SS Potion Shop

“All the other stores have one clerk, but we hadn’t decided the details for the potion shop and item check, so we had 5 designers sketch them. We chose the characters that we could expand our ideas upon the most. There were a lot of designs that weren’t used, and it’s a real shame! We rearranged some of them to use as different characters instead.”
(Hirono, Designer)

    After seeing all of the alternative versions of the potion shop couple, I’m glad they stuck with the one in final game (Though the wife getting angry when the husband talks too long with Link is pretty funny).
