Age rating: 7+
The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD for Wii U lets you relive Link's classic Zelda GameCube adventure in full 1080p. Set sail across the colourful ocean with faster sailing gameplay thanks to Swift Sail, and discover the secrets of the islands dotted about its vibrant cel-shaded world, all at a definition never seen before. Rescue Link's sister from the evil sorcerer Ganon and battle for the power of the Triforce across oceans, islands and dungeons in a classic Zelda adventure.
As well as the familiar elements from the GameCube version of Wind Waker, this HD edition of Zelda for Wii U comes with lots of new features. Among these new features is a brand-new item called the Tingle Bottle, which you can place a letter inside and cast into the sea. The message will then go out into the Miiverse, where it will travel from shore to shore and be picked up by other players from all over the world as a virtual message in a bottle.
Higher definition A reworked lighting and shadowing system makes the adventure pop more than ever, with its cartoon-like cel-shading taking full advantage of the power of the Wii U. Experience the visual improvement from the GameCube's 480p to this full-HD, 1080p remaster. Bloom lighting illuminates dark areas in a way that was impossible on the GameCube, so you will, quite literally, see the game in a whole new light. Objects now reflect the colour of passing light sources, while a more realistic shading system allows for softer shadows. Even the audio has been remastered, with higher-quality instrument samples than the original game. What this all means is The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD has never looked better and has never popped off the screen quite like this.
