Wind Waker is 10!
A decade of cel-shaded brilliance
Published on 04/05/2013

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is a game that is very dear to my heart. Aside from its beautiful aesthetics and mesmerising gameplay, it is the game that introduced me to the Zelda series, and the game that put me on the path to becoming a games journalist. Quite simply, it is a game that changed my life.

So to celebrate its tenth anniversary, I wanted to put together something special and memorable, something that would show how beloved and important a title this game really is. I pitched a collaboration idea to the NL team, and the support came flooding in. As a game I love so much, it was incredibly heart-warming to see such support from the team, and I think the end result is a true testament to how good the game is. It's a great read and should explain why the game is just so loved.

Here's to the next decade!
