The lights are on
Hyrule-heads unite! Green tights welcome. The Legend of Zelda is one of gaming's most famous franchises, and the power of the Triforce is collected here.
Nintendo has decided to bless us with a Zelda appetizer for Wii U. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker is scheduled to be released in glorious HD in Fall of 2013.
Thoughts? Hopes? Qualms?
Did anybody else notice that Windfall Island was displaying the French Flag?
I am excited for all this new Wii U news! Especially for Wind Waker HD! I hope they announce a new Wii U model with higher gigabytes(Ex:64).
This is a literal wish come true for me. When the Wii U was coming out, the first thing I said was that I'd love to see an HD rerelease of WW on it. The fact that it's a full on graphical overhaul is just amazing. I've always thought the art style would look fantastic in HD, and no need to worry about getting a GBA and cable, because you'll have a built in Tingle Tuner. It's a perfect fit, and I can't wait to get back out on the high seas in HD.
From what I can tell it's not cell shaded so it's not really the same art style. Physically it is the same I guess. But I may be wrong and who knows how long it's been in development.
I am ecstatic about this news. Looks terrific. I especially love that everything has such a highly detailed, Pixar look to it while keeping all of the spirit of the original art too. On the subject of the French Flag, I totally didn't notice that. However, I might point out that it's being triangular technically excludes it from being THE French Flag, I guess.
Sir, I am a well known French Flag Scientist and my professional opinion is that it's a French flag. But seriously, it's probably just some kind of space holder.
My apologies my good man. Indeed, it's most likely a fun reference for observant fans like you. I hope this means that the HD remake might yield a lot of cool surprise references. I'll be looking in every dungeon and island for a Metroid, Mario, or Pokemon clue.
Well its not Majoras Mask, but Ill take an HD remake of my second favorite zelda title as a nice consolation.
Wondering what enhancements they'll be making. Will they be keeping the Tingle Tuner? Will they streamline the wind changing element?
Ah, I'm so excited for this! I wasn't planning on getting a Wii-U anytime soon, but this definitely changes my mind.
I hoped for a Majora's Mask HD remake but this is nice too. I never really played Wind Waker so yeah this is great news and I hope I get a Wii U before this gets released.
It comes at no better of a time for me, as the old Windwaker Gamecube disk in the house is having a hard time being read by the Wii. It's just perfect to have another Wind Waker to last for the next generation. I'm astounded at the gorgeous graphics too. It looks just like new!
The screenshots look gorgeous, but I'll wait to see what other gameplay features they plan to add. I usually only get remakes when I no longer have access to the original or the remake adds other special unique features. I wonder if they'll integrate the Tingle Tuner into the Wii pad and have the screens switch for the Off-TV Play.
Same here. As great as the graphics are (which are pretty darn good), some added gameplay elements or extra dungeons would be the sweetest deal Nintendo could offer. I really hope that there could be some interesting post-game content too.
