Satoru Iwata in Zelda Breath of the Wild

Former Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away before The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild came to completion. The development team has spoken several times already on how he influenced the title and how they were inspired by him to continue even after his sad passing. Now, fans believe they have found the team’s tribute hidden away inside the game.

Satoru Iwata’s absence at Nintendo is still being felt by its employees and fans alike. Many looked up to him for guidance during his reign as the company’s president, and many have turned to game development to pay tribute to him in their own special way. Whether or not the team intentionally made character Botrick look like Iwata, the world really would like to believe that it is him walking around in there.
