Zelda Fans Reveal Why They Want The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

At the MCM London Comic-Con 2013, Zelda fans revealed to Nintendo why they are looking forward to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. The game is a remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, which was originally released in 2002 for the Nintendo GameCube. Some Zelda fans are most excited for the remake’s enhanced visuals and controls; others say they can’t wait to revisit the flooded Hyrule to explore it and interact with its islands’ inhabitants.

It was rumored last month that a Wii U bundled with the remake will launch this year. It was recently revealed that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Collector’s Edition: Prima Official Game Guide is available for pre-order from Amazon. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be released for Wii U in Europe and North America this October.

    1. WW’s horrible compared to other Zelda games. It’s 90% water & 10% land. You’d think with all that water you’d at least be able to dive, SMH. Most of my time was consumed on just sailing alone–especially when looking for those blasted Triforce pieces.

    2. Maybe I’d consider buying the remake if the boat included a radio this time, haha, JK. This simplistic title offered no challenge at all, except trying to keep my interest. And the finale showdown was just a disgrace.

    3. On the plus side, WW had a unique artistic sense of style and was a product of much laughter for me. When I first saw what Ganondorf was reduced to, I laughed hard & non-stop for days. I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as much…
      Props!

  2. It’s like Nintendo is trying to make the Wii U fail, fans ask for MM remake that would sell a motherfucking lot, but they take the last game that should’ve been remaked and remake it.

    1. First of all, the game has been remade, not “remaked.” Secondly, it’s far more likely for a MM remake to appear on 3DS than on the Wii U, since they’ve already done OoT.

      5. “Remaked” isn’t a work; ‘remade’ is the past tense of ‘remake,’ hence, you should have said, “last game that should’ve been [remade].” Just for the record, I’d rather see a Wind Waker remake than a Majora’s Mask remake.

        Then why are you wasting time here? To prove why nintendo gone a quicker route to test the HD properties for the new Zelda? Major’s mask is a better choice yes, but since wind waker was also “what if” part to OoT and MM, I see no reason why they wouldn’t do so for either system. However, I do see why they chosen Wind Waker, its quicker for a test out for the consumers like me and you. Sure, MM would have been more kick ass but there is another reason why they choose WW and its because of the 3 day time limit. People got frustrated easily even for an advanced players. Plus the cele art style is easier to make in HD as well. People don’t think why choose a crappy version instead of an awesome version remade games. Maybe that’s why you stuck around but if you truely don’t have “time to dumbshits”, then you wouldn’t have came back just to prove a point. You sir have just been pro trolled.

      9. First of all, how about you try to be less of a cunt ?
        Second, Zelda-WW sold about 40% more than Zelda-MM did, keep.

        Keep in mind that when Zelda-WW was released, the GameCube had sold around 9.5m units.
        At the time of release for Zelda-MM, the N64 had sold around 31m units.

        You clearly don’t know what you are talking about, and know nothing about business, leave it to the people who can actually do it,

      4. I know there are some questionable decisions. I agree. But that is not going to downgrade the level of polish we are accustomed in nintendo games nor the quantity of games we are going to get from them. We aARE going to get a MM remake. Trust me. They know that fans are dying to see that game again including me. They are just waiting for the right moment. In this precise moment, it is easier to remake it for the 3ds because, as 13 years ago, MM would use the same engine and graphics with minor improvements as OoT3D. I agree that on the wii unit would be simply mindblowing (just watch the fanmade trailer) and I know the wii u needs it more, but I think it would be to time consuming and would be to taxing. And nintendo isn’t on a position that allows them to afford that. Maybe there is a nod to it in SSB4 where young link has the power to change masks and have completely different attacks, as pokemon trainers. What I’m trying to say is that there is a lot of time. The console just launched. The GameCube and the N64 for example, didn’t sell too much, and there are GEMS and CLASSICS in those platforms. Indicating that nintendo WON’T downgrade their games for the platform whether that be qualitywise or quantity wise. Just wait and see. We are going to get the gAme, but not yet.

      1. well I don’t, I find it enjoyable and peaceful from your average fighting game. I like to sail and pirate the enemies in this game, makes me feel like one without actually doing it. I have no problems here.

      2. At least you make a good point. I guess you could call it a calm before the very important part of the game. Very similar to TV shows. Yea I starting to have second opinion on sailing all day. Not yet but I might have a second opinion.

  3. I for one am disappointed about the HD remake, as great of a game that Wind Waker is… looking back at its graphical style of the game for the time was a smart move as it is a cartoony styled game that is meant to look like that, kinda eliminating the need for an HD remake. To me this just feels like a filler game before the next new Zelda adventure on WiiU. Having said that, I love the game to bits but would have much preferred a brand new Zelda game to make its debut on WiiU rather than a game I literally can right NOW but with up rez’d graphics.
