The Walls Of Breath Of The Wild’s Astral Observatory Form An Accurate Map Of The Game’s Landmarks

Even though Breath of the Wild has been out for around four years, players are still discovering new secrets. A Reddit user recently noticed that the walls of the Astral Observatory accurately depict large landmarks throughout the map.

If you haven’t played Breath of the Wild, then this may contain some spoilers, so be careful! The Astral Observatory has appeared in a few Legend of Zelda games. In Majora’s Mask, the observatory serves as the location of Professor Shikashi. In Breath of the Wild though, the Astral Observatory is where you go to fight Calamity Ganon.

Reddit user Chicken_Vomit_ pointed out that, from the Astral Observatory, you can see landmarks from the map depicted on the walls. These landmarks are in the right locations as well. For example, the depiction of Mount Lanayru is in the same direction as the real Mount Lanayru.

Interestingly, the Astral Observatory also shows all four divine beasts. Hyrule Castle was constructed before Calamity Ganon rose to power. Since there was no Calamity Ganon, there would be no need for the divine beasts. Many commenters pointed out that the Astral Observatory might have been made by the Sheikah to hold Calamity Ganon because they knew what events would take place.

This isn’t as strange as it sounds though. As we know, the Sheikah are capable of prophesizing future events throughout a few Zelda games. Given this, it’s not too far-fetched to think that the Sheikah predicted the events in Breath of the Wild, down to the final boss fight.

The Astral Observatory discovery comes shortly after another Reddit user discovered that you can see all four of the divine beasts from the top of the chimney on Link’s house. This is another cool addition because there are not many locations (besides mountaintops) where you can see all four at the same time. It’s not the most significant piece of information, but it’s cool that it just happens to be the top of Link’s house.

Currently, there is no new information on Breath of the Wild 2. Hopefully, we get some information later this year. If you haven’t played Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity yet, be sure to give it a try! The Musou-style game is set right before the events of Breath of the Wild.
