There are countless theories surrounding Breath of the Wild’s place in the overall Zelda lore — namely, the much-contended timeline. Is the Great Plateau the ruins of Castle Town? Is the Master Sword the very one from A Link to the Past? Could this be the remains of Hyrule after the Great Flood receded?
Whatever your views or theories, it’s obvious there’s at least one connection between Breath of the Wild and the equally ambitious — for its time — Ocarina of Time. Sauraen on YouTube appears to have seen the same connection, and they took it upon themselves to recreate Breath of the Wild’s trailer using the far more limited environments and assets of Ocarina of Time for the N64. Clever camera manipulation adds the majesty of the new trailer to Ocarina’s dated graphics as they’re matched together shot for shot. Even the music has that retro touch.
Watch the first video below and see if you can recall what scenes are being depicted in Sauraen’s trailer. If you need help remembering, or want to see just how well they match up, check out the second video that compares the two. Be sure to give Sauraen’s efforts a Like as well!
