It was at The Game Awards 2014 when Nintendo gave a first look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. With so much time having passed since then, GameXplain thought it would be worthwhile to see how the world has changed since then.

As far as the map goes, what Nintendo demonstrated a few years ago still holds true today. There are definitely some differences, but the overall layouts are very similar. GameXplain also managed to find most of the same locations shown at The Game Awards and this is where we can really begin to see how certain parts were reworked.

Watch the full video from GameXplain below.

A decade ago, Corey Bunnell made a post on TranslatorsCafe about spending a good portion of his senior year in high school as an exchange student. He was able to live in Japan, and it sounds like it was a great experience. He later wrote about how his “dream is to live in Japan and work for Nintendo as a game designer.”

Fast-forward to 2017. Nintendo just shipped The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild earlier this month. Towards the beginning of the game’s credits, almost every name is Japanese… except for one. In the “Wildlife Programming” section, one English name can be seen. Yup, it’s “Corey Bunnell”.

First, here’s a look at Bunnell’s post from 2007:

Ken Levine (BioShock), Jake Kazdal (Rez and Galak-Z), Jake Rodkin (The Walking Dead and Firewatch), and Aaron Lind (Battleborn and ArenaNet) participated, and spoke very highlight of the new game.
