Philosophy of the Wind Waker

The Wind Waker Scene Artwork ThumbHylian Dan, acclaimed writer over at Zelda Universe has completed his five piece article on The Philosophy of the Wind Waker. The article takes a very indepth look at the game and analyzes many of the individual characters. In some sense it is a full walkthrough of the storyline, spotting many of the common themes throughout the title. Perhaps the most prominent theme is the notion of not holding on to the past and instead shooting for a better and brighter future.

If you are a hardcore fan of the Wind Waker and can recognize even the most minor of characters, then this article will surely be a delight to read. It is a bit lengthy though and if you are starting from the beginning it’s quite the journey to get through it, but it is nicely divided into five pieces. You can find part one of the article by clicking here.
