Outset Island in Zelda Breath of the Wild, not The Wind Waker

Okay, guys, this one is just a fan theory. And you may not even be convinced of it when all’s said and done, but it’s still a fun one to ponder! GameXplain has put forward a theory that Outset Island from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has actually been a part of the world in Breath of the Wild all along! Check out the video.

The houses are placed in roughly similar locations. There are similarities between the structures themselves. There is a tall ladder to climb with a somewhat similar view of the area. If you squint and look sideways, it’s all very Outset Island, except in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

I myself don’t see this as an open-and-shut case. It could be a big coincidence, or another case of one thing simply vaguely influencing the look of another thing. Still, like I said, it’s pretty fun to think about. There are so many different secrets that have been uncovered in Breath of the Wild over time, like the mystery of the leviathan bones. I bet (even hope!) that there are things we still haven’t found.

What do you think of Outset Island from The Wind Waker maybe being in Breath of the Wild? Do you buy it? Tell us below!
