Nintendo release a video showing Eiji Aonuma, producer behind The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild , as he unboxes the game’s limited edition, all the while describing the process that went into designing the many feature of both the set, and the game’s assets.

He begins with the box art, noting that it is one of the primary pieces of art used in the game before (rather dramatically) moving onto the soundtrack. The music, Aonuma-San says, took a lot of though and was carefully crafted for the game.

Next up is the game itself. Aonuma-San reveals that the artwork for this particular copy is actually exclusive to European versions, all the while praising the combination of blue and green.

After some struggling, the next and final item revealed is… A box! This box features both the English and Japanese logo for the game which Aonuma-San felt was a nice touch. Inside this second box is revealed to be a model of the Master Sword of Resurrection. The sword looks old and battered, Aonuma-San says that in order to discover why, and the significance of the flower on the model, players will just have to play the game.

You can watch the entire unboxing down below:
