Wind Waker Is Coming To Wii U!

If you needed a reason to buy the Wii U...then this is it. Wind Waker, the classic cell-shaded Zelda game for the Gamecube is getting a HD remake!

Fans will see this beloved title get a complete overhaul, including new HD graphics, up-scaled for today's televisions, alongside new controls to integrate the Wii U's controller. In a Nintendo Direct broadcast today, it's been announced that the game is due to be expected sometime in Autumn 2013.

But that's not all. As well as the exciting announcement of Wind Waker Wii U, there is another Zelda title in the works for Nintendo's latest console. Producer Eiji Aonuma said their mission is to "rethink the conventions of Zelda", but no further details about the game, and what changes are expected, were announced. A big tease, but quite a welcome one. A new Zelda game is just what the Wii U is needing. 

Below are nine screenshots from the remake of Wind Waker. A beautiful game on the Gamecube, it appears that Nintendo have managed to improve on this even more. But will it beat the gameplay experience we originally had on the Gamecube? Only time will tell.


  1. Iwata also said something vague about Mii integration

    So will the hero of the game be turned into me?

  2. This looks amazing. I have the original Wind Waker for the Gamecube, but never got that far in it. Sadly, my Gamecube is at my mother-in-law's place as I moved to the opposite side of the country. Being that she is obsessive with video games, I let her use it. However, to my dismay she is more into Angry Birds than than Zelda. Go figure. Anyway, the Wii U version looks amazing!
