One of This Year’s Best Games Pays a Funny Tribute to One of the Greatest Games of All Time

A new entry in the established Assassin’s Creed franchise has been recently released and critics are giving it just applauds, but they aren’t the only ones. Ubisoft has been getting celebratory feedback from dedicated Legend of Zelda fans for their hilarious nod to Breath of the Wild.

As can be seen in this video produced by IGN, if you do a little bit of exploring with your character you can find an isolated island in the middle of a lake. Exploring the area will lead you to finding an instantly recognizable rock formation with what seems to be a familiar leaf fellow in the middle. Unfortunately, it isn’t one of our 900 favorite green friends but it is a little twig and rock tribute dedicated to them. Does this mean that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey fits into the timeline before Breath of the Wild and Wind Waker? Ooooooooooo!

This isn’t the first tribute found in a third party game, as recently as a few years ago the eagled eyed amongst us would of found a rupee statue in Call of Duty Ghosts. I am sure there are many more tributes out there, but it seems that game developers have just as much affinity for the legendary series as we do.

So what do you think, is this the 901st Korok seed? Are you hopeful for an AC/Zelda crossover? What is your favorite video game tribute?

This has been aJ for TGPZ, yes I did find all 900 seeds … take care and keep gaming, Buh-Bye!
