Nintendo, and specifically Zelda fans, are ready to get their hands on the latest title in the franchise, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, a spinoff that actually ties to the main series via Breath of the Wild, as it acts as a prequel to the smash hit that released alongside the Nintendo Switch back in 2017.
The Koei Tecmo game that mixes gameplay of the Dynasty Warriors franchise with Breath of the Wild's universe boasts a massive lineup of character from the BOTW universe (a total of 19) including Monk Maz Koshia, making its return from The Champions' Ballad DLC.
