The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is a great game about a young boy (approximately 10-12 years old, although he has the maturity of a much older person) named ‘Link’. The game is set hundreds of years after the events of the ‘Ocarina of Time’ game (the developers recently said that all of the games are linked and that there is a basic timeline between them). To put simply, this game is pure fun in a small box, and is the most rewarding game I’ve played on the GameCube ever. When the first Zelda the Wind Waker walkthrough was published, many people were disappointed by the level of detail into the story, so I have come to resurrect that, and to include the missing detail that was craved.
Though many hardcore fans wrote this game off before it was even released, due to the cell-shaded, ‘kiddie’ graphics, it is actually a extremely, deep, amazing game. It’s amazing to think, but this game is actually the tenth installment in The Legend of Zelda series. It was originally released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2002.
At the start of the Zelda the Wind Waker walkthrough, we see a young Link living with his sister and his grandmother, on a small island. The world in which they live is almost completely covered by sea. After Link sees a girl being taken into the forest by a giant bird, he sets off to rescue her. Upon rescuing her, he finds out she is a captain of a ship. She proceeds to take link to the Forsaken Fortress, where he hopes to find out what’s been going on. Link is captured, and then subsequently rescued by a talking boat called the King of Red Lions, who tells Link all about the evil Lord Ganon. After acquiring the Master Sword, Link must on a number of different quests in order to retrieve 8 different Triforce charts. Once the location is revealed, Link heads for Ganondorf’s tower, where he is told that he is the ‘Hero of Time’ reborn. After a long fight with Ganon, Link and Zelda escape on the King of Red Lions in search of a new world.
