Zelda Wind Waker HD Beaten In Under An Hour!
Of all of the Zelda games release, The Wind Waker is probably the one that divides the fans the most. It certainly decided the review community. I do stand to be corrected, but I’m fairly sure that this is the game that inspired the infamous review summary “too much water” meme.
I played it myself and quite enjoyed it, albeit I never finished it. Twitch Streamer ian_Miles29 has beaten it. In fact, he’s achieved the amazing task of beating the whole time in a speedrun time of just under an hour. Yes, from start to killing Ganon in under an hour!
A Few Tricks Required
To achieve this time is exceptionally impressive, but obviously, a few glitches were required to make it happen. This game used to have a speedrun time of over 3 hours until the ‘barrier skip’ was discovered. This essentially allowed you to leave the starting game area early. Think of it as being able to escape the first part of Zelda Breath of the Wild without falling to your death.
He Completed the Game While I Was Still Figuring It Out
As above, the Wind Waker is a decidedly different Zelda game. For the same amount of time, it took ian_miles29 to set this speed run I was still finding my way around the first island. Either way, I’m highly impressed and if you have never played this Zelda game, it’s well worth checking out!
