Zelda: Breath of the Wild GDC talk now online

Want to see that footage of the 2D prototype that's been talked about? Watch the session right here

As we covered last week during GDC 2017, Zelda: Breath of the Wild's Game Director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, Art Director Satoru Takizawa and Technical Director Takuhiro Dohta provided an in-depth look at how the team broke conventions with the franchise as they created one of Nintendo's best-received titles in years. The GDC session also shared details and footage of the 2D prototype game that Nintendo created in the style of the original Legend of Zelda, which was designed to help the team test out gameplay mechanics.

If you weren't at GDC or simply couldn't get into the session, we highly recommend that you watch the stream below. Enjoy!
