The Legend of Zelda: Insanity of Art

By Nate Merritt
January 13, 2018

 
The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild introduced us to plenty of new art and design for The Legend of Zelda series, but did you know Link in Breath of the Wild, could have looked extraordinarily different? Yes, different indeed, and different to the point of insanity.

YouTuber Dr.Wily gives us insight into five, VERY different, Link concepts (that could have been) in his latest video about The Legend of Zelda. Was Link originally intended to be a cyborg in Breath of the Wild or a rude, crude biker dude? Perhaps it was once thought that Hyrule could be set in space, depicted by Link wearing a space suit? The art presented in the video are only concepts, so the thoughts behind each zany idea for Link may never be known. Still yet, each design is very unique and could have put a whole new spin on Breath of the Wild and the entire Zelda franchise.

Personally, I like the idea of a cyborg Link and the use of all of his tools being actual abilities, rather than external instruments. However, on the flipside, I don’t want to mess with the Zelda mythos so much as to turn Link into a cyborg, as that does not seem fitting. It is a cool concept though. Which concept(s) do you like best? Or do you like any of them at all? Let us know in the comment section below.
