October release for The Wind Waker on Wii U

by June 11th, 2013

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be released this October on the Wii U, with Nintendo specifying some new additions.

The game features the option to speed up your boat, with the Nintendo Direct E3 broadcast showing the boat’s sail turning orange whilst increasing speed. Definitely a nice addition if you found this part of the game a slog.

Reworking the integration of the Gamecube and Gameboy Advance using the Tingle Tuner, Nintendo have replaced this with the Tingle Bottle, allowing you to create a message and send it to the sea where it will appear as a comment on Miiverse and in someone else’s game world on a beach. Photo attachments are also possible using the in game camera as well. Neato.

Finally comes the promise of 1080p graphics, new shader effects and “refined” textures to what was already a great looking game. I just hope it plays as well as I remember it back in 2003, and I hope to hear about more extras being added. The cut dungeons perhaps? Please?

Hi, my name's Jonathan and it's a pleasure to make your acquaintance! I've been gaming for the last 18-19 years now, having discovered the likes of Adi Junior, Monkey Island and Lemmings on the Amiga. Though it wasn't until a chance encounter with a friend's copy of Donkey Kong Country on the SNES at the tender age of 6 that truly ignited my passion for gaming. Fast forward 17 years and here I am with my Playstation 3, a mid-range gaming PC and a Nintendo Wii and DS, a Psychology graduate of the University of Leeds at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Where am I going right now? Hard to say really. Feel free to hit me up on the Playstation Network or through my information below if you want to talk about anything. If adding me on PSN I'd appreciate a message explaining who you are or else I'm liable to ignore you.
