    What were you expecting? 1080p? It's a Wii. It can only do PAL, NTSC and 480p. Of course it's going to look pixelated.

    Using component cables will marginally improve the picture quality. Other than that, there's not much else you can do.

    Also, there are some cheap TV internal decos which will make look image quality worse than others

    Are you seeing little spots or something? I wonder if your GPU is going.

    480p certainly doesn't look pixelated though...

    Either your GPU is going or you have it set at a different video setting.

    OK the game is way too dark and these white boxes look pretty bad, maybe your GPU is damaged. Really, only for this game? Is it from your region?

    Did you try a different copy of the game its the first thing you should have done if this is the only game it happens to.

    Apart from those white dots, which could be reflections, I dont see anything wrong with it.

    Ok well, all I have to go by is a still-image, so based solely on the picture it could just as well be reflections. But if you say they move etc then yea, somethings not right then.

    It's the gpu.
    Try cleaning the air venst on your Wii.
    Remove the standby setting in the Wii option if you have anabled that.

    My friend has this same issue with his Wii, but it's everywhere instead of just Zelda. It's definitetly a faulty GPU. Depending on how bad it's damaged or faulty, the amount of pixelation or where it occurs varies. You might have to send it in for repair.
