An image from the newly released Hyrule Encyclopedia has given us a glimpse into what the original Legend of Zelda looked like during a very early stage of development.

The screenshot, which is from an extremely early build of the game, shows what appears to be a dungeon select screen in a first-person view. Obviously, the original Legend of Zelda contained neither of these features, so this would likely have been taken during a time when the development of the game had only just begun. posted the image on Twitter, stating the screenshot is from a “super old build” of the game.

Capcom just released a new trailer for Monster Hunter Stories which showcases the game’s collaboration with The Legend of Zelda. You can dress up the main character as Link, ride Epona and let your Felyne companion wear Majora’s Mask.
