REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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.

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 http://www.gdcvault.com
the following week.
