A few days ago, Nintendo revealed some early concepts for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. From aliens to a motorcycle, it seems the team was willing to experiment with anything. However, there were a lot more pieces of art shown off at Nintendo’s GDC panel that they didn’t post on Twitter. Among these are Link in a space suit and an adult version of what his Wind Waker self might look like.
Nintendo also showed off the different tests they did to make
Breath of the Wild‘s art style. This included taking models of Link from The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword and converting them to higher resolution textures and resolution; this is when the team saw the amazing change in The Wind Waker and decided to remaster it for Wii U. Of course, Twilight Princess was later brought to the system as well, so it’s possible that Nintendo has also toyed with the idea of bringing Skyward Sword to a newer console.
The artwork also shows a ton of other interesting concepts, like a floating island where Ganon was originally supposed to be. You can view all the new concept art in the gallery below!
What do you guys think of this? Would you have liked to see Nintendo expand on some of these pieces of concept art more, or perhaps do so in a future game? Should Nintendo capitalize on an HD version of
Skyward Sword as well? Give us your thoughts in the comments!
