The lights are on
There was a time, right after The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker's art style was first revealed, that we really wanted the game to look closer to this. I think it's fair to say that we all grew to love Wind Waker's art direction pretty quickly, and after seeing it in this Skyrim style, I have to say that I love it even more. This looks nice and all, and the modders did a good job, but it just doesn't have the same memorable impact that it does when it has the colors of Wind Waker. You can check out the video below.

It looks beautiful, the modders were quite detailed, and it looks fantastic from afar. But when you get closer to the gritty details, it loses the charm that Wind Waker did so well.
Brings back memories.
As wrong as this art style would be in Wind Waker i do hope the next zelda is a more realistic game
Wow, that's awesome. Now, if only Skyrim wasn't dark and disgusting looking.
It's kinda cool, but it's making me wanna play the original :)
thats pretty cool
As cool as this mod looks, it doesn't match the charm of Wind Waker's art style. Western gamers have a hard on for realistic everything. I always thought of WW's Link as a 3D version of aLttP's Link, my favorite in the series next to Ocarina.
Nostalgia is kicking in. Good thing i have wind waker and a wii.
Ahhh... Wind Waker was awesome... Man, there oughta be a Wind Waker remake or like a upgrade and put for the 3DS. Majora's Mask 3D is also taking so freaking long to make... Hurry up, Nintendo!!
Watched this while listening to Hans Zimmer's 'Radical Notion'... felt like I was watching a trailer for a game that I would really LOVE to play! Gave me chills.
