Legend⁤ of ⁣Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Director Imagines Ganondorf as a Charismatic Villain That “Men⁢ and Women​ Would Fall For”

With the 25th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: ⁣Ocarina of Time on the horizon, the director of Tears of the Kingdom, ⁣Tatsuya Kitamura, has revealed how he wanted​ to reimagine the iconic villain Ganondorf. During a recent interview with, Kitamura said, “[Ganondorf] ‌ was a charismatic villain that men and women would fall⁢ for. I​ imagined him as a ⁢cool-looking person who looks different from ⁣what other villains look like.”

Kitamura continued, “The challenge​ for us was how to portray an intimidating enemy ⁣while also making ⁣him attractive. ‌In Tears of the Kingdom, we did this by adding ‌a few⁤ unexpected details to make Ganondorf ​even more compelling. ⁣For example, we ​focused on his regal and elegant nature by incorporating details such as his gray ​hair, a cape, and a stylish demeanor.”

Kitamura elaborated on how he wanted to add a bit of mystery to Ganondorf’s character. Kitamura said, ⁣”Ganondorf never fully reveals his true agenda so he remains⁣ an⁣ unpredictable character. He’s mysterious and has an air of mystery about him. At the ​same time, he can be persuasive when he needs to be and he has a sense of humor that adds to his charm. All of these elements combined help to make him a more compelling villain.”

Kitamura also explained that while Ganondorf’s motivations‍ are never fully revealed, the ‍team at Monolith Soft‍ wanted to⁢ make sure that players could connect with and understand Ganondorf’s actions. Kitamura said, “We wanted to tap⁤ into ‍the part of him that resonates with players and allows⁤ them to understand why he is the way he is – even if they ⁢don’t agree with his methods or actions. We wanted to create a villain who has a strong backstory but still carries​ an unexpected charm – something that goes beyond a stereotypical villain.”

As the 25th anniversary of The⁣ Legend of Zelda: Ocarina ⁤of Time ⁣ approaches, fans can look forward to getting to know the reimagined Ganondorf as they further explore the world of Tears of the Kingdom.
