NPCs in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Are Advanced Miis


Twitter user @HEYimHeroic has discovered that the NPCs in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild use an advanced version of the Mii format.

According to @HEYimHeroic, this discovery means that players will be able to inject the Miis of their choosing through modding. The title uses something called UMiis that have nearly all the same parameters as the Miis on the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo Wii U systems, albeit with a few minor differences. The only main limitation is the fact that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild does not support every hairstyle that Miis do.

Examples of this include Barret’s rendition from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Matt from Wii Sports, the personal Mii Alice, and Gunner from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
