Last week, we informed you about a fan-made Zelda game that was based on the prototype version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Zelda: Breath of the NES. Well, as you may have guessed, Nintendo issued a C&D letter.
The good news here is that its creator is willing to continue development. As such, Winter Drake will delete any references to the Zelda titles, and will use different assets.
By doing this, Winter Drake will be able to bypass this C&D letter (which is basically what most creators should do the moment they receive such takedown notices).
What this basically means is that this 2D top-down RPG project will see the light of day. It may take a while as Winter Drake will have to create new assets for it, however it will be released!
Don't worry! The game will live on, I just need time for my artist to make all new high quality replacement art
