Piglets replaced Cuccos in The Wind Waker, serving as the new wild animal that Link could interact with. Of course, while they were infinitely more adorable, they lacked the one ability that their feathered adversaries had: flight. In the latest instalment of Nintendo Everything‘s web series Eggbusters, your host Austin corrects Mother Nature’s mistakes.

In celebration of National Prime Rib Day (yup, that’s a thing), all three glitches in this episode focus on our porky pals, and each one sees them being released into the air in some way. He may have slain Ganondorf, but let’s see how Link fares against the might of the NSPCA.

All glitches appear to be incredibly easy to accomplish if you follow the instructions. Thought Link’s farewell was sad? Wait until you see all-grown-up Link the pig float away towards the ocean. You can also launch him across Outset Island, and allow the Windfall Island piggies to swim through the air. With flying skills like that, you won’t be makin’ bacon out of these critters!

    Not only did I not know about these glitches, but I never knew they named the pig after you, AND I didn't know about that pig mini-game. I find that kinda hard to believe considering how long I've had the game and how much I've played it. Nonetheless, cool episode. 🙂

    I always figured that the reason that cucco flight was left out of Wind Waker was because you already had flight via the Deku Leaf.

      In Majora's Mask, you could fly with the Deku Flowers and the Cuccos are still there.

      I think it's all about the timeline placement.

    I didn't know you could move the camera while a dialog box was on the screen. I guess I will have to play my favorite game again. I wonder if there is going to be an upgraded version released any time soon. ;-D

    I like Austin's last sentiment about not being jerks.

  • Thanks , I have recently been looking for info about this topic for a long time and yours is the best I’ve found out so far. But, what about the bottom line? Are you certain in regards to the source?|What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you are now not really much more smartly-favored than you may be now. You are very intelligent.

  • you have a wonderful blog here! do you want to make some invite posts in this little weblog?

  • I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, however I assumed this put up used to be good. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are not already. Cheers!

  • The entire ship is edible, although the King of Red Lions is carved out of foam and chocolate. The maker wanted to stay true to the style of The Wind Waker by using boxy shapes and smooth finishes throughout.
