It’s incredibly fascinating to me how much the community’s love for Zelda inspires them to spend as much time as they do ripping the games apart.
I don’t mean this in the ranting-because-a-game-didn’t-live-up-to-expectations sense, but in the ripping-elements-from-the-iso-file sense.
In addition to all the other Skyward Sword-related hacks we’ve seen since the early demo leaks last year, one fan has now imported elements from Wind Waker into the Skyward Sword engine.
In the video below, you’ll find that youtube user Manki500 has imported the Outset Island stage into Skyward Sword.
Naturally, the environment doesn’t interact as properly as it does in Wind Waker, but Manki500 plans on adding water collision, a skybox, and lighting at a future point in time.
