Famed developer Masahiro Sakurai, the mind behind some of the biggest franchises such as Smash Bros. and Kirby, has given his take between the similar striking similarities between The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn during his weekly column on Famitsu.
Kindly translated by the folks over at Source Gaming, Sakurai points out the similarities between both games, as well as what he likes and dislikes between both games. Sakurai favors Horizon more than Zelda, since it’s a new IP as well as ‘more stress free’ while Zelda grows tiresome with all its routines.
A week before writing this column, two wonderfully outstanding works were released and I was torn between how to spend my time. Horizon Zero Dawn (from here on out “Horizon”) and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (further referred to as “Zelda”). By all means, play them both because they really are masterpieces.
With that being said, I am surprised by the fact that although there are aspects that are very close, there are other aspects that are very different.
