Donning the trademark green garb, Link sets out on a high seas adventure using a variety of new talents, techniques, weapons and tools in an effort to save his sister and ultimately fulfill his destiny as the latest incarnation of the fabled "Hero of Time". One of the most striking things about this latest Zelda game is that it is completely cel-shaded and offers uplink support via the GBA that gives Link access to a special friend named "Tingle" who helps him out in a variety of ways including giving hints on hidden objects and a whole lot more.
