Irrational Games Co-Founder Names Zelda: Wind Waker HD As One Of His Best Games Of 2013

Irrational Games co-founder and creative director Ken Levine has deemed The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD as one of his best games of 2013. In a list of his top 10 titles of the year, Levine ranks the Wii U remake alongside several multiplatform games, such as LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag. Additionally, Levine says he wasn’t one of the critics who immediately disregarded the original Nintendo GameCube game for its cel-shaded art style.

“A magical game about a floutist,” wrote Levine, explaining why The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is one of his best games of the year.

“What else do I need to say that hasn’t been said, except I was never one of those haters who didn’t like the way it looked on the GameCube, and it’s even better now.”

      1. So every time we see a picture of a character we freak out and think Smash Bros? Why would anyone want Tetra in the game anyway? She is barely in Wind Waker. Toon Link is a waste as is so why add another toon character?

      1. Indeed, i used to fight in battlefield, it was a fierce fight but i beated them all with my poke cards, oh yeah. Im pokemaster and thats why my superiors said to me one day, ” you are now our official Commander, fight for light and destroy Sony and Ms, dont fail us” i said, “yes”. From that day ive been commander.

          1. Children like you couldnt have by any possibility learn that kinda language from Nintendo games. Are you hiding something? perhaps an evil corrupted devilish Sonyan machine under your bed?

              1. I dont get why you get your blood so boiled because of this. Just take it easy, thats why no one in our army likes you. Just once in a while chill,okay? I really have a feelin you secretly play Sonyan games.

  1. Its a great game, but it lacks that wow feelin since many have already experienced it, if it would have come out first time in 2013 im sure it would be the most wanted shit atm.

    1. Keep that garbage out of our sacred machine, you should feel ashamed children. But its not too late to cure you, just follows us to the promised Nintendoland.

      1. Wow.. Dude u just went full retard. I am a nintendo fan but bioshock is one of my favorite games. If nintendo published d game will it change ur opinion? I guess ur biased fanboyism should be d one to get out of here

  2. Ah excellent, oh dear superiors everything is going as planned. Nintendomination will begin, soon childrens we dont have countries, no war, no fear, no pain, just colours everywhere and one big Nintenation, where we all can dance under the bright moonlight. I love ya all, my dear followin Nintendogs and my superiors deserve a mention aswell. We will rise and built the ground thats been won. My tears are flowing through my eyes like an great ocean, but i feel the wind that keep blowing…

    1. Theres nothing wrong at all, what are you talkin you son of a —-. You should feel ashamed for youself statin lies here, but if you follow us to the promised Nintendoland you are be forgiven and i love you the way you are.

  3. TAKE THAT SONY AND MS,”Irrational Games Co-Founder Names Zelda: Wind Waker HD As One Of His Best Games Of 2013″ how does it feel to not have enough knacks for snacks?

    Good night i love ya all!

      1. I ignore you and love you the way you are. It makes me feel sad that after all these years you still care about me *sniff*.

    1. Dont mention sonyan unholy device on my rainbow Nintendo site, you hear me kiddo? You werent even born when Vita was made! Eat it.

  5. Come children over here! This is mynintendonews place with no dirty and evil machines like playstations and Xboxs! Lets playyy, i wanna plaaayyyyyy!

    1. I love you too. HUGS!!!!! Kisses!!!!!! You have been my favorite recruit on this site all the time! You shall be Nintendo Prince!

    1. Ignoring that WWHD has GamePad functions as well as online and better visuals. Its a Wii U game for 2013. Its no. 2 best seller on eshop.

      1. same polygons, same game with just upscaled HD. even frame rate drops in exact same places as in gamecube version. its same old game just in a new enveloppe lol. of course it uses gamepad cos thats the wiiu’s controller.. if you want to see a good remake look at duck tales remastered – all graphics made from scratch. not HD upscale and some little work on shaders. but its a good game regardless. i just dont think HD “remakes” should be treated as new triple A titles. That makes tomb raider definitive edition then also a 2014 game possible to get awards lol. when its just a PC high settings remake on ps4/xb1 XD

        1. LOL! Duck Tales got a couple bad reviews and Wind Waker got flawless reviews, I think it’s safe to say which game was a better remake, Not to mention sales-wise and content-wise.

          Don’t let the “HD remake” @ the end of the title fool you, Wind Waker is practically a new game.

    2. It’s better than some of the titles for the console that I have seen and this was just a direct GameCube port with 1080p visuals.

  6. Am I the only one who spotted this mistake? Floutist? Eh, sorry, Link doesn’t play the flute in this game. Thanks for the praise Kevin but are you even sure you’ve played this game? How can you get such an integral part of the game wrong?

    1. Thank god you said it because there’s no flute in the game period. Link is a conductor….hmmm now I’m suspicious he’s even played the game
