With the announcement of Wind Waker in HD. Do you think this means Nintendo is planning on only bringing over specific Gamecube titles in a HD format or if this is a special case and eventually the rest will appear on the Virtual Console?
It is clear they are doing a HD Wind Waker now to put a zelda title on the WiiU while they are making the next one (and I believe Eiji Aonuma pointed out how they are doing Wind Waker specifically because of how the lighting system in HD gives a very different look), but do you think this telling of Nintendo's plan overall (especially since they weren't mentioned in the announcement of Virtual Console returning to the WiiU)? They could be planning to do HD versions of others as well since the players who might be interested in GC titles likely at least own a backwards compatible Wii already (and it may seem like not that much more of an effort to put in if they also have to impliment off-TV-play on the Virtual Console ones anyway).
Do you think this is a one off or if they are planning on more? Or do you expect a mix of both, with either: some specific titles getting a HD version while most will be straight port; or, the virtual console system having a built-in up-rez overlay like the Dolphin software on Wii titles (although I think it is unlikely with them not implimenting that on the Wii backwards compatability)?
And what games do you hope will be brought over? I'm hoping for:
- At least one of the Pokémon titles; Colosseum or XD:Gale of Darkness - the first I have played, while I haven't played the second
- The Metroid Prime series - Although that includes a Wii game, I think it would be great if they released this in HD and then made the next Metroid game a side-scroller.
- The original Super Monkey Ball - even though it wasn't Nintendo's
