The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is one of the best-reviewed games of all time, and it’s undoubtedly helping the sales of the Nintendo Switch. The game is a pretty radical departure from past Legend of Zelda games, and tomorrow Nintendo is going to release a three-part behind-the-scenes special to show how the game was created.

“Tomorrow at 6 a.m. Pacific Time, we’ll be debuting a three-part series called The Making of The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild!” the official Nintendo Twitter account announced.

Interest in the latest Legend of Zelda game is at a peak right now, and the company has already shown off a surprising amount about how the game was designed. We learned that the team created a 2D version of what would become Breath of the Wild to test out the game’s systems, and a bit of that experimental work was shown at this year’s Game Developers Conference.

The game’s developers have also talked about suffering the death of Nintendo president Satoru Iwata during the game’s production.

“When he passed away, there were moments we’d come up with an idea which we’d be excited to talk to Iwata about,” Hidemaro Fujibayashi, the game’s director, told the New Yorker. “Then we’d remember he was no longer here. Miyamoto told me it was the same for him. He’d come up with an idea at the weekend and would feel excited to speak to Iwata about it on Monday, only to remember. The sadness runs deep. This is approaching spiritual talk, but we had the sense that he was watching over our work. That became a source of motivation, a drive for us to improve and be better.”

We’re not sure exactly what to expect from this three-part video, nor even how it will be shown. Join us tomorrow to watch the special right here, and see what else we can learn about the creation of this amazing game.

Tomorrow at 6 AM PT, we’ll be debuting a three-part series called The Making of The Legend of #Zelda: Breath of the Wild! pic.twitter.com/bTDROEZ8i0
