The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Cel-Shaded Zelda Looks Great On Wii U

Back in January, Nintendo announced The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD for Wii U. During today's Nintendo Direct video, we were treated to a new trailer and a batch of vibrant screenshots.

Check out the video for a closer look at sailing, chopping grass, carrying pigs, and hiding in a barrel. The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD is still scheduled to release this October. 

Visit our E3 News Headquarters for all the stories from the show.

  • Nope. That is not the Wind Waker I know and love.
  • So purdy.

  • I'm very interested in seeing what new features the gamepad will add to one of my favorite Zelda titles. Looks beautiful.

  • It's so... beautiful
  • Hopefully there is still a chance they will put in the cut dungeons

  • With Windwaker, Nintendo has a pretty good shot at setting a trend for making the best remakes ever. I still desperately want to know if they're gonna be throwing in some extra dungeons and or weapons, but these gorgeous graphics alone are enough of an excuse to play this classic again.
  • Wish it'd be for 3ds :/ I don't want to buy a WiiU
  • So gorgeous. Granted Wind Waker still looks really good even now, but seeing it in HD is going to be breathtaking.

  • They need to speed up the Wind changing by allowing you to play notes with the right stick and allowing you to use the left stick to instantly change wind directions.
  • This is the only main Zelda game I wasnt into. I reallly didn't like the sailing.

  • Still haven't play this game, how sad. No gamecube and m wii isn't backwards compatible..guess i need a wii u.
  • This looks amazing! I hope they also bring Phantom Hourglass and Sprit Tracks to the Wii U!
  • I find it pretty impressive that the best looking next gen game so far is a remake.
  • That cell shading looks phenomenal.

  • I love the Legend of Zelda so much.

  • Been aching to replay this game, mine as well go HD.

  • Gorgeous. I'm glad they didn't go with the style they had in the mockup images that were all plastic-textured with a ton of bloom.

  • What is this feeling.... I feel OLD seeing these trailers and hearing all this nostalgia. Reminds me of when people had death threats against Nintendo for Cel-shading young Link here.

  • This game is a freaking must buy! PLEASE NINTENDO! Do a bundle deal with this game!

  • Well I mean its my favorite zelda game..it would be kinda insane if I didnt pick this up I suppose..its not a system seller though.
