It's a sad state of affairs when the biggest title a new console has on the cards is a HD port coming out towards the end of the year. If Nintendo are planning on selling any Wii Us over the next few months they're going to have to arrange a leak of the games they and the other publishers haven't announced yet.

No one was expecting that, least of all me. Especially when you consider that people have been expecting remakes of Majora's Mask and A Link To The Past for ages.
Those screens look so amazing. I'd happily buy it again.

While I didn't expect it, it's a nice thing to see. I just hope they add more to it, because the whole collecting the Triforce Shards kinda ticked me off.

I literally caught my breath. I need a Wii U now, for I have never played this game and the GameCube version is near impossible to find for cheap. Wooooooooh!

This just made my year. Wind Waker is my favourite zelda game, possibly linked to it being my first, but that doesn't change how awesome it is. And those pictures they showed were stunning. Add a new dungeon to lengthen it a bit, and whatever you do don't touch the pictobox sidequest, and I'm happy for life.

Hd windwaker is Pointless. The gamecube version still plays and looks gorgeous. In fact, the HD visuals seem to remove all of the character the original had. They'd be better just sticking the original on virtual console. Nothing excited me at all at Direct. 101 looks like quirky japanese rubbish. Virtual console is hopeless and only good for possibility of GameCube games. Xenoblade looked good until those stupid numbers started streaming from the monsters.... Hate hit point crap. Yoshis yarn looked good. Liked playing Kirby with niece. Mario and new Zelda obviously good news but where were the preview reels for them? Miiverse is great .... For kids. Seriously, what adult wants to leave game notes and pics for kids to read. I turn it off on wii u games I play. I want to play a game in peace without repeatedly seeing irrelevant messages from kids or being asked if I want to post a message after every level. Stupid messages like "Watch that moving platform" or "this levels hard"! A real annoyance!!! I hate people who post boring stuff about themselves on Facebook every day. I certainly don't want that carrying over to my gaming too.

If they add in the 'missing content' form the GC version and make the Triforce quest less of a ballache, it'll be nice.

But still, TAKE MY MONEY NINTENDO.

I'll finally get the chance to play Wind Waker without paying £40+ for a used GameCube copy... OF COURSE I'M EXCITED ABOUT A REMAKE!!!

I think Nintendo must be an organisation of Master Thieves... They're always taking my money!

Would rather have a HD Twilight Princess as it'd benefit from the upgrade more and it was better than WW.

its like shoving a giant cake in your face and saying that you can only have some of it, even if it all tastes so good and beautiful.

Well, I certainly did not expect this. I played Wind Waker only a few times a while back, but never managed to complete it (I was borrowing my brother's copy). It's too expensive to buy now, so I must now place Wind Waker HD onto my games wishlist now, thanks Nintendo =)

I never had a GameCube, so I never played wind waker, so I am really excited by this. I was mulling over the thought of getting a wii u, but this is the perfect reason!!! :D

Twilight Princess and Wind Waker are both gamecube games as heart (even if twilight princess was ported to the wii) and Wind Waker focuses on block colours which still look good, and Twilight Princess focused more on details which just come up blurry on a hdtv. They probably only chose Wind Waker because everyone knows Majoras Mask is coming on 3DS and Twilight Princess you can play on your wiiu using the wii disc and ocarina of time was remade recently. It was a process of elimination. They are obviously trying to make this into the wii u's Ocarina of Time 3D. But there again revisiting Hyrule on 3DS was amazing, and seeing the world and characters remade was a lot better that I was expecting it to be. I will probably get my Wii U around Autumn then.
When I go out some people ask me-Hey what's with the name. Well My real surname is Newcomb. And its sounds like Nukem as in Duke Nukem the game character (never played it, im two young). So I have adopted it and put in frustrating capital letters.

I wonder; will this game incorporate motion controls like Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, or will it stick to button controls like the original Wind Waker?

hopefully they can tidy up the collecting the shards mess AND finally include the dungeons that were scrapped from the final game that we all know about and wanted in a ''master quest'' sort of idea on any re release
