The Wind Waker Rewritten gives the GameCube classic a mature touch. The Rewritten provides us something to do while we wait for a Switch remake.
After 1998’s Ocarina of Time, Zelda dominated the action-adventure genre. The game in 2002 was polarising for its “childish” design. The cel-shaded Wind Waker has become a cult classic, but someone recreated it for adults.
What was changed in The Wind Waker?
The Rewritten includes 10,000 additional lines of speech, reimagining every character. The project’s video shows no new level or gameplay concept. The Rewritten rewrites the game’s plot.
Rewritten adds textures and cinematics. Description: “The Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker reimagines the Great Sea. Waker Rewritten rewrites the Gamecube classic’s dialogue from front to back to present a new tale inside the same framework.”
Beedle says, “Holy sh*t, I adore customers,” and the King of the Red Lions is a bounty hunter. “Wind Waker was a big part of my upbringing, so this would be a terrific way to relive it,” said one enthusiast.
Are we Going to Get The Wind Waker Remaster?
Rewritten gives us even more incentive to play The Wind Waker. If you want to play the overlooked Zelda classic, you’ll need ROMs or a GameCube. Nintendo hasn’t announced a remake/remaster. HD was released for the Wii U in 2013, but fans want it on the Switch.
In the nine years after The Wind Waker HD, a lot has happened technologically. Nintendo seems unwilling to remake the game as Capcom did with Resident Evil. With Zelda’s Breath of the Wild 2 coming out next year, Nintendo may focus on Toon Link.
