Given that Breath of the Wild has been out for over two years now, you might think that all of its secrets would have been ousted already. This is apparently not the case, as YouTuber GameExplain has discovered an island that bares more than a striking resemblance to the starting village in Wind Waker.
In GameExplain’s video, side by side comparisons are drawn between the island in Breath of the Wild and Wind Waker’s Outset Island. You can check out the video for yourself below, though as far as we’re concerned there are too many similarities for it to be mere coincidence.
The high lookout post is clearly where it should be, and there’s even a boat where the King of Red Lion would dock in Wind Waker. It’s frankly remarkable that this secret has managed to stay hidden for this long, suggesting that we surely haven’t heard the last from Breath of the Wild in terms of secrets.
Of course, this wouldn’t mark the first time locations from other Zelda games have cropped up in BOTW, as Lon Lon Ranch, and even Headstone Island have all been represented. If you want to head to faux-Outset Island in Breath of the Wild, you can watch the video for its exact location. It’s called Lurelin Village in BOTW, and sits to the South of the map.
