A new mod for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is removing one of the game's most iconic features, draining the Great Sea and removing the game's water. The initial launch of the GameCube's first Zelda game saw a significantly different version of the beloved franchise than fans were expecting. Replacing the iconic kingdom of Hyrule was the vast openness of the Great Sea, tasking players with traversing the oceans of a flooded kingdom of Hyrule. Now, one fan creation is looking to reverse the flooding process within the game.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker's Great Sea serves as one of the biggest factors that sets the game apart from its Zelda counterparts. Whereas most games in the Zelda franchise feature players travelling throughout the kingdom of Hyrule, the story of The Wind Waker takes place a century after Ocarina of Time, featuring a flooded Hyrule. Players are now tasked with navigating the Great Sea, riding atop the talking King of Red Lions boat, visiting the various islands and helping their inhabitants along the way. Now, however, the Great Sea is being drained in a new Wind Waker mod.
The project, referred to as Wind Waker: Unflooded, re-imagines the world of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker without the sprawling ocean of the Great Sea. The massive undertaking looks to re-create the world lost beneath The Wind Waker's Great Sea, taking inspiration from fan maps of The Wind Waker's version of Hyrule. The base game of The Wind Waker only briefly features the underwater version of Hyrule, visiting Hyrule Castle and Ganon's Tower. The project's team also confirms the 3D modeling to be roughly 45% finished.
Wind Waker: Unflooded's new take on the world of The Wind Waker comes as the game served as one of the franchise's most divisive entries on launch. Many fans were critical of the game for its cel-shaded cartoony style, serving as a stark contrast from the more realistic artstyles of Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. The Great Sea was also a point of conflict for some fans, with many feeling the game's world contained too much unfilled open space.
The Zelda franchise has a long history of creative mods with fans expressing their love for the series through fantastic creations. The series has often seen mods looking to change core gameplay mechanics, including putting Tears of the Kingdom into a first-person perspective and adding multiplayer to Breath of the Wild. Fans have even brought over elements from other franchises, like adding Pokemon's Miraidon to Breath of the Wild. Wind Waker: Unflooded serves as another tribute to one of gaming's most beloved franchises.

Flintlock: The Siege Of Dawn is one of those third person action adventure games I've been quietly looking forward to ever since I first read about it in Edge in May 2022, even though we've seen and heard relatively little about it since. Thankfully, the Flintlock train does seem to be kicking into a gear a bit more now that it's steaming toward its Summer 2024 release window, as yesterday developers A44 Games released a new gameplay teaser trailer for it, ahead of a wider reveal planned for next month. The trailer shows more of its melee and magical combat, though personally, I'm just glad to see that heroine Nor hasn't been neglecting her leg days, as we get to see some meaty and powerful kicks in there, too. Love a big kick, me.
Team Ninja is known for its action-packed titles filled with intense gameplay and lots of enemies to fight.

Today, a special video highlighted their take on Japan and the beauty that lies within it.
Fans of collectible card games (CCG) can look forward to Cards of Eternity, a newly announced CCG based on The Wheel of Time fantasy franchise. The developer is Aether Games, which made the eponymous trading card game (TCG) Aether, which features blockchain and NFTs support and is therefore only available via the Epic Games Store (Steam does not allow blockchain or NFTs).
Kingmakers has too much going on to easily summarise, but I'll try. Really, though, you should just click below and watch the trailer, which will surprise and delight you with its twists and scope in a way my words will not.
