Forums - Gaming Discussion - Windbound might be an actually well done Zelda love letter

According to this new gameplay trailer, they could have also called it Breathwaker:

If it turns out to be at least decent, I‘ll get it on XSX. Out on August 28th on all platforms.

This art style is very pleasant. So this, Rareware's Everwild, and Gods and Monsters all looking inspired by BotW. I welcome these developments.



Looks like a nice blend of Breath of the Wild and Wind Waker. It's very much on my radar.



My gf and I were chuckling yesterday while watching the trailer — it’s just SO similar to Zelda.

But that’s far from a bad thing! I will definitely give it a try.



I bet it will be comparably short and rough in game design, but let‘s keep in mind this is made by a small team without decades of experience.

Looks and sounds really nice, I hope I‘ll like it better than Oceanhorn.

Oceanhorn is the reason for why I'm keeping my expectations in check with Windbound. I thought Oceanhorn looked really promising and expected a Wind Waker Lite experience, but in the end I didn't enjoy it at all.



Indie Wind Waker looks nice indeed. Hope it gets a nice reception if it ends up good on it's promise.

Seen that trailer before, looks decent, though while being inspired by something is good in itself, when a game is this similar you’ll inevitably start comparing and at that point you’re probably just want to play the real thing.

Don't forget about Genshin Impact.
