One of the big surprises of E3 2019 was the announcement of the sequel to Breath of the Wild. The trailer contained dark undertones that haven’t been in Zelda games since Majora’s Mask. A YouTube user has now recreated this trailer using Nintendo 64 graphics.
The trailer for ‘Breath of the Wild 64 sequel’ was made by The Regressor. For this, the YouTube user used software such as Maya 2009 and Photoshop. The video frames are rendered at a resolution of 240×320 pixels at 30 frames per second. For an old-school feel, the frame rate has been lowered to 15 to 18 fps. The resolution has also been increased to 1920×1080 pixels without using anti-aliasing.
The Regressor also shot some unique footage for the trailer. This concerns the images between 1:04 and 1:08 minutes in the video. These images include Yiga assassins and an awakened Ganondorf.
The first images of the Breath of the Wild sequel, which were shown during E3 2019, have a rather dark undertone, especially for a modern Zelda game. This is only accentuated by the N64 graphics. An evil villain like Ganondorf has a slightly bigger creep factor with the blocky graphics. It seems to resemble Majora’s Mask, which came out in 2000 for the Nintendo 64. It is still unclear when the Breath of the Wild sequel will be released.
