Nintendo tempts new devs with behind-the-scenes details of how Breath of the Wild 2's reveal trailer was made

"We are seeking both the power to create play and the power to create art," the careers site says.

If you're desperate to know more about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 (and why wouldn't you - its predecessor has pride of place in our Games of the Decade list), Nintendo has shared a handful of behind-the-scenes shots of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 by way of its careers website.

As spotted by our friends at VGC, the web page includes a number of images that illustrate how the team put together The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2's E3 trailer that debuted earlier this year. Whilst, admittedly, they don't give away much, the images document development from early concept work to motion-capture performances and animation, and perhaps intimate the pride the team took in the big reveal.


There are also images and information about other prominent Nintendo IPs, including Splatoon, Arms, Animal Crossing, and that well-known plumber, too.

Nintendo ended its E3 Direct back in June with a surprise tease: a full sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now in development for Nintendo Switch. A dedicated Zelda fan has also created an impressive The Legend of Zelda demake video - and it takes the upcoming Breath of the Wild 2 right back to 1999.
