EP 67 - The Cell Shaded Boy Wonder: The Legend of Zelda Wind Waker
Mar 06, 2023 Episode 67

When Wind Waker was originally announced during Space World 2001, fans revolted. With one trailer, Nintendo reversed course on the "adult gamer" trend and planted their flag as the maverick company unafraid to buck tradition. Twenty years later, it's a beloved game.

On this episode of A Gamer Looks at 40, we explore the memories and recollections of the people who loved this game then just as much as they do now and see if we can discover how Wind Waker rose from the waves to become a true classic.
