Nintendo’s secretive offices in Kyoto are like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory for many of the company’s fans. While you’ll need more than a Golden Ticket to get in, one US developer achieved his dream and now works there. Reddit user Tizzlefix noticed an English name in amongst all the Japanese developers in Breath of the Wild’s credits and decided to find out who Corey Bunnell was. She found someone called Bunnell asking how he could get a job at Nintendo on the Translator’s Cafe forums back in 2007. While he got largely negative responses at the time, it seems everything worked out for Corey in the end.
Omg. BotW credits show almost exclusively Japanese designers/programers except this person. Search reveals a 2007 forum post pic.twitter.com/hBECZQxLC0
