If you take the series’ confusing timeline into account — Wind Waker’s flooded Hyrule eventually becomes Breath of the Wild’s wide-open world — it’s entirely possible that Outset Island eventually became Lurelin Village as the waters receded and the topography shifted.
It turns out sleepy Lurelin Village, which lies in the southeast of Breath of the Wild’s Hyrule, is a whole lot like Wind Waker’s super chill starting area, Outset Island.
But Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa gave us hope last week by saying the company is "thinking about" extending its Switch Online subscription service to include N64 and GameCube games — so Wind Waker might come to the hybrid console in future.
It might have two years since The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild basically ruined all other video games through its sheer magnificence, but Hyrule has yet to reveal all its secrets.
