Nintendo today released the launch trailer for the upcoming video game Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. In case you somehow weren't aware, the new Hyrule Warriors title, set 100 years before the events of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, will release this coming Friday, November 20th, for the Nintendo Switch.
If the launch trailer is any indication, it really seems like fans of both Zelda games and "Warriors" titles will be pleased with the new video game. There's all the Zelda lore on display married to the gameplay of Koei Tecmo's best titles. While the launch trailer doesn't seem to really spoil anything, it might be worth avoiding if you're wanting to go into the new video game as unaware as possible.
