Zelda: Breath of the Wild may have a tribute to Iwata

Posted on March 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch, Wii U

YouTube user Seaniccus may have uncovered a small but lovely tribute to Satoru Iwata in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

We won’t get too much into the specifics just in case there are some of you who want to be completely blind of the game’s smaller secrets and whatnot, but the main idea here is that one of the game’s NPC bears a striking resemblance to the late Nintendo president. Along with that, he tells you about a certain mountain in the game that’s just one letter off from “Satoru”.

    It “may” pay tribute to a beloved company figure? That seems kinda dark.

  • Acantus

    That’s epic, just like the game.

    Makes me wonder if there’s some small tribute to Robin Williams, he was a huge zelda fan, would be a pretty nice detail.

      Not to mention his daughter is Zelda
      Imagine Robert Williams knowing about BoTW and playing it 🙁

      I wondered that when I met the NPC Robbie, who is essential to the story. I wonder if Robin ever went by that nickname.

    even if it wasnt an homage its still a really cool design. he looks gentle but determined. the build of a warrior but the clean cut class of a gentleman.
