Wind Waker HD Selfies

Recently we reported that the upgraded Picto Box capabilities in The Wind Waker HD allows Link to take funny photos of his own face. Now, you can see what this looks like in some off-screen video footage provided by GameXplain. You can toggle through different emotions such as happiness, shock and fatigue.

Another gameplay video from GameSpot shows footage of the entire Hyrule Castle section. The representative shows how you can drag and equip items on the GamePad touch screen without pausing the game, as well as access the options while the game is running. The recently announced first-person view is also demonstrated, with both motion control and traditional buttons supported while in this view.

You can switch between TV and Off-TV (GamePad-only) play on the fly with the Minus button. Interestingly, you can turn Hero Mode on and off whenever you want–which is fantastic, as you don’t have to commit to a whole Hero Mode run once you’ve already started and can experiment with both difficulties as you please.

Even with the footage captured off-TV, the game is looking beautiful. It seems fitting that the second video starts with the frozen, black-and-white Hyrule before transitioning into full colour–like it’s teasing how great it all looks.

Please note: For those who have not played the original, the second video contains a very late section of the game and some major spoilers.
