It was a tech demo only to show off the power of the Gamecube and nothing more.

That was the reason people were disappointed when they saw what Wind Waker looked like.

Didn't know that ... It looks a lot like TP to me... and the battle ... just Ganondorf and Link ... in a small room ... no tricks, just the swords - seems really really cool to me!

I know, i remember getting super psyched for GC because that was on the interwebz. Sort of sad it never turned into a real game.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

If they'd released something like that instead of the toony WW it would've sold far better. They say that TP saved the series after declining sales.

Oracle of Ages/Seasons: 7.92 million
Ocarina of Time: 7.6 million
Legend of Zelda: 6.51 million
Link's Awakening: 6.05 million
Twlight Princess: 5.84 million

Zelda II: 4.38 million
Phantom Hourglass: 4.13 million
Majora's Mask: 3.36 million
Wind Waker: 3.07 million
Four Swords Adventures: 225,000

@StarFox

I don't believe the lower sales of Wind Waker compared to TP had anything to do with the games themselves. The latter was a launch title for an enormously successful platform with a ton of hype. I actually believe WW would have sold much more than TP if it were first released on the Wii as a motion-enabled launch title.

Twitter is a good place to throw your nonsense.

Really? Oracle of Ages/Seasons is the best-selling Zelda title? I don't know anyone who played Oracle of Ages/Seasons.

It certainly saved the series from innovation.

You speak as if everyone was disappointed. I loved the look and feel of the Wind Waker. It is a masterpiece. Famitsu gave it 40/40.

Wind Wakers art direction is up there with the very best games of all time.

I may be wrong, but didn't this become Twilight Princess? I seem to remember hearing somewhere that TP was ~9 years in development.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

What's wrong with the new ones sure it's easier then before but even i admit i prefer Toon Link over Link. Besides it's not about the graphics it's about gameplay. You just have issue.

@grenworthshero: if you combine the sales of both, it's a total of almost 8 million.

@Swerd, probably because the best part of FSA was the multiplayer, and you have to shell out enormous craploads of cash in order to enable 4-players, because Ninty wanted to make money and thus chose to have each successive player hook up a GBA instead of a GC pad. and the single player game (while good, yes) was almost a straight rip-off of LttP. the multiplayer was the focus of that game with the single player a side note, and nobody used the multiplayer. it was also a big departure from the open, adventure filled world everybody loved about zelda games, what with the level system, and all. again, not a bad game, but it's not all that.
