The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes offers over 30 costumes. Yet there’s one idea that was left on the cutting room floor.

Speaking with USGamer, director Hiromasa Shikata revealed one costume that didn’t make it into the final game. There was talk about adding in “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, but the team couldn’t really think of a proper way to implement it.

According to Shikata:

“I can think of one right off the top of my head. That would be one that was inspired by the folktale “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” which as you know is the story of the emperor who thinks he’s wearing something of the highest fashion, but he’s actually—when other people look at him, he’s not wearing anything. They thought that would be a great idea for an outfit, but they weren’t able to come up with an implementation that would—they weren’t sure how to wrap up that whole thing as one good feature spec, you know, “How could we actually implement that neat idea as something that’s relevant to the game?” They unfortunately weren’t able to come to a conclusion, so that never made the cut.”
