See how characters from one of the biggest game franchises in history are created and designed

Link and Zelda are two of the biggest stars in the coming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game. Of course, they resemble their previous incarnations – that’s a given. However, a new documentary shows us how the design team worked on the characters, giving them something new this time around.

Art director Satoru Takizawa says, “There’s the basic plan, the story, the different scenes, all the characters that are required to make everything work. The designers start their creative process from there.”

In addition, director Hidemaro Fujibayashi tells us, “The planners started by thinking about what kind of person Zelda is, and why she’s in a position that makes us want to save her.”
