How much can we learn about Zelda in less than five minutes? Game Informer held a rapid-fire Q&A sesh with Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma where they asked the pair 51 questions in a row, mostly about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. If you’re not in a situation where you can play audio out loud, we’ve transcribed the best of their answers below.

“I’m not good at sports, but I like them.”
