins so far back in time that Link himself was still nothing more than a soldier in the Hyrule army, getting to be recognized by the princess and the king until we are already in the game for a long time.

There are cinematics, dubbed and written dialogues and very interesting interactions with characters that you cannot miss for the world. It really is a very important piece in the history of The Legend of Zelda and every fan should give it a try..

Visuals and audio

Visually, this title follows the vein of Breath of the Wild, so the designs of all the enemies, settings and characters remain almost the same in this version.

As for the battles, these are very striking and full of action, with jaw-dropping special attacks and cinematics that make us feel like we’re playing Breath of the Wild again.

The voice performances are amazing, no matter what language you play it, and the voices They have remained the same as the first title of this era of Zelda, so you will feel at home from the moment you open the game until you reach the end.

The music also shines a lot, as it continues with the orchestral line of Breath of the Wild but being much more focused on the battle and war that occurs at that time than on exploration and in nature. It’s those little details that make this game great.
