Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition

As an interesting aside from the traditional news cycle, Nintendo has shared a new video that features a version of Hyrule Castle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild built entirely within Minecraft.

According to a translation presented on Resetera, this is intended to show how the famous castle appeared before Ganon and disaster struck within the game. In addition, the build was apparently put together by a “certified” team over at Microsoft, showing even more relations between them and Nintendo.

Those interested can check out the video below.
