As a result, the speedrunning community will stop at nothing to find a way to glitch through a barrier, especially one that if overcome would allow you to skip half of a game.
Nintendo once had plans for a full console sequel to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker - and it would have been set more firmly on dry land.
This follow-up would have allowed Link to ride a horse - a feature missing in the GameCube's seafaring entry.

Earlier this week a couple of hardcore Zelda fans put up a browser-based remake of the original The Legend of Zelda made with voxels to commemorate the series' 30th anniversary. Now that fan tribute has been removed due to Nintendo issuing a copyright strike.
