5. Add additional goodies and cut content

This is the top enhancement that should be in The Wind Waker remake. If you didn’t know, the development of the original GameCube game started to get rushed towards the end, forcing the developers to cut out a good bit of content. There ended up being quite a bit of unused real estate that was on the finished disc. Well, it’s ten years later, so why not bring it back?

At least two full dungeons were cut from the game’s original release, so this would be a perfect opportunity to include them. The Wind Waker did have a glaring shortage of dungeons, too, so this would create a much better experience. Greatfish Isle was intended to be fully explorable with a dungeon to retrieve Nayru’s Pearl, and Hyrule Castle was supposed to be more open and allow for exploration. Turning The Wind Waker HD into a “Director’s Cut” with this missing content would not be a bad idea at all.

But while we’re at it, why not add even more new stuff? How about fleshing out the Ghost Ship quest even more? Or what if there was more to do on those seemingly useless islands? The Great Sea is a huge place with plenty of room to add fun stuff for us to discover. It could encourage even seasoned players who have traversed the sea dozens of times to get out and explore again. If Nintendo doesn’t add at least some cut or new content like this stuff, I’ll be sorely disappointed.

So those are five things we are clamoring to see appear in the new Wii U remake of The Wind Waker. What do you think? Would you be happy if any of the features appeared in the game this fall? Are you ready to jump back into the King of Red Lions and come sail away, come sail away? Let us know in the comments below!

    The cut content would be fantastic and I’d love to see it included. I imagine they still have all the art assests, etc. hanging around and it wouldn’t be too much of a problem to remake them.

    I recon if they shrank the heads of main characters so they don’t look like lolipops they would increase the apeal of the game to a wider audience, thats my only gripe with the art design as it seems soley focused on children. Of coarse i don’t expect that to happen.

    I’ve always thought the art design was fitting for the game. Yes the characters do look strange with bit heads and floating eyebrows, but overall this is a great game. If Nintendo can include the extra content (new dungeons, mini-games, useful islands, side quests, new items) then a great game would become much better. My Gamecube is still connected to the TV with Wind Waker in it but this is a 1st day purchase for me. Zelda fanboy…probably, but who cares.
