The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

  • Released on Sep 20, 2013
  • By Nintendo for Wii U

[edit] Background

Link's sister is kidnapped and it is up to him to bring her back home. Although that isn't the only thing that he must do. A new evil has arisen and if it isn't stopped, every land and sea will be destroyed. Take control of Link and sail the seas to rescue his sister and stop evil in this HD remake of the cel-shaded classic first released for the Nintendo GameCube!

[edit] Gameplay

The series' classic mix of sword-swinging action, perplexing puzzles and stirring story lines remains intact while the new cel-shaded graphics enable the characters of Link's world to be the most lively and expressive personalities gamers have ever seen. Emotions hit a fever pitch when Link witnesses his sister being snatched up by a giant bird. Embarking on an epic voyage to locate his sister, Link unravels a mystery that deftly blends unique, stylized graphics and effects with the much-heralded mechanics of the gaming milestone, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

[edit] Features

  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD features 1080p visuals that will immerse players in the game like never before.
  • With the Wii U GamePad controller, it’s easy to manage your inventory and view maps.
  • Players will enjoy cruising the open sea with a new sail that gives them more speed, bringing them to their next destination and action-packed adventure that much faster.
  • Once players receive the “Tingle Bottle” item, they can connect with others by posting comments to Miiverse. Through this new feature, comments or screen shots posted on Miiverse will wash up in various locations, such as the shores, of other players’ games. It’s like finding a message in a bottle.
  • Players can also take and store a greater number of pictures as well as higher-quality photos with an improved Pictograph and then post them on Miiverse.
  • If the television is already in use, this game can been played off-TV on the Wii U GamePad.

Nintendo betting big on Mario and Donkey Kong during Year of Luigi
