There’s a sweet story lurking in the credits of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild of a Nintendo fan who’s now living the dream. Twitter user @GeneticJen traced the name of Wildlife Programmer Corey Bunnell back to a 2007 forum post, where, just out of high school, he discusses his dream of moving to Japan and working for Nintendo.

What a turn of events! This is a really heartwarming story, and so inspirational for others who want to break into the games industry! Dreams really can come true!
