Tracker of Time – Captain Toad Was Originally a Zelda Prototype

According to Game Informer, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker director, Shinya Hiratake, dreamt of creating a game which were made up of small diorama-like levels, where that main character couldn’t jump. The player would, instead, have to move the camera around the level to help guide your character to the goal. This dream eventually lead itself to become Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker however, this dream actually started off staring Link, the main protagonist from The Legend of Zelda franchise.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
