Hey, everyone. GameStop apparently listed two official strategy guides for the upcoming Wind Waker remake for the Wii U. As you can see in the image above, there are two of them. One being for the “Collector’s Edition”, and the other for the regular game. Now, we haven’t heard anything about a Collector’s Edition, and while it’s possible that a Collector’s Edition will see the light, this very well may be just for the strategy guide. Guess we’ll find out soon enough!
Hey, everybody! I bet you forgot we had a podcast around here! Because I sure did, and that’s why it’s been a year since the last one came out. I really should get my memory examined. Regardless, we’re back, and we have a great podcast in store for you! I can guarantee that it’s better than last month’s podcast…
In this episode, Webmaster Mike interviews Jeron Moore, coordinator for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses, asking about the symphony and his other involvements in the gaming industry. This is followed by a discussion by several members of the Zelda Eternity staff (myself included) about the upcoming HD remake of The Wind Waker. There’s a whole lot of good stuff going on here (40 whole minutes, in fact), so pull up a chair, get comfy, and enjoy yet another edition of The Jabber Nut.
On the surface Wind Waker appears lighthearted and stunningly cartoonish, there are many friendships to be made and moments of hilarity. No other adventure game at that time (and hardly ever now) could outshine the cel-shaded Zelda for Gamecube because of these two inevitable occurrences. A grand opening leads us on a quest to save Link’s sister, but along the way we also encounter echos of tragedy, loss and a reluctant acceptance of fate. So many characters contribute to the overall story, and while some are oblivious to the situation that surrounds The Great Sea, their future still lies with you.
Hey, everyone! For today, we’re posting the below artwork sent in by Darkness of Zelda Wiki. The image below depicts many key characters in The Wind Waker.
With WW Month ending tomorrow, I want to thank all of our fans who’ve been with us during this month of celebration. We’re happy to have such great fans!
We’re in the final stretches of Wind Waker Month and there are plenty of things still to see! For today, we’ve got another post after the test rooms from earlier today. We have our final chapter of The Wind Waker walkthrough for this month, though more is to come later!
So feel free to look over our fourth chapter and suggest new ways we can possibly improve the layout and structure. Or even use it for your own Wind Waker help purposes. Make me feel useful here, guys.
Anyway, come back tomorrow for the final few days of Wind Waker Month! It’s not too late to send in artwork, fan works, and articles, so keep ‘em coming if you have a beautiful piece of fan work that you want us to showcase.
See you tomorrow!
This is only the second test room, but it is also the last post about them for Wind Waker Month. The other rooms aren’t represented very well on Youtube and the channel that does the best at showcasing these levels only has rooms one and two uploaded anyway. If only there were structured walkthrough-esque videos of every Wind Waker test room with decent commentary… Someone should really put something like that together, perhaps someone here at Zelda Eternity, or maybe one of our regulars will take up the challenge. In any case here it is, Test Room Numero Dos.
Well that wraps that up, kind of. Like the test rooms themselves this second TR post feels as if it’s lacking a definitive finish line. But you know, sometimes it’s actually better to not set up anything like that, because sometimes the best conclusion is no conclusion. Leaving room for a never ending, or something like that. Oh yeah, and a special thanks to Dimentio128 for uploading the videos.
Alfred Hitchcock was wrong– the birds aren’t here to kill us, they’re here to deliver our mail! Speaking of mail, they’re surprisingly male-dominant. I wonder if they have any special chainmail to sell us. Oh well. Better just blackmail the chief’s son until he gives us that pearl.
Hot on the heels of Shank’s story of the Zora-Rito evolution, I’ve got my own little article, which happens to pale in comparison! Happy Day 25 of Wind Waker Month! Though not confirmed, not even in Hyrule Historia, it makes sense that Dragon Roost Island seen in The Wind Waker is the same mountain as Death Mountain from the era of Ocarina of Time, supported by its relative closeness to Windfall Island, presumed to be Kakariko Village. But, as seen in The Wind Waker, the former Death Mountain is no longer home to the many Gorons who inhabited it in Ocarina of Time. In fact, there’s only three Gorons found in the entire Great Sea. So, what happened?
Hey, guys. So, I’d always thought about the evolution of the Zora to the Rito. Well, considering it’s Wind Waker month, I figured maybe I should put a little more thought into it, and maybe write a story about it.
So here’s Flight of the Zora for you all to read. There’s a short excerpt after the jump, with a link to get to the rest of the story. Enjoy!
Hey everyone! We’re getting so close to the last day of Wind Waker Month. I’m pretty excited! Day 30′s going to be full of fun-filled surprises. I hope everyone’s been enjoying the celebration so far!
For today we have a fan submission sent in by E-Man. The image was drawn in celebration of TWW’s 10th anniversary here in North America. Here are author’s comments:
“I am pleased by how this turned out. In fact, I used to be at a time that I would drool over pictures like this drawn by different artists. Now that I have the skills, I decided to take a crack at it! ……. And what better month to draw some fan art than Wind Waker month? I hope the other Zelda fans give this picture a warm welcome, and I also hope Tetra doesn’t kill poor Niko for dressing her up in that humiliating dolphin suit!”
Hit the jump for the artwork!
