We don't know much else about the game, but the "strategic battle experience" is confirmed for PC via Steam, Nintendo Switch, and all current- and next-gen consoles – PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
A mobile Dynasty Warriors instalment was also announced at the show, but sadly the game – and the upcoming beta, which goes live in a couple of weeks for iOS and Android devices – is only available in Japan for now.
In related news, Nintendo recently teased (opens in new tab) that it was going to share an extended look at Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (opens in new tab) gameplay during Tokyo Game Show 2020 this weekend, and it certainly delivered on its promise. In a livestream from the trade show, producers Yosuke Hayashi and Masaki Furusawa joined director Ryouta Matsushita at the digital event to present new footage of the hack-and-slasher, depicting Breath of the Wild's Impa – who will be a playable warrior – 100 years younger than she appeared to be in the latest Zelda instalment.
"Unlike the previous Hyrule Warriors games, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity was developed by working closely with the Zelda team in every step of the process, including gameplay direction, graphics, world, and all dialogue," Hayashi explained when Age of Calamity was announced.
