The Legend of Zelda Minish Cap Animated In Studio Ghibli Style Is A Perfect Fit (VIDEO)
Nintendo is quite aware that it owes a great debt to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild for its hugely successful launch of The Nintendo Switch. The latest core entry for the franchise wowed players with its gripping gameplay and stunning visuals of a beautifully designed Hyrule. The stellar imagery inspired some creative fans to depict what Breath of the Wild might look like were it to be drawn by the legendary Studio Ghibli. Now, one talented fan has crafted an animated clip of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap as if it were also animated by the hit anime studio.
Reddit user Ranadx recently shared their The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap animation in a new video uploaded to their official Reddit page. For those unfamiliar, The Minish Cap was a Legend of Zelda game for the Game Boy Advance that served as a prequel to The Four Swords. The main “gimmick” of the game is the ability for Link to shrink down to a very small size, with the help of the titular Minish Cap.
Given the natural environments seen in the game, and the similarity of the shrinking aesthetic seen in Studio Ghibli works, Ranadx felt it fitting to visualize what a Minish Cap film animated by Studio Ghibli might look like. It’s a very brief clip, but it does prove that the visual style is a perfect fit for the whimsical game. Hopefully one day, we get to see a feature animated film starring everyone’s favorite Hylian. Let’s just pray we don’t need to time travel with the master sword to see it finally happen.
