Sony Playstation 5 :

Nintndo doesn’t expect Hyrule Warriors to become a standalone saga, but “circumstances could happen again like this.”

Two things are clear right now on the part of Nintendo for this one new Hyrule Warriors. The first is that the game is on sale now for Nintendo SwitchWe leave you our analysis the other day. The second is that this new Hyrule Warriors: Age of Cataclysm will not give rise to new deliveries under these premises as an independent series.

So, that’s why I think it is difficult to have control over these projects and their frequency “.

What was the idea behind this project? “From Fujibayashi-san, director of Breath of the Wild, who brought up the concept. He thought that telling the history of the Great Cataclysm of BotW It would only be possible on a system where players were facing hordes of enemies, so he sent me a personal project.
