Turns Out Zelda: Breath Of The Wild’s NPCs Share A Common Bond With The Humble Mii

Switch launch title Zelda: Breath of the Wild continues to throw up cool secrets even today, and Twitter user @HEYimHeroic has just unearthed another: the NPCs in the game use an updated version of the Mii face creation tool which first appeared when the Wii was released in 2006.

It makes sense that Nintendo would use an existing tool to streamline the process of creating characters for the game, but it’s still somewhat surprising that a system created 15 years ago is still being used in Nintendo’s AAA software.

It’s also interesting because it means that hackers who are pulling the game apart on PC (via emulation) can ‘inject’ new faces into the game now they understand how those faces are created. Expect to see some famous faces arriving in modified versions of Breath of the Wild soon, then.
