The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is a remake of The Wind Waker for Wii U. It was announced during a Nintendo Direct presentation on January 23rd, 2013, where Eiji Aonuma announced the game, saying that it will have updated HD graphics.[3] The game uses an HD update of the original game's graphics style, combining cel-shading with advanced effects and 1080p resolution. The title was confirmed to be The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD at E3 2013.[2]

Development

At E3 in 2011, Nintendo presented a Zelda HD demo to promote the Wii U's capabilities. This demo used the more realistic graphics from Twilight Princess, and was part of a series of experiments with updating previous games' graphics for the new HD console. As a result of these experiments, The Wind Waker stood out to the developers as a brand-new experience, and they decided to make it into a game.[3]

The Wind Waker HD is planned for release in October of 2013 as a treat for fans as they wait for Zelda Wii U, which is under development.[3]

There have been some changes made to the gameplay, such as the addition of a "fast" button while sailing,[2] which will allow for faster sailing. Additionally, the Tingle Tuner has been replaced by the Tingle Bottle, which allows users to post messages on Miiverse, directly from the game.
