Informative video game channel Did You Know Gaming? is back with a new investigative video looking at a newly discovered The Legend of Zelda spin-off from Retro Studios which was pitched to Nintendo. The game was titled Heroes of Hyrule and centres around three heroes which consisted of a Goron, a Rito, and a Zora. In the past all three were tasked with saving Link who was captured by the evil Ganon while trying to save Princess Zelda. Ganon is slayed but he retreats into an antique spellbook titled Book of Ganon. Link takes the book into safe keeping so that Ganon can never be revived again The story then fast forwards 100 years and Link is now a much older man running an antique shop. Did You Know Gaming? says that the gameplay would have been a lot like Final Fantasy Tactics. The team will talk more about this unearthed project in another video. Here’s some concept artwork from Heroes of Hyrule.
