Link 2

Joel Furtado, a Canadian animator, has created an amazing work styled after The Wind Waker. This “sequel” titled The Legend of Zelda: The Lost Oracle, is his own vision of what such a game might be like were it ever to be made on the Wii U.

More info after the jump!

Although the design for Link comes from The Wind Waker, the enemy designs are similar to those in Twilight Princess, creating an interesting mix of ideas using both games’ art direction. In addition, the backgrounds are awe-inspiring digitally-painted pieces, atop which the 3D models move.

The “game” looks to be a side-scrolling type of game in Furtado’s eyes, similar to Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. What would you think if another game of that style was made today?

    This guy should defiantly create a fan made game. He has lots of talent that should be shown.

  • Well there already is a sequel to Wind Waker…..
    I thought this was a sequel to the Oracle games because it has Oracle in the name.
    It looks awesome.

    • stvian

      Originally the Oracle games were going to be a trilogy, but was cut back to two instead, so…

  • RedVirtue

    This will definitly cause some mixed reactions on the web for those who think this is real.

  • SpaGheTTi

    That's some awe… AWESOME!!

  • Sapientia

    I would play that! Nintendo should check this out; following Dark Sage for that matter šŸ˜€

  • Creations like this always make me proud to be a Zelda fan–this is gorgeous!

  • Anon

    Let me be the first to say, AWESOME!

    That said, isn't this a sequel to the Oracle games, not Wind Waker?

    • That's the same thing I said.
      I checked his website and youtube description and it didn't say what it was a sequel to

  • King of Cowards

    reminds me of a Disney movie

  • bastian

    So beautiful. I want to play this now!

    This is amazing! First of all, I'd like to thank Joel Furtado for taking his time to do this, it's always exciting to see the hard work fan's put together to share their talent and ideas to the Zelda world. I love vibe and layout of each setting. As the scenes change, the art style flows flawlessly. For some reason this made me think that it would be really cool to see a zelda multiplayer mode on the Wii U where one player is playing Link on the tv screen, as the other player is creating the next rooms of the dungeon on the Wii U touch screen controller as he progresses through. Or the Wii U controller player could have it's dungeon and enemies pre layed out, and then that player could take controller of it's enemies and "dungeon traps" like arrow walls or lava spouts.

    See I would love to see something like this on the 3DS the styling reminds me of a mix of Wind Waker and the new Rayman Origins. I think the next original Zelda for the 3DS would look quite nice like this

  • HyruleWeirdo

    Looks very anime-ish.

  • Oh nvm damn it

  • Angelo Mota

    This would be a perfect Zelda 3DS game *.*

    Just LOVED it šŸ˜‰

  • HylianWarrior

    THAT IS FREAKING EPIC. too bad it's a fan-made…

  • sdin

    For the love of the mother of f*ck!… I dont post here often but this is amazing

  • Sanity's_Theif

    Damn, looks like a lot of work went into this, the animating is rather well done

    Though I hate to be brutally honest, but I think the Wii U Zelda tech demo still looks better

  • That was AWESOME! Would so play that game if it was real!

  • KPisZelda

    I have such mixed emotions: I know there's no WW sequel to be made (PH and ST are already DS games) but I really like the smooth integration of WW and TP (and even Miis?) here. I don't know how keen I'd be for a whole console game to be played with such graphics, I personally am moving towards more TP like graphics, even SS. But kudos to the maker of this video, it's impeccable! They have such talent, I hope they go far šŸ™‚
    The best bit though was definitely the title logo. Just… amazing. And the name of the game, it would make such a great game, "The Lost Oracle". wowza!

    Excuse me while I change my Huggies…

  • trinity waffles

    This is gorgeous. Beautifully painted background and animation. This guy did a job well done on everything, I wish it was official!

  • Whitney

    I find it interesting that it was called the "Lost Oracle" because there were originally supposed to be three oracle games (they were called by a different name at the time) but it eventually got bumped down to two games.

    It would be nice to see this as a real game. I was impressed with his work.

  • Soulless Creature

    Nintendo should watch this, buy his idea, hire him and use his imagination to create new innovative games. Also Zelda with that art style would look beautiful.

  • Jabberwuck

    Im OK with another sidscroller Zelda. Just as long as death mountains not hard as sh*t.

  • alrightmullet

    awesome!!

  • Oni Link

    THIS IS PURE TALENT, SO AMAZING.

  • jjb56

    I'd like to see a Zelda game with this art style! and if the roc's feather would make a comeback… Epic.
