Nintendo is readying Zelda: Wind Waker HD for release on the Wii U, and we’re certain it’ll be a best seller. And according to Amazon, the game might not cost as much as other Wii U games.
Amazon has listed the price of Wind Waker HD for the Wii U at $49.99, which is $10 bucks cheaper than other first party Wii U games. When it comes to game prices, Amazon has a very strong track record of getting it right.
Usually, publishers will price HD remakes below the regular retail price, and it appears that this is exactly what Nintendo is doing.
Not that it will matter too much though — Wii U owners are going to buy Wind Waker HD whether it costs $50 or $60. When it comes to Zelda, and the HD remake of one of the most original Zelda games ever, $10 bucks makes very little difference. Some might even think that $50 is too much for an HD remake. We doubt it. What we’ve seen so far from Wind Waker HD on the Wii U has been impressive.
Last week, it was rumored that Nintendo is readying a Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle as well. Will you be picking up Wind Waker HD for your Wii U? Let us know in the comments section!
