Thanks to Hestu’s Gift, Breath of the Wild Director Confirms that Korok Seeds are Actually Just Korok Poop
Posted on January 01 2018 by Kristen G. Rosario
It has already been said a billion times over, but I’ll say it again: getting all 900 Korok Seeds in Breath of the Wild is not worth it. Obtaining approximately 441 seeds is definitely worth the grind (for slot capacity), but anywhere beyond obtaining that amount is completionist levels of insanity. Not only does the director of the game confirm the “importance” of the Korok Seed prize, but also adds some context to this Zelda reward.
In an interview following this year’s Game Awards, Breath of the Wild director Hidemaro Fujibayashi was asked by IGN as to why the Zelda team chose Hestu’s Gift as the prize:
“We just kind of thought it would be funny to make that a big joke.”
He then provides context to what the Korok Seeds actually are:
“It’s just the backstory, the kind of hidden kind of thing in the game the whole way is that the Korok seeds are actually Korok poop.”
