The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD sets sail Oct. 4
In a press release for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses tour released by Nintendo of America, they have announced the release date for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD coming to the WII U.
Not too long ago, Nintendo also released news of additional features coming to the high definition remake. The most notable feature is "Hero Mode," which doubles the damage enemies deal and disables heart drops from pots and other environment drops. The only way to regain health is to drink potions and encounter fairies.
A rumor of a Wind Waker HD themed Wii U has also spawned with this news, and you can find more details here. The European release for the game will also launch on Oct. 4.
Strongly considering picking up a Wii U for this,
man people are really getting booty bothered over this. its great
This is not so much an HD remake at it is Nintendo trying to figure out how to make an HD game which from the trailers doesn't seem to be working out to well. Also, whoever had the brilliant idea to give a cell shaded game an HD remake needs to be drug outside and thrown into the cucco coop.
^This guy knows what he is talking about.
I'm just giving Microsoft the possibility.
It looks the same it just has more bloom and runs at 1080p at 60fps.
The main reason I think Wind Waker HD exists is because the Wii U isn't backwards with Gamecube games. Not everyone has Gamecubes and Wind Waker is one of the best games for that system.
Really just the PS4, it will take nothing short of a miracle for the Xbox One to be even remotely successful
Sorry to say this, but I think your in for a long wait. F-zero is one of Nintendo's less successful IPs so it will be a while before they decide it should make a comeback.

Also, how is the Wind Waker in that video HD? It looks exactly like the original
Zelda again......still waiting for an F-Zero revival.
Nintendo fanboys will go out of their way to defend Nintendo in any way they can, even if it means that they will contradict themselves hard. And to be completely honest, the HD remake looks absolutely horrible. All color is washed out, there is this weird "realistic" filter that is used in a lot of games these days and lastly, it no longer even looks like its cell-shaded.
In all honesty, if people want HD wind waker, < deleted link >

you can buy it off the E shop 9/20/13 go to the e shop and its the newest news. did not see the past post on this lol
I'm still in the dark about that why people would care. For years I've been hearing people talk about that how Nintendo was genius with the artstyle making it timeless and hence not needing a remake to hold up and now this thing is supposed to be Nintendo's big system seller.
'Hoy, small fry!
Will also launch, that is correct.
Not to mention the fact that the new Pokemon and Sonic games are coming up soon. It looks like Nintendo may be sitting pretty in the future. The games just have to keep coming at a steady pace of at least one a month.
I've said it before and I've said it again; Zelda and other Nintendo IP's move units. That is always Nintendo's trump card.
