Yes, I would absolutely play a Warriors game demake in the Zelda style

Age of Calamity gets a makeover mockup

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is out, and as expected, it’s gotten a reaction out of you all in the community.

I expected the performance issues to be a problem for many, but a lot of you out there are enjoying the new take on the story on top of the tweaks to the classic Warriors formula. Well, a lot of people out there are experiencing it actually, as it shipped three million copies and basically became the most successful Warriors game overnight.

But I don’t want to stop there. While DLC seems inevitable, there’s a lot of potential here with Age of Calamity add-ons, and I hope to eventually see some of the hardcore endgame content from the original Hyrule Warriors. Oh, and another entry, of course, potentially tying into Breath of the Wild 2.

Before that all (likely) happens though, the folks over at Nintendo Wire gave us a glimpse at what could be in their Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity demake. Done in the style of the Game Boy Color era, it’s a lovely little mockup that actually looks pretty fun to play! Just about everything from the minimalist intro that conveys the key bits of the real opening cutscene, to the gameplay itself looks fantastic.

Things like this make me immediately reach for my GBA collection! The good old SP is never far from my desk.
