It is now the best-selling game in the Warriors franchise which includes the likes of Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem: Warriors.

A spin-off of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the game focuses on the catastrophe depicted in the past. The focus is on a battle that took place 100 years before the events of Breath of the Wild.

A dramatic story is drawn along with the action unique to the Musou series and contains familiar characters such as Link.
