Looks like 'Zelda: Breath of the Wild' has a heartwarming tribute to Iwata



During the development of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata passed away, but it looks like his legacy is forever immortalized in the lands of Hyrule.
A character in Breath of the Wild named Botrick has an uncanny resemblance to Iwata, who passed away in 2015, and leads Link to an area called Satori Mountain, which has a name similar to Iwata's. Around Satori Mountain are several possible homages to Iwata including an apple orchard, an abandoned campsite and a legendary animal called the Lord of the Mountain, also known by the name Satori.
The unconfirmed tribute is subtle but powerful and shows the impact Iwata had on Nintendo as well as the respect Iwata earned from the company's developers. 
While we're not 100% sure if this is indeed meant to be a tribute to Iwata, we've asked Nintendo for confirmation and will update if we hear back.
