Twilight Princess Retrospective: Episode 2 Focuses on Story and Characters

Well, that didn’t take long. Nintendo has just released the second entry in its Twilight Princess Retrospective video series. This time around, the development team discusses not only the game’s narrative, but also some of its favorite characters from throughout the adventure. Take a look after the jump.

I love how simplistic Eiji Aonuma’s inspiration behind Wolf Link is. The guy has a random dream in which he’s a wolf and locked in a jail cell; the next morning, he just says “it’d be kind of cool to have Link transform into a wolf.” Of course, he mentions how it symbolically ties into Link’s role as the hero, but I admire the seemingly free-spirited nature of his decision making process.

What did you think of episode 2? Do you sympathize with Aonuma’s desire to be scolded by someone like Telma? Let us know in the comments below.
