It's been... 83 years... since we last played The Wind Waker. Despite our repeated cries for the Wii U version, which only Wii U owners played, to be ported to the Switch, we have not yet seen the slightest glimmer that this hope will come true. Sob.

Luckily for us, the upcoming procedurally-generated game Sail Forth might just scratch that seafaring itch with its cel-shaded oceans, tiny islands, and sailing physics. Unlike Wind Waker, we might actually get to shoot at other boats. Splooooooosh!

Sail Forth was announced back in 2019, with an "early 2020" release date. Evidently, that didn't happen - we're willing to blame the pandemic if you are - and the updated release date on the website is simply "2021". The new trailer shows off some of the gameplay, including the Giant Enemy Kreb, which hopefully means we won't have too long to wait until we get to try it out for ourselves.

Does Sail Forth tickle your fancy? Let us know in the comments below.
