The Legend of Zelda: The Windwaker was released in March of 2003 in North America. The game features the first ever use of cel-shading in the Zelda series. The look was chosen in order to reflect the world of this Link, a young child. Though heavily criticized before release, the game proved to be one of the best Zelda games released.

The story starts you out as a young Link on his home island of Outset. When Link spots a curious crash in the woods at the heights of the island, he grabs a sword and heads out to investigate. After rescuing the stranger that fell into the woods, he watches as his sister, Aryll, is kidnapped by a large bird. This starts Link out on his adventure across the seas.
