Why are they giving Wind Waker a HD remake?

#1TrueBlue91Posted 2/17/2013 4:29:07 PM
Wind Waker is the one Zelda game that doesn't feel like it was visually restricted by hardware limitations, due to the art style. Literally every other Zelda has moments where the technical limitations are extremely noticeable, but Wind Waker managed to avoid that. I don't actually understand the point of the HD remake.

I assumed it was based around fan demand/sales predictions

I guess because you can actually play Twilight Princess on your Wii U...?

...Or MAYBE they're making a new sequel for Wind Waker! (not like Phantom Hourglass, more like what WW was to MM)

I think it was either that and Majora... they picked that one. ANything else would either be way too much trouble or is fairly new (not to mention playable in the wii-u).....

Wind Waker still looks fluid and amazing, I agree with you.

Unless they add the two missing dungeons, a straight remake would be a huge let down.

Nintendo also stated that not as many people played Wind Waker as some of the other Zelda titles because of the Gamecube having less console sales when compared to other Nintendo consoles.

To make the best Zelda game even more beautiful. Seems like they're adding some extra features as well (Gamepad play, probably also some touch-screen functionality like OoT 3D, perhaps gyroscope aiming, boss battle mode, super guide and they might improve the New Game +... would love to see a Master Quest being done with remixed dungeons (but will probably just be the same as the normal game, but mirrored with double damage).

Anyhow, I don't mind buying multiple versions of an excellent game. Even if it's still mostly the same, it's simply a joy to experience once more... especially in a fresh coat with some extra features.

Actually a MasterQuest would be pretty cool.

More ReDeads! (They're so creepy in this game imo)

Totally agree. Wind Waker is still the best looking Zelda ever imo. I guess it won't cost too much to upscale and people who don't have access to it or want to play for the first time can get it.

I think they mentioned its art style and how it looks more accessible to new players as opposed to the other Zeldas.
