It’s a great look at what to expect when the game releases on September 20th digitally and on October 4th for retail players. If you haven’t yet, check out the new Ganondorf figure that’s coming with certain retail boxes and let us know which version of the game you’ll be picking up.

    Very nice looking trailer. I’ve been on the fence about this game from the start, but the more I see about this lush world, the more this is looking like a day 1 purchase for me. Hero mode for the win!

    • Chad Dodsworth

      It’s a timeless classic

  • Magnus Eriksson

    It looks really great. I like the style of it.

    (seems like ive got myself an enemy here as i get downvoted for this :D)

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      I get them depending on my posts. Votes are numbers, do they even matter? :P

    • Merrfn

      Whoops I just realised that I did that, on accident of course.

      I am not your enemy ;(

  • mr.Goodbar

    Is this game really that good? I remember when it first came out on the GC it looked too kiddie and turned everyone off..

    • Luna Moonfang

      Cel Shading is not “kiddie”, btw. But yeah, IMO this is one of the most creative Zeldas I have played, and it feels really good playing it. (also, BEST OST EVER!)

      • mr.Goodbar

        Never said cel shading was kiddie. The style cartoon design is what everyone talked about back then. And he does look kiddie. What is OST? The best is OoT.

        • jay

          OST= Original SoundTrack

          Only “mature” gamer nerds were calling it kiddie.

          Anyone over 18 who’s still calling stuff kiddie or “baby” needs to grow up.

          • Magnus Eriksson

            Ive always thought of Zelda more as girlie, not kiddie. But of course, irs main target is 6-9 year olds…

          • mr.Goodbar

            It does look silly for a grown man over 17 to play games that look like pokemon. It just don’t look right at all. Might as well play with hello kitty and call it all right.

        • ICHI

          Original sound track. I remember the backlash Nintendo got after previewing the new style, hell even I was almost put off. It was worth having a little faith as the story and game were excellent.

          • mr.Goodbar

            Nice! That’s the answer that suits the question. Thx.

        • C4

          It is good and it’s not kiddie, however I don’t like the character design especially NPCs and some other unimportant characters. Then again NPCs always look weird in Zelda games :)

          I think you should give it a try, if you like one Zelda I don’t know why you won’t like TWW.

          • mr.Goodbar

            I’ll download it and give it a shot. Thx.

  • Re4wii2008

    I gotta say the overall lighting effects (Especially the Sunlight) look much better and that’s great because when they first showed it in January the characters looked more realistic then toon shaded which might of been cool but I like what they did with the game I can’t wait for October!

  • Tecpedz94

    Can anyone explain why Nintendo just added a Zelda game to the bundle usually these bundles have Nintendo land the extra game like Mario bros, MH or zombie u plus a pro controller for a great price…. (I know the gamepad has a cool design of Zelda and it comes with hirule historia download but these additional things dont cost much)

    • Fred

      This bundle is just the Deluxe Wii U Gamepad with Zelda design and digital copy of wind waker. NO Nintendo Land no pro controller $300

  • Merrfn

    Looks stunning. I can’t wait to try it out. Breathtaking, both visually and gameplay wise. Day one purchase. I am just curious to know how they will incorporate the gamepad…

  • Ernie Sanguyo

    I love that ocean theme.. it’s really a hero song made me play even more lol.

  • Nintendo4life

    I beat it the first time…I can beat it again..But i pre ordered mine today with the ganon statue

  • Fred

    Thanks Ashley. I’ve never played this game and that trailer increased my interest in the game.

    • http://about.me/overlordror Ashley King

      No problem! I hope people who haven’t seen the game take an interest after seeing this.

  • Madmagican

    I literally got the original version the day before Nintendo announced the remake and since then I’ve played through the game a couple times but I don’t know if I should get the updated version just so I can support Nintendo
    Maybe in a few years, once I’ve got the Zelda craving again

    • crocodileman94

      By then, a new Zelda game will be released. Just sayin’

      • Madmagican

        nah, I get the itchin’ for Zelda every few months or so
        …so a few months after Link Between Worlds; prob’ly early-mid 2014 if at all

  • PlayboyPacquiao

    I’m definitely buying this. I had a xbox instead of a GC that generation so I didn’t get to play WW.. I hope by Black Friday, there’s some buy 1 Wii U game, get 1 free or half off deals.

  • NintendoNoob

    I just saw that Zelda themed “U” on the back of the limited edition. Now it makes me regret buying a Wii U on launch DX

  • Peter Rogers

    cud someone plz help me. im writing this message through my gamepad and having no problems using discus through the wii u browser, however, when i come on wii u daily through my phones browser (galaxys2) discus isnt even attempting to load, hence no comments show so i cannot leave messages. any ideas….anyone????

    • Peter Rogers

      oh and btw.. windwaker is lookin sleak n sexy.. cant wait

  • david jarman

    I have tears in my eyes and I’m not cutting onions! Sniff! It’s the music! It makes me wanna go on an adventure!

  • tooby77

    I played this game only when i was behind bars, it helped the time to run away for3y . :)

    • Peter Rogers

      it took u 3yrs to complete it with all that time on your hands….

      • tooby77

        Yes about 78 times

        • Peter Rogers

          lol. i bet your amazin on it now. do a speed run and post it on youtube

          • tooby77

            Hehe that was about 2003 or what year it was. Havent played it once after that. I pre order it thoe so u never know. :)

    • jay

      There’s no way they let you play that in Prison.

      • tooby77

        What do u know about that? I got that prison to buy 2 gamecubes for each cellblock. Mate, i disnt go to jail in the states. I was i Arnöanstalten in Nyköping, Sweden. Our jail is like a kindergarden with good good food, barbeque every saturday, u have your own computer if u like and so on. So yes i played it there. But now we are a bit of topic i guess

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          Nah, you were proving your point. It was necessary.

        • Magnus Eriksson

          Tjena grabben! Satt du länge?

          And yes he is talking truth. Swedish prisons is way easier than american.

          • tooby77

            Satt 2 år av 3. Sköter man sig så gör man bara 8mån/år

        • KnowledgeIsPower

          As happy as I am that you had the opportunity to play this game people in prison don’t deserve such luxuries in fact they don’t even deserve to be treated as human beings.

          • ICHI

            What!?!?! I don’t even wish to begin writing the reason for my shock, I have things to do today.

          • KnowledgeIsPower

            Please go ahead and write your reasons I am more than happy to hear them.

          • ICHI

            Well as a simple start how are you supposed to reform people if you treat them like animals? Basic human principals are what a lot of people who end up in prison lack through never being taught. Showing people who had no chance how they can make a change makes the state break the cycle which got those people there in the first place. I understand some will never change, some are born evil, but you never know who you can get through to so why discriminate? The system is based on earning back societies trust. People who make comments like that are always part of the problem and never give ex convicts a chance to show their reformation within the real world which sends them back down the same path.

          • KnowledgeIsPower

            You now as well as I do that the only thing that prison does is turn criminals into super criminals.

          • ICHI

            Yeah totally! Did you know prisoners get taught how to turn volcano’s into evil lairs too!

          • KnowledgeIsPower

            When you throw murderers, rapists and thieves in the same building nothing good can come of it.

          • C4

            Depends on why they actually are in prison.

          • LittleMofreaky

            Oh fuck off

          • tooby77

            So it doesnt give me the right to sit 3 y for fucking up the man that beat up and almost killed my grandmother?

      • Peter Rogers

        you can get a console and tv here in the uk too in jail, for good behaviour

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        Actually, some prisons do allow games and other forms of entertainment. Usually those who are on good behavior I would think.

  • aldo2410

    That’s exactly the only part of the game that I was able to play on Gamecube when a good friend lend me the game for a day, so it doesn’t spoil me the game

  • Negatron99

    It’s… So… Beautiful… I’m… Crying again.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    There sure is a lot of WW news than news in general for Nintendo.

  • Leo

    I have no words to describe how beautiful is this game O.o

  • Elitepwnsface

    I was hoping they would present more of the game.
    -Sad they only showed things from the first few areas. What ever it was good, and looks stunning.

  • Mseevers95

    I tried playing Wind Waker on gamecube and it is finally starting to show some age, It’s amazing how well the graphics look after 10 YEARS.

  • Javy G

    No offence WiiUDaily, you will be abandoned once this game comes out.

    • Saleh Sbeiti

      How? Is it because Wii U players will be on Wind Waker?

      • Javy G

        Yup. I will come out from my cave and maybe get a glimpse of the sun but that’s it. Never played this game so I usually stay away from Internet to keep from looking at LPs, reviews, or secrets revealers to avoid spoiling my experience. …Its my first time playing WW.

        • Saleh Sbeiti

          Some people actually enjoy watching LPs while they play, hence why it’s called, Let’s Play.

          • Javy G

            I have had my fair share of watching Let’s Plays, but there are only a few games out there that you would want to fully experience the story and gameplay. It’s kind of like a movie, an unexpected suprise happens and main character dies. Then, you play through the level and the suspence is gone as you already know what’s going to happen. Making the experience more of chore.

        • ICHI

          You’re going to have some fun then dude! I hope you enjoy every second

  • Johny

    looks sexy as fck :D sweet trailer Nintendo.. now advertise like that on tv and everywhere, and you’re golden

  • Saleh Sbeiti

    It’s funny how Nintendo fans are glorifying a game for it’s graphics.

    • lonewolf88

      everyone wanted HD zelda what people didn’t look for but suprised me was mario kart.

      • Saleh Sbeiti

        Nintendo fans pre-E3 2011:Graphics don’t matter!

        Post E3″ZOMGEWD ZELDER H-DAY!!!!!!!!

        • ICHI

          That’s not quite right, you’ve missed the gameplay part of the argument to try and look funny. I also wished skyward sword was on a more powerful machine so it looked more alive, but there are still sections of that game which look incredible and take your breath away. I can’t imagine what a Zelda game on the Wii U would look like but this remake is looking very nice. Plus everyone here knows it plays great’ even if they have never played it.

          • Saleh Sbeiti

            Nintendo fans say graphics don’t matter, until a Nintendo game is HD. And they’re going to be saying that again when they’re arguing with Sony and Microsoft fans,

          • ICHI

            Yeah I got your point I just don’t think its valid. Graphics don’t matter if you’re trying to make a good game, but a good game that also looks good is desirable. The people who hate on Nintendo fans can only pick at graphical capability, not game quality, so it’s brought up time and time again. Where as if a game purely looks great but plays like crap then you’re still never going to play it to the end. I know (as do many here) wind waker is one of the best Zelda games in the series (it actually is my favourite). So the fact the HD upgrade made it look gorgeous is an excellent benefit to something I already know I enjoy. Saying the Nintendo fans are harping on about graphics is a little different than what’s actually happening and being mindful of the situation might make you sound less ignorant.

          • Saleh Sbeiti

            I’m a Nintendo fan too. I’m just sayin’ a lot of Nintendo fans always seem to generate excuses for Nintendo when things are looking grin in a forum or other websites that feature gaming content.

          • lonewolf88

            really i care less about graphics but! does that mean i don’t like them? no of course not the whole argument that started that was “graphics make up the game” which is false i could make a indie game that could be funner and sell better than a game like assassins creed that has good graphics and have my indie game with 480p resolution but maybe a good art style.

      • ICHI

        Yeah that was a big surprise, I ended up walking around telling people about it.

  • Stephen Davis

    GOOD JOB NINTENDO!! Very nice trailer indeed

  • Adam Porter

    severely unimpressed by the graphics, i thought they would blow me away but they just look the same as the old version. IDK i guess i’ll buy it to try the new tri force piece quests but apart from that i don’t see much reason to have this over the ordinary version.

  • trevelyn412

    I have been thinking about the release dates – Sept 20th for digital and Oct 4th for packaged. Well, I have the WiiU basic version so I can only buy the packaged product which, obviously means I have to wait while others are playing it. During this time they will most likely be publishing weblog posts and videos galore and reviews, etc – which I will not be able to avoid since I subscribe to many of these sites. This will desensitize me to the release by showing the intros and menus and sounds and music – and I will most likely end up procrastinating to buy it on Oct 4th THEN most likely end up not buying it at all. So. Thank you for this skewed and tremendously stupid marketing strategy Nintendo, you will be saving me $50!! :)
