Great news for The Wind Waker HD! Roger Langford, Nintendo’s UK product manager, says the game is a “triple-A” new release, and will boost the momentum of sales for the Wii U consoles. The Wii U has struggled to get on its feet, but with The Wind Waker HD such a huge success with Zelda fans, Langford hopes to reach a slew of new players as well. Langford said:

 “It is the perfect time for Zelda fans to discover Wii U. For many Zelda fans, this is the first time that they’ll discover Wind Waker and we’re treating the game as a triple-A new release.”

Nintendo also hopes the remake of The Wind Waker can match the success of 3DS’ update of Ocarina of Time. Langford added:

“Ocarina of Time 3D performed positively on Nintendo 3DS and we’re looking to replicate this success with The Wind Waker HD.”

Do you own a Wii U? Do you plan to purchase one to play The Wind Waker HD?

    My birthday's the 14th so I'm so getting this. Although I'm still kicking in some money, because me and my little brother are buying it.

    I bought mine in August to play Nintendo Land before I get Wind Waker. I will get Z-WW on Oct. 4th.

    Is there any way to see the sales numbers for the eShop version? The Miiverse page for Wind Waker absolutely blew up with posts.

    just for an HD remake of a game that was already Wonderful … I wouldn't buy it.. I need a New Zelda!!!

      I was honestly not excited about replaying WW, seeing as how I've aready played it through about six times, with the most recent playthrough only just over a year ago. I bought the bundle to get the limited edition Zelda console. However, now that I'm playing through it again, I must say it is a BLAST! The little touches Nintendo added make the game even more fun than it already was. Not to mention it is GORGEOUS. I mean really, the screen shots don't do it justice, you have to play it for yourself. It is by far the prettiest game I've ever played. It really is well worth the buy and worth playing again. That being said, I can't wait for Zelda U either!

        Rachel we should date

  • Amy

    Im hoping this will encourage them to remake mm. 🙂

  • We already played WW

    Jeez, people, calm down… You're acting like it's the second coming of Ocarina. How about talking about a game your audience haven't played….. Like A Link Between Worlds! I'd love to hear more about that game, seeing as IT HASN'T ALREADY BEEN RELEASED IN 2003! ZU's a Zelda fan site and should cover Zelda news, but how much has Nintendo been paying these writers to suck their dicks?

    • MikeL

      ZU report news about ALBW as soon as they get them. Not much they can do when there are no news.

    WWHD, nah I'll past. I'm still waiting too see if Zelda Wii U is worth buying a Wii U for. I found "Skyward Sword" lukewarm at best. Flying around on cartoony birds, inclusion in the main story line of secondary (and Irreverent) characters, and limited scope. I'm hoping for darker tone and more open world in Wii U.
