The reveal of a high-def remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker for Wii U was one of the most exciting announcements of the January 23rd Nintendo Direct. The Wind Waker remains one of the most visually impressive GameCube games, and it looks like it’s going to be absolutely stunning in 1080p. We saw that a remake could breathe new life into a Zelda game with Ocarina of Time 3D, so the potential for a Wind Waker redux is very high.
Nintendo stated that the new HD remake is going to have Off-TV gameplay, Miiverse support, and some of the gameplay will be “tuned.” This is very interesting indeed. What exactly could this gameplay tuning entail? People have been reeling and speculating on what the wizards at Nintendo have planned. Nothing concrete has been revealed so far, but I have a few ideas for some things that would really improve The Wind Waker experience. So now, here are five things we’d like to see in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD remake for Wii U! If Nintendo has half a brain, all of these items will be included, because they are awesome.
