Today during the Nintendo Direct conference, Satoru Iwata confirmed that the GameCube game The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker will be making its way to the Wii U as an HD release. The game is being prepared for users as an offering to hold fast while a brand new Zelda Wii U title is being worked on. It is confirmed that a new Zelda title in on the way, but that development is taking a long time because Nintendo wants to “rethink the conventions of Zelda”.
As you can see from the above video, the new hi-definition graphics do the island justice. The game will also be available for off-tv play, so users can enjoy playing the game directly from their gamepad. No release date was given for the title, but expect it from Nintendo soon.
