The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Has Been Recreated As A Nintendo Game Boy Color Game
The Legend of Zelda is a high fantasy action-adventure video game series developed by Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, two Japanese game designers. Nintendo is the primary developer and publisher, while Capcom, Vanpool, and Grezzo have worked on several handheld installments and re-releases. Action-adventure and action RPG elements are incorporated into the gameplay.
The series follows Link, a brave young Hylian man with pointy elf-like ears, and Princess Zelda, a fairy princess who is the human reincarnation of the goddess Hylia, as they battle to save the magical land of Hyrule from Ganon, an evil warlord turned demon king who serves as the series' main antagonist. Ganon wants to recreate the earth in his own dark image by using the Triforce, a holy relic left behind by the three goddesses that created Hyrule. When the Triforce is gathered, the power will grant whatever wish the consumer desires; but, if anyone with a heart that lacks a combination of the three virtues of Power, Courage, and Wisdom tries to approach it, it can break into three triangles and bond with three persons whose hearts represent the requisite virtue.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the most visually stunning games on Nintendo Switch, but it may have looked really different on a previous gaming platform. Ohana Studio has posted a fan trailer for Breath of the Wild, reimagined in an art style that harkens back to the Game Boy Color's Zelda titles. The end result is a beautiful love letter to the Zelda series as a whole. It's possible that it'll make some fans wish the game was still in production! This page's trailer can be seen at the left.
Three Zelda games were released during the Game Boy Color's lifespan: Link's Awakening DX, Oracle of Ages, and Oracle of Seasons. None of these games have received the same amount of acclaim as Breath of the Wild, but they both have devoted fans. As a result, a new Zelda game in that style might be a huge hit!
Unfortunately, Ohana Studio quickly clarified that this is not currently in the development fan game. Nintendo is known for defending its intellectual property, and games created using Nintendo properties are easily taken down from the internet. However, there is a chance that the game will be released in some way. Ohana Studio mentions in the YouTube comments that it can replace the Zelda properties with new ones and create something new. It's not unheard of; games like Freedom Planet started off as fan ventures.
The Zelda franchise celebrates its 35th anniversary this year, and Nintendo is expected to have a lot to say about it during the year. Skyward Sword HD has been confirmed for Switch as of this date, but there have been speculation about other projects as well. Since Link's Awakening was remade for the Nintendo Switch, it's likely that the other Game Boy Color games would be as well. Fans will have to wait and see for the time being.
