    How Nintendo managed to make it look so pretty?

    An indie dev has 'cracked open' the Zelda Wind Waker title for the GameCube and breaks down a lot of interesting tech details about the game.

    I think everyone would agree that Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for the GameCube still looks amazing even for today standards.

    How did Nintendo do that? Well, indie developer Sönke Christian Seidel has 'cracked open' the game and broke down a lot of interesting tech details about it.

    Take a look at a few of the pics shared (and, of course, don't forget to go to the Polycount thread below for more!):

    My love for this game just grew a tiny bit more. It's a shame Nintendo doesn't seem capable of making a game of this quality today.

    Damn, the game is 10 years old already.

    so who cares, i could have got all this via the emulator which looks better than on the actual gc itself.

    i didnt mind this game but it did get a little boring towards the end
