We are less than a month away from the Wind Waker HD release. New screenshots and video footage have been released, and the detail is absolutely stunning. The updated graphics should make for an improved gaming experience, making Wind Waker HD feel more like a new game rather than a repeat.
The Japanese Wind Waker HD site is up. Even if you’re like me and can’t read Japanese, you can still click around for some cool pictures and videos.
One new minor feature is the ability to skip the initial prologue. I enjoy watching it, but if you would rather go straight to playing the game, now you can. Hit the jump for the latest screenshots and videos!
After watching the video, saying the game has smoother, more polished graphics doesn’t do it justice. The graphics themselves could stand alone as beautiful artwork.
Nintendo released this Wind Waker HD trailer. At 16 seconds in length, it’s not much, but it does show a cool shot of Link wielding his sword.
Many Zelda fans were concerned that the update would either be a total waste, or ruin the game they already love. The epic boss battles and colorful environments truly separate Wind Waker HD from the original, creating a whole new game.
