Zelda turns: The breath of the wild NPC shares a common bond with the humble mini.

Switch launch title Zelda: The breath of the wild Even today, and the Twitter user continues to throw cool secrets HEYimHeroic Just discovered another one: the game uses an updated version of the NPC’s Mee Face Creation tool, which appeared before the Wii was released in 2006.

It makes sense that Nintendo would use an existing tool to streamline the process of creating characters for the game, but it’s still somewhat surprising that the system created 15 years ago in Nintendo’s AAA software is still used.

It’s also interesting because it means that hackers pulling the game apart from the PC (by simulation) can now ‘inject’ new faces into the game now that they understand how those faces are created. Soon after, expect to see some famous faces in the revised versions of Breath.
