The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Developers to Host GDC Panel

Nintendo doesn’t always go to the Game Developers Conference in March. In fact, they have skipped the event a few times. This year, though, Nintendo has a big new system and a big new game coming out in March! Nintendo will be at GDC in March to talk about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.


GDC, the Game Developers Conference, will be held in March. Nintendo will be there on March 1 and hold a Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild panel with the game’s developers!

Check out this press release from Nintendo for more details:

“Three developers behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will host a panel at the upcoming Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The panel, “Change and Constant – Breaking Conventions with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild”, will feature game director Hidemaro Fujibayashi, art director Satoru Takizawa and technical director Takuhiro Dohta. The panel is scheduled to be held 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on March 1 at the Moscone Center.

For decades, The Legend of Zelda series has been recognized as a trailblazer in game design that has influenced countless other games and developers. The latest game in the series, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U systems, introduces wide-ranging changes that break with many of the traditional conventions of the franchise. The panel will provide an in-depth look at how these convention-breaking changes were implemented.

The panel will take place two days before Nintendo Switch, Nintendo’s new home system, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild launch. For those who are not attending GDC, a video of the panel will be available at the following week.”

Breath of the Wild looks amazing! I’m glad that a video of the developer panel will end up online a week after the event. I will definitely be checking that video out!

Are you looking forward to Breath of the Wild? Will you check out the GDC developers panel?
