Nintendo have released a three-part video series, documenting the creation of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. In each part, you’ll get a rundown on the design and art decisions that informed the look and feel of the final product.
In the first video (above), you’ll see some of the early builds and ideas that were thrown around. Among them were a UFO used to capture cattle, and a 2D prototype to test broad features that would make their way into the game.
We reviewed The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, scoring it a 9.5. We praised its ability to recapture the sense of wonder and danger that the original evoked back in 1986.
