So beautiful

Early Video!

Also, it seems like Nintendo are just throwing bloom and a bunch of overly bright lights into all their games because ~HD~

It's not COMPLETELY like the old Wind Waker. There's a fast sail now. :D Who knows what else they changed in the remake.

Anyway, this being my second favourite Zelda (behind Link's Awakening), warts and all, I'm seriously thinking about getting a Wii U now. The new Xeno game, Bayonetta 2 and Mario 3D World are also good reasons.

More Ds you say?
"The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD"

Hmm, well just one more D really

You have great taste in Zelda games.

I'll be damned if I sit here and let you talk shit about Tetra!

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not. :P Most people would agree that Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time are the most popular ones.

Shew... it's slowly becoming more difficult to not buy a Wii U... Between this, the new Smash Bros, and the new 3D World... If a Wii U Fatal Frame gets announced I might just soil myself.

Wind Waker is my favourite Zelda, and in my top five games of all time. I'm hoping for a price drop on Wii U, but if they sell a Zelda bundle I'm in.

I thought I was the only one realizing that Link's Awakening was the best of the Zelda games.

The screenshots that first came out had ridiculous levels of bloom like holy shit kind of levels. It looks like they toned it down a good bit in this trailer so that's better.

No, no sarcasm. Those are my favourites, and probably Majora as #3.

Well, now you're not alone anymore!

Wind Waker is my my top 3D Zelda game. Link to the Past is the best 2d game.

It might be a bit toned down but it's still way too much for my tastes. I dunno, I really enjoyed the flat, clean look of the original version. I kinda just want that at 1080p with AA and nicer textures.

Ah, memories.

That music.....

Posted by Senate4242

Looks fantastic, can't wait! My favorite Gamecube game and my third favorite Zelda behind Ocarina of Time and A Link to the Past.

Edited by SpicyRichter

2Ds is enough Ds for me

Wait...

Anyway, it seems a little early to be remaking this, but it does look really good imo

What about that H?

And way more p's. 600, actually.

Ok, I'm getting a WiiU.

Edited by KDR_11k

Wind Waker was not very popular because of the whole "lol Celda" thing where people were demanding "mature" games. Now look where that got us.

Edited by Ohvee

Wrong.

Wind Waker was a fantastic looking game. Looks like they didn't change the art for this, which is a good thing. I wonder if they'll be adding any new content (or previously cut content)?

Posted by sanzee

Rorie, the title of this one almost made me do a spit take and cover my keyboard with mountain dew. I don't know why. It's not even that funny.

Okay, It's pretty funny.

Edited by fishmicmuffin

It's a testament to the original's graphics that this doesn't look THAT much better. It was and still is a beautiful game.

Posted by spexeh

This looks absolutely fantastic. I missed the Gamecube version and have always regretted it, although not enough to buy a Gamecube and a copy. I'm also happy Nintendo rebuilt the game from the ground up, despite its looking good with even a simple resolution increase on Dolphin. Woohoo!

Edited by BigStupidFace

I loved Wind Waker and it's definitely one of my favourite games of all time but... that's some Oblivion level bloom right there!

Posted by jaycrockett

I only buy consoles because of a specific game I need to play. (That's right NEED). I bought a gamecube (my first console in 10 years) because of Wind Waker.

So, now, seeing this...I guess I'm buying a WiiU?

Edited by MormonWarrior

I love Wind Waker so much. I hope they add a dungeon or two and make the sailing faster later on in the game.

Also, this is amazing:

Still like the art style of Wind Waker, but everything else I remember is blah.

It had one of the most satisfying endings of any Zelda game. And it was the first to really nail the 3D battle system. I found the N64 controls to be kinda clunky, but they were a good first attempt.

And it had some of the best sound design. The musical stings during combat started with WW.

If I had to criticize it at all, it could have used one or two more dungeons, ditch the Triforce hunt, and add more scenes with Tetra being awesome.
