The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The latest post on the Production Notes blog of the official The Legend of Zelda portal in Japan is from Makoto Yonezu, who was in charge of Landscape Design in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. He’s there to talk about the map feature of the Sheikah Slate, and more precisely the zoom.
As you definitely already know if you’ve played the game, you can zoom in or out on this map, which allows you to easily find your way in the world, find interesting places, and more.
In this blog post, he’s talking about interesting places you can find on the map, and more precisely those you can find thanks to the… unique shapes of the landscape:
- In the first set of screenshots, we can see something that looks suspiciously like a giant frying pan. If you go there, you do end up finding someone who is cooking (or rather, trying to, and miserably failing!);
- In the second set of screenshots, we can see a rather suspicious shape. If you go there, you will find that same shape, made of rocks on the ground. Is something good hidden around there?
- In the third set of screenshots, we can see a suspicious and definitely unnatural trio of trees. If you’re trying to find all the Korok seeds, you might want to take a close look at any such strange group of trees!
While riding a horse is definitely a great way to travel in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you definitely want to take a close look at your map regularly. Who knows what you could find in there!
Finally, Makoto Yonezu shared two more screenshots, inviting fans to find where in Hyrule they were taken:
It’s a certain island, that totally doesn’t look like a crab. Oh, and Makoto Yonezu totally does not find it delicious-looking, no.
Speaking of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, here’s a video of a Guardian Sword replica:
