With the release of The Wind Waker Wii U only a few short months away, many are theorizing how they believe the game will ultimately turn out. One major aspect not yet known about the game is the control scheme. Will the GamePad be used as the Tingle Tuner? Perhaps playing using the Wii remote and nun chuck, (a la Twilight Princess) will be possible. How will the GamePad’s gyroscope be integrated into the game (if at all)?
Using GameCube game play and their own GamePad menu interface, Cubed3 has created a working mock-up of The Wind Waker running on a Wii U console. Cubed3’s video discusses the aforementioned possibilities and many others, including controlling Link similar to the way the DS Zelda titles operate.

With the possibility of including several different control schemes, The Wind Waker Wii U has the potential to be a more diverse title than its GameCube predecessor. Stay with Zelda Universe for any new details regarding the title!
