The lights are on
Grand Theft Auto V isn't the only big release of the week. Today welcomes Rovio's Angry Birds Star Wars II on mobile platforms, and Nintendo's HD re-release of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker on Wii U. This gorgeous version is only available for download at the moment, but is slated to hit retail shelves on October 4.
Dan Ryckert joined me for a comprehensive look at Wind Waker's first dungeon. We marvel at the visuals, and talk about how great Link's GameCube debut was – all while breaking the spacetime continuum (you'll see why in this Saturday's Replay). Dan thought he could complete this dungeon in no time flat, but his inability to kill centipedes quickly resulted in an extra-long episode. All apologies for not showing off the sailing segments.
Be sure sure to heah here to read our review of Wind Waker's HD return.

Wooo so excited for this Test Chamber :3 I love 'em all but I feel like this one is going to be especially good :3
I would play this game if it was on the PSN. Sadly its not interesting enough for me to get a WII U for just this.
Here's what happens to the fairies:
This game is amazing! This version does a lot of little tweaks that make the whole experience better and every Wii U owner should get it!
This looks awesome!
YES! This is what I've been waiting for! Bring forth awesomeness!
Cool Test Chamber dudes! Thanks.
Wind Waker was my first exposure to Zelda when I played it for 10 minutes in a Jared's jewelry store while my mom was getting her ring cleaned. I remember nothing about it except for the fact that I loved it. I plan on buying this soon and I can't wait to play it.
Wind Waker was the second Zelda game I eve played back on my Gamecube. Hearing about the HD remake and knowing the style of visuals, I thought this game seemed pointless. Seeing the increase in visuals and hearing about all the gameplay tweaks however, has changed my mind. I would probably buy a Wii U for this.
This is the game that's finally convinced me to get a WiiU. Just gotta work my way through the other Zeldas first though...
This game looks great. Can't wait to pick this up, asap.
I loves these games. This looks really really good in HD. Awesome test chamber guys!!
Dan, the patient gamer...
Did that used to be someones tag in the magazine? Dan should take that over.
Also, Reiner, Majora's Mask was not adult link. That game would look absolutely stunning, though. Won't happen. We'll probably get a 3DS remake, much like OoT.
Absolutely adored this Test Chamber. I think it's about time I purchased a Wii U.
I've never played a Zelda game (to my shame) and watching this makes me regret that fact even more, they look like a lot of fun and these cel shading graphics look gorgeous too.
