    Yeah the Nintendo Direct thread is great, but this is just for the Wind Waker HD game.

    For those of you who haven't played it, now you have no reason not to. Easily one of the best Zelda games in the franchise, awesome music, awesome visuals comes to life in HD.

    .-. Why do people put so much emphasis on resolution? A lot of people will be playing it on a Gamepad and it'll look just as good, in its 480p glory.

    Between insane and insecure


    That is all I can say to that.

    I seriously love that game! Possibly one of my favorites yet!

    It's a complete remake, updated models, textures, lighting, everything.
    Yeah I agree people shouldn't use the term HD for this, it's misleading.

    Anyone got more screens?

    It was the only screen shown. How is it misleading? It'll be HD. I'm not going to not use HD just because some people will play it on the GamePad.

    I know that. I just hate how that word/acronym is thrown around so much. HD =/= good graphics

    It was NOT the only screen shown. There are two others. Also, take a good look at that screen. Depth of Field, Real time Lights and a new shader. This game will look more like a CGI movie than a cartoon. Day 1 buy for me!

    Wind Waker has been HD for a couple of years if you own a half decent PC....

    I still dont get the excitement either way. Its a re release of a game thats already been out. Why do people keep wanting to play the same games over and over again just because the next "remake" has shinier graphics.

    It has new features and gameplay refinements alongside the new graphics. and if you played wind waker with a GBA as second screen you had more fun. now figure where the new second screen goes...

    The question is... will it have Motion Controls?
    I don't think so, but I really hope the next Zelda game they just announced does

    Wind Waker HD.. *pukes*

    I'll play it through 480p on Wii. Or even i'd grab my old N64 majora's mask cart and replay it on the original, low res N64. It's much better than buying a new gaming console to replay your old games, in 2013. (because I AM grateful what they did on wii because of N64/SNES/NES/etc emulation years ago on the Wii platform)

    Well, the did say getting rid of the single player idea, so the next one could be both.

    If so, I hope it isn't just Rayman and Mario Galaxy way of 2 player.

    Wow! This looks great! Wind Waker was my favorite game in the Zelda series. Seeing it in HD, is awesome!
