"I really struggled with the visual for dubious food," reveals art director
After releasing a pretty comprehensive The Making of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on YouTube, Nintendo is back with some bonus content where the developers of the game talk their favorite characters, that pet wolf and the addition of cooking to the game.
"The reason I actually wanted to include cooking in the game was because I love salt-grilled fish," says game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi. "Rock salt and fish were actually the first things I asked for."
After discussing their favorite dishes Fujibayashi also reveals that the Nintendo Of America staff requested a chili crab dish.
"I really struggled with the visual for dubious food," says Satoru Takizawa, art director. It would actually be really gross if we made the visual something truly disgusting. The idea to pixelate it was perfect."
