Wind Waker HD takes place several centuries after Ocarina Of Time. The game takes place on a vast ocean known as the Great Sea which is filled with tiny islands. The game opens on Outset island where Link lives with his sister and grand mother. Whilst celebrating his birthday, Link rescues a girl from the woods after a creature drops her there. This leads to Link’s sister being captured by the mysterious creature. The adventure then turns to Link having to rescue his sister from the evil Ganon.
As you’d expect, Wind Waker HD looks absolutely stunning on the Wii U. It’s the nicest looking game to date on the system. This is all thanks to the upgraded HD textures that really pop thanks to the beautiful cell-shaded backgrounds. Link animates much smoother than he did in the Gamecube version and has a lot more expression on his face depending on what situation he is in.
The new lighting engine that this game uses is absolutely phenomenal. Outset Island looks better than ever and I found myself getting lost in this game just looking at all the beautiful scenery. This isn’t something that I remember doing in the original. Sure the art style was interesting but I was never in awe of just how good it looked. The amazing soundtrack sounds better than ever before and really keeps you immersed n the world.
