It’s the 30th anniversary of Legend of Zelda this year and Nintendo is releasing some very cool items in celebration. The latest are original design documents for various sections and levels of the classic hit. The drawings are from the masters themselves, Shigeru Miyamoto and Takashi Tezuka, and highlight Nintendo’s planning sheets along with showing color mapping and scale. This might be about as cool as it gets. It’s interesting to see how these games were mapped and designed, and gives early insights into game design and development.
