If you’ve ever paid attention during the countless hours you’ve spent exploring the vast Hyrule in Breath of the Wild, you might have recognised some names or characters that reminded you of something. From Beedle the merchant to Linebeck Island, from the four Divine Beasts to Lake Saria, you can’t miss those names referring previous titles in the franchise. They’re everywhere, but they’re not always that obvious.
This is why GameXplain picked up their Lens of Truth and looked for locations you can find scattered throughout Hyrule that refer directly to pretty much all the previous Zelda games (Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword, Minish Cap, Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, Zelda NES, Link to the Past, Link’s Awakening). Pfew!
