Here’s an odd little bit of news that shows just how passionate developers can be about Nintendo. Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle’s Creative Director, Davide Soliani, once mocked up a working Game Boy Advance version of the Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker alongside artist Fabio Pagetti. Check out the image and its accompanying tweet:
Long time ago, i guess it was the 2003, me and Fabio Pagetti (the artist who made the pixel art below) almost convinced our managing director to let us produce a demo for a GBA version of Wind Waker. No luck that time, but it was running nicely. We were dreamers ?? pic.twitter.com/1LDseagMOp

From the sounds of things it never even got pitched, but it presents a very interesting alternate version of the game. At least Davide finally got to work with Nintendo years later with the surprisingly fantastic Mario + Rabbids!
