Reddit user thepixelartist, who is a “professional 3D artist” by trade, has taken the raw game files included with The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker and turned them into something so glorious I’m getting dizzy just looking at them.
Inspired by user 50CALBR’s earlier efforts, he’s got the game’s Outset Island looking absolutely stunning, and in some shots has also replaced the game’s water and foliage with stuff that’s a little more photogenic.
I’m not sure the game’s original creative vision needed those latter changes, but the overall sensation of seeing this in such a high definition blows even the experience of playing Wind Waker via Dolphin, ahem, out of the water.
Disclaimer: Wind Waker is my single favourite video game of all time.
