Koei Tecmo announces that their most recent title in the Mosou genre has already sold more than 3 million times. A record for the genre and a very decent performance in itself.
The game we are talking about is of course Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Koei Tecmo has developed the Mosou game in collaboration with the team behind Nintendo’s Breath of the Wild. The game takes place 100 years before the events of Breath of the Wild. The game also shares the same world, characters, different features and much more.
The success of Age of Calamity is therefore largely due to the Nintendo Switch and Wii U game from 2017. In less than a week, the game has managed to leave the digital and physical counter more than 3 million times. The success is communicated through Famitsu.
Despite its many similarities, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity plays very differently from a traditional Zelda title. In Hyrule Warriors, just like the first part, it’s all about fighting. You choose a playable character and then complete missions that involve fighting hundreds of enemies on your own. You could say that Age of Calamity is the most extensive variant in the genre with all elements from Breath of the Wild. This breaks up the many chopping and hitting with other activities that are familiar to Zelda players.
Have you already started working on the new mosou title in The Legend of Zelda franchise? What do you think about it so far? This is not the sequel to Breath of The Wild, by the way. This is still under development at Nintendo.
