Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity for the Nintendo Switch shipped and digital sales exceed 3.7 million copies

Koei Tecmo, the developer behind Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, has announced that the action-packed the Legend of Zelda-based musou game has topped 3.7 million total shipments and downloadable copies. The last sales report that we had from the company was back in November when the game had shipped a total of three million units. Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is available right now for the Nintendo Switch system both physically and digitally.

  1. My only disappointment with this game is the fact it didn’t show the events that led up to BotW. Nintendo had the balls to change what became the Zelda norm thanks to LttP with BotW, but sadly, they didn’t have those same balls to end a Zelda game with the heroes getting their asses handed to them with some of them dying at the end. Least Skyward Sword let you see one of the good guys die. Then again, she died of old age, not because a bad guy killed her. OoT doesn’t count as you don’t see the sages actually die, either. Only ever see the aftermath. shrug Oh well. Maybe one day.

      Oh man, couldn’t have said it better myself. I mean if Nintendo had been honest right from the start that this was a “What If” scenario or even showed that this was a new timeline, I think we’d all have been fine with it but nope, they had to market it like it was a true prequel. I’ve seen some people claim that Terrako being shown in the demo should have made this “obvious” but frankly there’s no way anyone could tell what was coming just from that. Even after the major changes it could still have been written to end in Ganon’s temporary victory.

      It’s a shame as well because had they stuck to this being a true prequel, it would have marked the first time we would have gotten to play as Princess Zelda and many others in a canonical Zelda game.

    2. Nintendo had the balls not to show the real story, but the balls to lie to us that we would see it. The game’s page on the eShop even says “Age of Calamity is the only way to see what really happened 100 years ago.” And yet within the first two minutes of the game- the opening cutscene- we are shown that this story we’re about to see is probably going to be skewed in some way, and it totally was.

  2. Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition is the game to get. Way better than this half assed asinine sic 6 point 9 of a game they call “musou”
