Feature: Celebrating Ten Years of The Wind Waker

Nintendo Life: This week marked the 10th anniversary of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker’s European release, a title that’s equally one of the most beloved and controversial titles in the entire Zelda franchise. Launched on the GameCube between 2002 and 2003 worldwide, The Wind Waker had a troubled launch, due largely to a backlash from some fans regarding the change from realistic Link to cel-shaded Link. Yet for some it’s like a fine wine, and The Wind Waker has matured with age – some opinion now is that the cartoonish, cel-shaded styling of the Great Sea is one of the most ambitious and successful graphical palettes ever committed to disk. With its charming cast of characters, storyline and excellent gameplay, it’s now highly regarded by a fair number of Zelda fans. (Culture, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker)
