Zelda Breath of The Wild Fan Game Allows You To Play In 2-D
A while back Nintendo demonstrated the 2-D engine it used to conceptualize the excellent Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game. Now a fan named Winter Drake has created a demo of what a possible finalized game in this style would look like. Using all new mechanics and some new sprite resources, the end result is something refreshing for Zelda fans. Going back to the graphical days of the NES can sometimes result in a bad game, just to try to cash in on nostalgia. However this fan project somehow manages to stay true to the mechanics that made the original Legend of Zelda and Breath of the Wild video game masterpieces.
A demo is available for download on Winter Drake's page, but don't be surprised if it is gone soon. Nintendo has a nasty habit of shutting down super cool fan projects, even if they are not trying to make any money off of them. They have every right to do so, but man it's really neat when something like this comes along. If anything, I hope Nintendo is paying attention and has The Legend of Zelda Maker game in development. I would love to switch between the older art styles to create a complex overworld as well as multiple dungeons. In the meantime, I will have to keep following WinterDrake to see what comes next for the Legend of Zelda Breath of The NES.
