Today during Nintendo's E3 Direct presentation, the publisher revealed an expansion pass for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which first released back in 2020. The expansion becomes available in just three days on June 18, Nintendo revealed. 

Called "Pulse Of The Ancients," this is the first wave of two expansions planned for Hyrule Warriors, developer Koei Tecmo's musou game set in the Legend of Zelda universe. A brief trailer unveiled during the Direct showed the expected large-scale battles but also provided glimpses at controllable guardians, new weapons, and even Zelda riding a motorcycle – much like the one added in Breath of the Wild. A splash screen after the trailer expanded on the new additions, revealing the expansion would bring an "Apocalyptic" difficulty, new challenges in the Royal Ancient Lab, and new enemies, such as higher-ranking Wizzrobes and a Giant Chuchu.

Check out the new trailer in full below:
