A new Nintendo series posted through their official YouTube channel called The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Retrospective has debuted their first episode a couple of days ago, and if you’re a fan of knowing what happens behind the scenes, then this might be an interesting series for you!
Twilight Princess Retrospective, like the title suggests, is a series that will be giving interesting insight to the development of the original title for the GameCube and Wii. As mentioned before, the first episode, titled “A Look Back”, was published two days ago, and it consisted of Aonuma’s and other developers’ initial reactions to the first trailer of the game released back in 2004. They talk of that feeling of success from the immense positive reaction it garnered, to the pressure that same positive reaction laid upon them.
Script writer Aya Kyogoku talks on the hints Midna gave the player, revealing that she and her team actually played through the game in order to get a feel for where the players were more likely to get stuck, and thus write better, more helpful hints.
You can check out the first episode below for more retrospective views on the 2006 Twilight Princess title, and don’t forget to look forward to future episodes, for I’m sure they will be just as interesting as this first one!
