The Wind Waker is a Zelda game full of creativity and imagination; a game which Wii U can really show its impressive power on. The Wind Waker HD is coming out in Fall and avid fans are already looking at ways Nintendo can make this highly anticipated remake memorable. Newly released Legend of Zelda almanac, Hyrule Historia, has provided clues as to how The Wind Waker HD could be even more special than its original counterpart by revealing sketches of two creative islands which were left out of the GameCube classic. One is designed as an actual Nintendo GameCube console while the other features an island of magma and smoke, seemingly a volcano.

As you can see above, the two discarded islands originally planned for The Wind Waker were GameCube Island and Stovepipe Island which look very creative. Some people think that Dee Ess Island from Phantom Hourglass was originally GC Island for The Wind Waker because of its DS-themed design. Stovepipe Island looks amazing as it seems there are buildings on one side with a hot spring lake above and a magma valley running down the other side.

The hot debate is whether Nintendo should add extra content into their HD remake of The Wind Waker for Wii U. It wouldn’t hurt to include extra dungeons and islands originally left out, especially the two islands mentioned in the sketches of Hyrule Historia. It’s great that this magnificent Zelda book has showcased some incredible sketches from Zelda titles which haven’t made it past the design stage as it would be nice for Nintendo to give fans a fully-packed Wind Waker HD remake.

Do you like the concept of these two islands left out of The Wind Waker? Should Nintendo add left out designs of different gameplay elements for its HD remake? Do you have any ideas on how Nintendo could make The Wind Waker HD an essential purchase?
