The lights are on
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD has quite a few changes from the original GameCube release, one of which is Hero mode, which is basically Nintendo's way of saying hard mode.
In Hero mode, enemies do twice the damage, and recovery hearts do not appear in the wild from chopped grass, enemies, or pots. It's pretty straightforward what Hero mode is, but in case you are still confused, Nintendo has created a trailer that offers three different examples of enemies doing twice the damage, and the lack of recovery hearts. Nintendo does love to over-explain. On the plus-side, we get to see some new Wind Waker HD footage.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is coming to Wii U on October 4. Nintendo is offering a special Wii U Wind Waker bundle on that date as well.

Prepare to die...
Oh, you're playing dark souls?
Nope, Wind Waker HD.
I want it now!!!
I found the Mirror Quest from Ocarina of Time to be just as easy as the regular quest after getting it in my head that the maps were mirrored. This might not be much of a challenge either, but then again, I never got to finish Wind Waker on the Gamecube, my dad took over the game after getting addicted to it and before I knew it, Twilight Princess came out.
Where do I find the time to play all these games. Someone make me a Doc Oct suit.
Game is beautiful
Would have been better if they implemented this on Twilight Princess, since the easy a dirt combat was the only thing that held that game back for me.
Wind Waker has such a good soundtrack. Fits the game perfectly.
im getting this
I'm glad they are implementing Hero mode on this Zelda too!
I remember playing this when I was younger but I was never any good at it, I kept getting stuck at the part where you had to get a bird's feather or something from the top of a mountain. If only I had a WiiU...
