A user on Reddit thought it was a good idea to take an eight-year-old game and recreate it using better graphics. It wasn’t an obscure game that needed it, it was The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. You know, the game we all thought was going to look realistic and we got super cel-shading for our troubles? Well, user 50CALBR posted a bunch of pictures on his reddit account depicting the games opening island, Outset, in stunning realistic graphics. It’s almost how we envisioned it before our dreams were crushed.
You can check out the rest of the pictures at Kotaku and they are pretty spectacular. Just imagine if the game looked like that instead of what we actually got. Not to knock on The Wind Waker, but the graphics have always been the first thing ridiculed about that game, so to see it the way we thought it might is finally refreshing. Let us know which way you like Outset, the original cel-shaded or this re-imaging of it.
