Nintendo Shuts Down Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Fan Project But There Is Still Hope
Nintendo has officially shut down a fan project that was trying to rebuild the world of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in a 2D world. However, the developer has spoken up against the issue and still plans to do something with his work.
Nintendo Shuts Down Zelda: Breath Of The Wild Fan Project
One fan, WinterDrake, had been developing his own 2D BotW project after seeing Nintendo's initial process for making the original game. The idea of having a 2D world yet keeping all of the game's original aspects seemed like a major work but the fan was still up to the task. He even released a short demo with a major update supposedly launching later this week.
In spite of this, Gameranx reports that the game will no longer receive any further support at its current build as the company was quick to take down the project. Even so, this comes off a bit unsurprising, as it has also done the same thing towards other fan made projects for its franchises - notably Pokémon. Even YouTubers have trouble showcasing their video games via reviews as it would lead to legal issues.
Developer Responds To Legal Actions
Despite the recent turn of events, GameSpot shares that WinterDrake will still move forward with his work. However, instead of labeling it as a Zelda title, he claimed that it will become a spin-off project instead. Moreover, the fan stated that this title will be even bigger and better than the original project and will also feature higher-resolution artwork. This spinoff will also include "all of the gameplay and design" hinting that the game will play similarly to a Zelda title.
Strangely enough, WinterDrake claimed that he was anticipating Nintendo to shut down his project as it was his "planned decision." It seems like he merely used the Zelda: Breath of the Wild title to gain both feedback and publicity from the fans and media. For now, players will just have to wait for further news regarding his upcoming game.
