As the October release date for Wii U remake The Wind Waker HD draws nearer, many Zelda fans alike have been scouring the internet in the hopes of finding any new scraps of information which could further explain some of the new features that were announced to be present in the game. Luckily, digging for information wasn’t too difficult this time around, as an interesting new screenshot can be found on the official Nintendo website for The Wind Waker HD. This particular photo details the use of the new Tingle Bottle, replacement to the Tingle Tuner in The Wind Waker on GameCube.
For the screenshot, hit the jump!
Without further ado, here is the official screenshot present on Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD website:
As one can see, the layout for the Tingle Bottle within The Wind Waker HD is much like Miiverse; a person can post questions, drawings, and thoughts, while playing this Zelda game, in order to get help and a feeling of cooperation between fellow game players around the world. Is this the future of multiplayer in The Legend of Zelda series? Unfortunately, we don’t know yet, but the Tingle Bottle is a fascinating experiment in this “universal multiplayer” that Nintendo seems to be driving at with many of the features present within its Wii U game console.
I am excited to use the Tingle Bottle myself, given the fact that I have never utilized the Tingle Tuner feature in The Wind Waker for Nintendo GameCube. I’ll certainly be looking forward to all of the astounding pieces of art that are sure to be present on this “Zelda Miiverse” of sorts when it releases.
