Minecraft Hyrule Castle Build Recreates Scenery From Breath of the Wild

Minecraft Hyrule Castle build has been created and it showcases the legendary castle from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in lovingly blocky detail. We never quite got to see the castle in its best condition in the game, but a team of builders have done their best at recreating it in all of its majesty in Minecraft.

Take a look at the video of the Minecraft Hyrule Castle build and see what it looks like for yourself!


The Minecraft Hyrule Castle build wasn't made by a team of dedicated fans, either. Game Informer reports that a group of users from a Microsoft Partners Program Team spend goodness knows how long scouring promotional footage to get an idea of what the castle would have looked like on the inside before Ganon came along and made a mess of everything. They then took the information they gathered and got to building, doing their best to create their vision of what Hyrule Castle should look like in excruciating detail.

The video was posted on Nintendo's official Japanese YouTube channel in what may be a sign of the increasing partnership between the two companies. Rumors from February of this year indicated that we might be getting the Xbox Game Pass on the Nintendo Switch, but those seem to have been quashed in recent months. Still, there are whispers that the two companies have something planned together and we may be seeing something from the two of them together in the future.

We can't say for sure why exactly a Microsoft team spent all this time making Hyrule Castle from Breath of the Wild, but it certainly gets the noggin joggin'. Here's hoping that this is a sign of some cool things in the future.

What do you think of the Minecraft Hyrule Castle build? Do you think these big Minecraft builds look good with the original texture pack or should an effort be made to use better-looking textures and lighting? Let us know in the comments below!
