A big barrier — literally — has been broken for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD speedrunners, meaning faster times are almost definitely on the way.
As explained by Console Deals, The Wind Waker trick involves using specific inputs to bust through the barrier around Hyrule Castle — and Ganon himself. In fact, this exploit has already led to 30 minutes being shaved off the record time for completing the game.
Now Polygon points out that this Wind Waker trick only works for the Wii U version of the game so far. But there reportedly is a hypothesis among the speedrunning community that the trick might be possible on the GameCube edition as well.
