Play Zelda in First Person, and Take Selfies in Wind Waker HD

Also a harder Hero Mode right off the bat.

According to details unveiled at this year’s Gamescom in Germany, The HD remake of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker will contain some rather off-the-wall features. For instance, players will be able to play through the game in first-person camera mode (although why you’d want to is a mystery), the slightly-harder Hero Mode from Skyward Sword is available from the start and the Picto Box has received some sort of upgrade (presumably to do with Miiverse).

However, one of the most bizarre additions is the ability of Link to “take funny self-photographs” and “Switch between happy, sad, and surprised emotions”. I suspect this doesn’t mean we’ll see the elfin wonder taking jauntily-angled black and white shots of himself looking into the middle distance and pouting on his Tumblr, but when The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Hipster HD launches in October we’ll be able to tell.

In addition, there are several more practical functions which have been added. The Swift Sail, briefly shown in the trailer some weeks ago, can be purchased after completing the first dungeon, and will allow full-speed sail with constantly changing wind direction and will massively speed up ocean travel which some players found dull. Also combating the complaints of some prior players, five of the eight Triforce pieces can now be found directly without having to uncover maps and consult Tingle. This will likely delight those who disliked the Triforce hunt, but those of us who found it a good way to make the player explore the weird and wonderful world of the Great Sea may be disappointed.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD releases this October.
