Not all the pieces in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is super-serious and story-oriented. In reality, a number of the stuff situated within the sport is designed for pure enjoyable, a lot in order that the manufacturing workforce added in one thing as ridiculous as golden poop as an enormous prize within the sport.
Talking with IGN at this previous yr’s Game Awards show in Los Angeles, California, sport director Hidemaro Fujibayashi defined how and why the workforce got here up with the distinctive golden poop prize after gamers accomplished the gargantuan process of buying 9 hundred Korok seeds, as a part of Hestu’s Present, saying…
We simply sort of thought it could be humorous to make huge joke. It is simply the backstory, the sort of hidden sort of factor within the sport the entire means is that the Korok seeds are literally Korok poop.
Sure, after looking out by way of the whole lot of Hyrule for all the Korok seeds, gamers are rewarded with golden Korok poop.
I am positive some persons are most likely a bit let down at the truth that after spending hours, upon hours, upon hours of discovering the seeds solely ends in buying a golden pile of poop. Nonetheless, this was the joke that Fujibayashi and the crew needed so as to add one thing enjoyable to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for the Wii U and Nintendo Switch.
The response from Fujibayashi did not totally sit too effectively with some avid gamers, as avid gamers realized that though 400 Korok seeds expanded the stock, the truth is that the opposite 500 seeds did not appear to be all that helpful apart from for gathering them only for the sake of gathering them.
Some avid gamers in contrast the complete sidequest to nothing greater than a satiation for OCD, provided that it is simply one other small factor within the grander scheme of the sport’s bigger map to gather. The seeds do not serve a lot of a higher goal within the general scheme of issues however they’re fashionable nonetheless for people who find themselves completionists.
The Korok seeds are simply one of many many alternative gadgets gamers can gather all through The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, however perhaps within the next Legend of Zelda game that Eiji Aonuma and the remainder of the crew are at the moment engaged on we’ll see a extra purposeful utility to the seeds different than simply for extending the stock or being certainly one of many gadgets to gather for the sake of gather them.
Even nonetheless, it is hilarious that one of many extra vital gadgets within the sport that permits you to lengthen your stock, however the merchandise in query is nothing greater than poop.
However then once more, what would one count on from a sport the place you possibly can bodily blast an enormous boulder to the highest of a citadel, glide almost all the way in which throughout the map, or defeat a boss by dropping a pile of bananas on the bottom? The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is full of all kinds of kooky quirks, and this reveal in regards to the Korok seeds is simply one other in a protracted line of them.
