If you’ve ever explored Hyrule Castle in Breath of the Wild, you might have wondered what the building looked like before Calamity Ganon destroyed it so thoroughly. There was some hope that some of the game’s DLC would be able to show what it looked like, but the DLC came and went without it.
Now, some Minecraft builders have recreated what they believed it to look like in the block-building game.
Users from a Minecraft Partners Program team, an official partner of Microsoft, used promotional footage of Breath of the Wild to try and piece together what the castle would have looked like inside before Ganon. It took thirteen people about two months to recreate the castle brick-by-brick in Minecraft.
Nintendo highlighted their work in a video released yesterday, which makes me wonder if it’s just a little bit of a wink and nudge between Microsoft and Nintendo in their increasing partnership.
