Mii lovers, by no means quit hope, because it seems that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom nonetheless makes use of them to make its NPCs.
Ah, Miis. Simply the perfect factor to come back out of the Wii, they had been an extremely enjoyable and foolish solution to make variations of you and your mates, even when they’re fairly restricted in what you’ll be able to really do. Nonetheless, they left an enduring impression on Wii homeowners, as they nonetheless exist proper thus far, even having relevance because of the port of Miitopia on Nintendo Change in 2021. One factor you won’t learn about them is that Miis are literally the premise of many of the NPCs you discover in Breath of the Wild, with modding even letting you import Miis to customize the NPCs. Effectively there’s some excellent news for Tears of the Kingdom gamers who had been hoping that might be the case within the sequel, as it’s!
As shared by Alice, or HEYimHeroic, who made the unique discovery for Breath of the Wild, Tears of the Kingdom makes use of the very same system to make a few of its extra generic human NPCs. “Similar to in Breath of the Wild, the human NPCs in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom use a complicated model of Miis!” wrote Alice on Twitter. “Modding the sport permits us to import Miis as Tears of the Kingdom NPCs!” They even offered some modded NPCs to indicate you precisely what they imply, and sure, they did use the one and solely Matt (those that know, know).
It is a enjoyable little easter egg for people who prefer to know among the behind the scenes bits, and I for one respect it being somebody who spent an excessive amount of time making Miis as a child. I am additionally glad to see one thing so enjoyable return for Tears of the Kingdom, although I can not forgive the very fact you continue to cannot pet the canine (and you’ll’t play as Zelda both).
