The Wind Waker HD just keeps getting better. Not only will we most likely see the game released in a special package deal with the Wii U, but it is possible that the console itself will receive a physical overhaul. In the recent Hero’s Mode trailer, we see this modified Wii U right at the end. Nintendo has declined to comment on this development as of yet, so we still await official confirmation. In the meantime hit the jump to educate yourself about the Hero’s Mode and view the modified console in the video!
Apparently, the Hero’s Mode will be available from the start of the game. This will be a welcome bit of news for those of you that want to max out the difficulty level immediately! The mode will make the game harder in two ways. First, you will not have access to recovery hearts in the game. No more mowing the lawn for that heart you so desperately want! Second, all enemies will do double damage, so watch your step!
As to the picture of the redone Wii U, it appears to only modify the game pad itself. Whether or not the actual console will receive a makeover is unknown. Till we receive further information from Nintendo, speculate however much you would like! Maybe our hopes for the modified Wii U will come true.
