Following up on their announcement from a few weeks ago, today’s Nintendo Direct shed more light on the upcoming Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Season Pass.

This first of two planned seasonal expansions is Wave 1: Pulse of the Ancients, and will continue the tried-and-true crowd-battling mechanics from previous versions, as well as adding interesting new surprises such as Link’s Flail weapon, Zelda on the always-fun Master Cycle, and (at long last) the ability to control a Guardian! Mow down waves of Bokoblins and never have to worry about Breath of the Wild‘s terrifying piano music cues!

The pass will launch on Wednesday, June 16th for $19.99 USD. You can find the preorder here.
