Through some mystical magic that is the Iwata asks segments that Nintendo does every now and then. We now have the chance to see some of the original game design documents for the original legend of Zelda. As you can see above that is the original sprite design sheet used by Miyamoto to design the characters and items of the game. You can see more after the jump.
Out of all the pieces this is the most interesting one. It seems like they were trying to a somewhat three dimensional design with the game. I wonder what the game would of been like if it was closer to this drawing then the game we got.
