We want more of this fan animation of Zelda: BOTW

This fanmade Zelda: Breath of the Wild animation is very cool.


This person's The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild fan animation is something we need to see more of.

User QianyaYin uploaded a short clip to Vimeo that finds our hero Link saving the day in a very heartwarming way, torn straight out of the pages from Breath of the Wild.

"I spent about two months on finishing this animation with Youyang Kong," wrote QianyaYin on the Vimeo page. The production includes music by Sihan Yuan and sound by Doudou, according to the page's credits.

The fan animation is a gorgeous, hand-drawn adventure that finds Link facing off against a Guardian and planning his moves from behind a rock while a terrified Korok cowers beside him.

The dynamic animation is very impressive, and it truly feels as though you're witnessing a moment torn straight out of the game. with Link leaping high in the air, deflecting lasers with his shield, and taking out multiple enemies at the same time.

When Link goes to comfort the Korok that knocks him over with a hug, you know you've watched something special. The animated short may be over quickly, but it's clear a very talented team put it together. We'd love to see a longer version of it someday, but a lot of work went into making this reel as it is. There isn't any official animation project out there for Zelda fans, and this really does scratch that particular itch. Come on, Nintendo – they're on the right track! They could make a full-length feature!

If you've never played The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it's available now on Nintendo Switch and Wii U, and you can take on the role of Link just like what you saw in the animation in-game. You probably won't be hugged by any Koroks, but you can feel good about taking out monsters just the same.

Thanks for the tip, Valcan_S!
