Breath of the Wild 2 trailer was remade in a N64 style

It’s been a couple of years since Zelda: BotW came out and I just finished it last week. Coincidentally, this video game out: a N64-style remake of the Breath of the Wild 2 trailer.

Now, I think that BotW is the biggest improvement in the Zelda series since Ocarina of Time. Both 2D and 3D Zelda games have been rather samey since Link to the Past and Ocarina, following a similar formula in each iteration. However, Breath of the Wild brings a breath (heh) of fresh air with its non-linear gameplay, huge world and inventory system. Because of its critical and commercial success, Nintendo announced a sequel being in development at E3 earlier this year.

That being said, last week a Youtuber called The Regressor (with music/SFX by Vince94) remade the above Breath of the Wild 2 trailer in the style of the Nintendo 64 games from 20 years ago.

The N64 version follows it pretty much exactly, shot-by-shot. Honestly, it looks great, I would have loved to see a game like this come out back in 2001 after Majora’s Mask. But then again I’m a sucker for anything Zelda and anything N64, so sue me.

What I especially love about this Breath of the Wild 2 trailer is that the sound design is compressed like it is on the Nintendo 64. It’s such a small detail, but it’s great.

I often hear that people find low-poly graphics dated rather than charming, but this comes to show that they still have a place in fanart. Who knows, maybe we’ll see more N64-style remakes of modern titles.
