Is this character a tribute to Satoru Iwata in Breath of the Wild? [VIDEO]

We’ve seen a lot of incredible things in Breath of the Wild since it launched last week, but this is probably one of the more touching things. Sean Buckley put together a short video about a character you meet in the early parts of the game that highly resembles former Nintendo president Satoru Iwata.

If you missed it yesterday, we posted a snippet of an interview with some of the development team behind Breath of the Wild and they discussed how the unexpected passing of Iwata affected development of the game. It was a highly touching read that I recommend you check out and it’s not hard to believe that the team included a tribute to Mr. Iwata given the impact he had on their lives.
