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?
