The following comes from Game Informer's feature on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
I really love all the animals in the world. Even with the horses, you really get to know the horse and raise them and ride them, and even with the other animals, you can just view them, or if you get hungry you might have to hunt them. You have that choice. And even when you look up at the sky, you see birds on their way somewhere and it's fun to think, "Where are they going to end up? Where are they going?" - Shigeru Miyamoto
