Two new Zelda games are in the works for Wii U.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AA!!!!! This is amazing ;A;
Nintendo rocked so hard today
I said not but the the other day - ITS WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY WAY TOO EARLY for wiiu doom articles. Mario kart Wiiu 3D mario WIndwaker HD Remake (like ocarina 3D) New Zelda titles - 1.5 years away Yoshi Game - looks like sex Shin megami tensei X fire emblem Monolith softs game looks like heaven Wonderfull 101 looks incredible Bayonetta 2 sounds awesome Smash bros U is on its way Etc etc . Add that to Pikmin 3 , Monster Hunter Ultimate , Lego city etc etc etc And it is clear the Wiiu is shaping up to Be Nintendo's best ever console. I am so incredibly satisfied with that Nintendo Direct. Game over competition , Game over.... Edit - Lol - the Wiiu haters look so incredibly stupid right now. We Nintendo Fans and multi console gamers rue this day , not you. This was a Nuclear bomb of a Nintendo direct. straight into the heart of N haters. People actually have the audacity to say A remake of Windwaker is a bad thing ? that's a must buy system seller right there.... Have you seen the graphics ? One more thing I would like to add is. Watch that Xenoblade video in full HD. Happy now Sony and Microsoft fanboys ? That game is 3 times as good looking as ANY xbox 360 or ps3 game. Nuff said. The wiiu is true next gen with it's gamepad , regardless of some rushed launch ports which took 5 months to port... Monoliths new game has the best console graphics I've ever seen.
@Kingofwiiu Whats with the big rant? lol :P Best Zelda in my opinion. Will look awesome in HD
Where's Mario party wii u?
I don't really understand the excitement for an hd remake. Nintendo fans have been telling us for the last six years that they don't care about graphics. So why not just release the original game on the wii u online store? Nintendo fans should be content with that right?
Doesn't sony get flack all the time for hd remakes? Strange.
KingofwiiU ... To rue the day is to regret the day. It's a negative not a positive. Other than that... go Nintendo, you may be getting my currency soon afterall!
What? Why are you Nintendo fans so excited for HD Remakes? They havent announced any new IPs or games. Just more Zelda/Mario and that too just an HD remake. Dont you guys get tired of Marios and Zeldas? It has been 30 years already. HD remakes are nice for nostalgia but they do not make or break consoles.
Looks like yall will be re-buying a bunch of wii games again, but in HD! wow! I'm still wondering why kingofwiiu is so excited for?? Nothing he mentioned interest me, except for maybe bayonetta 2.
I'm def going to pick up a Wii U this summer. I'm not to excited about Wind Waker HD remake as i have a gamecube with WW. But my god am i excited for a new Zelda, 3d Mario, new Mario Kart, a new smash bros, and a New Yoshi game lol. I don't have a problem with Nintendo releasing the same IP's over and over again since it seems like they are the only publishers/Devs that make these kinds of games any more.
is anyone really that surprised with these announcements? zelda and mario games are a given. Nintendo is pretty predictable.
It's all pretty predictable, but doesnt take away from the fact that these games are pretty awesome looking. I've owned every nintendo console since NES, and will continue to purchase them...even if I gave away my Wii halfway through this Gen, I feel like Nintendos are a must have for people that can afford all console systems, or at least 2. I didnt get to finish wind waker, because i hate handhelds, so this is actually good news to someone like me.
bu bu bu, teh sony pees4 has teh 8 core processor. no console will compete with my PC, so for graphics, i'll stick with that. Not saying the ps4 and 720 wont have fun games because they will, but Nintendo console games have always been the most fun. Nothing to do with physics processing or pixel count, its to do with fun factor. Awesome looking over the shoulder shooters are becoming boring.
I am not a fan of windy Zelda but I may just beat this game now. It actually will look gorgious and epic now. Now if this looks even close to the demo then it is game over. You have to understand many many wii owners bought high end pcs for our graphic whoring not pretend hd. So yeah we like our GAMEs to look good but not at the expensive of it not being a game any more. This is the gen ms and Sony lose a point because graphics is no longer the trumpet card.
Not long ago, Wind Waker was not much of a fan favorite, but now that it's in HD it's "amazing"? While it's nice to see Nintendo fans embrace HD graphics more lately and be excited about it, some of you fanboys are out of control and contradict each other. For example: @thezeldadoth Suddenly downplaying graphics talking about how "fun" is the most important thing while mocking the (yet to be announced) PS4's processor. And @Kingofwiiu, ranting defensively out of nowhere to no one and boasting HD graphics. No one talked about the competition except YOU.
TBH I did play Wind Waker in full HD about 5 years ago in the dolphin emulator. Just sayin.... This is a remake so they massaged the visuals for sure. Will be good to see it but rather have some more 'new' games as soon as possible Also OOT is clearly the best Zelda lol
@Vulcan I disagree. I think Majora's Mask is much better than Ocarina of Time.
Majora's mask is very good. But OOT is probably the highest rated game, console, handheld or otherwise, of all time. On Metacritic OOT wins out, on gamerankings SMG edges it by a tiny margin. Its right up there. Lots of good Zelda games. I didn't think Wind Waker was that great to be honest. Thats relative, because it was still better than most other gamecube games, but just not as good as OOT. Either way I still own both. Pretty essential gaming right there.
Meh Gamecube had Kart, 3D Mario etc and it wasn't enough. Wii sold so well because it was so easy to pick up and play for all generations the WiiU is not that. They want to go back to hardcore gamers again which I feel is a stretch too far. Still time will tell. As for this announcement they probably picked the WORST Zelda game to remake in HD.
... just so they can re-sell us the games we already bought. I'm happy that there's a proper HD-release coming out for a brilliant game ofcourse (and I'm sure F-ZeroGX HD will follow soon...), however, it's certainly not a reason for me tonow go out and buy a WiiU, at the current price, and with the whole region-locked controller crap it's got going on.
I was not expecting that sort of bomb. Zelda Hd remake a New SMT game AND Fire fcking elbem? Sony needs to step it up at destination playstation and E3 and take notes on how to present this stuff. That just landed a wii u in my future. EDIT:forgot about monolith's new game that was the spotlight of the entire direct for me.
I wouldnt worry about Sony however Microsoft on the other hand..... Anyways i didnt like wind waker at all when i had my gamecube but a new Zelda game sounds interesting. P.S The kind of Zelda games that i like are the ones like Twilight princess and Orcania of time. BTW even though Nintendo had plenty of games shown off i will still wait and see what Microsoft and Sony are going to do with their next gen consoles before deciding.
@MasterCornholio Yea i guess it is too early to decide,just overfilled with hype right now you just wouldn't believe... This Year been turning out pretty great so far
I think Sony and Microsoft are both in trouble, and it has nothing to do with Nintendo or the Wii U. Both of their gaming divisions are tanking. Sony is losing money left and right. Had to sell their US headquarters to pay off debts. Lost of 3 Billion last year. Microsoft is in the same boat. Sony makes super expensive games, then they don't sell anywhere near as good as they need to to be profitable. I'm worried about next generation systems for Sony and Microsoft.
Very nice :) I hope they add Twilight Princess in HD too! and Skyward Sword! :)
Wooow guys look at the screenies! :D http://www.neogaf.com/forum... :O
That lighting in the one with Link, Tetra and the lady with the pot on her head looks pretty good. These screens look great. I was hoping for an HD remake but I wasn't actually expecting them to go all out.
Yeah but when S4 and 720 comes out people are gonna be like.. Meh? There so last gen.. LOL. They look decent compared to current gen now but new consoles coming out is gonna blow them away.
Windwaker HD will inevitably be delayed until 2014 and who knows when the other new Zelda will be released.
please may I borrow your time machine
@Perjoss He'a making a joke because of the tradition of Zelda games being delayed for years.
Stoked for Windwaker, this one should be in native 1080p hopefully and Gamepad support will enhance an already great game. I would personally love it if they added wiimotion+ combat to, but that prob will not happen.
I remember being sceptical of Wind Waker leading up to the release and in the end I loved it. One of the more enjoyable Zelda games in years. This is fantastic for those who never had a chance to play it, but I'd love to revisit that whole world with a new adventure. Gimme Wind Waker 2!
Isn't Phantom Hourglass technically Wind Waker 2? Although what I think is that the new Zelda is going to be related to the Wind Waker world, at least the new 3DS one. I feel like there has to be a reason they chose Wind Waker to remake. Why not Majora's Mask like people are asking or why not make Twilight Princess that looks like the HD Experience?
I meant a new console version. I'm not a DS guy so I never played the Phantom Hourglass, plus there's just something about being able to explore those type of world's on a big screen that can't be replicated with a mobile device. I didn't care for Twilight Princess at all which surprised me. I've loved the Zelda series for years but I don't know if it was just uninspired or if I just didn't like the waggle controls, TP was the first console Zelda game I didn't bother to complete. A sequel to Majora's Mask would be welcome though.
OMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOM FGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFG O MFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMFGOMGGOMF G OMFG!!!!! I wrote last night that at E3 Nintendo is going to make every Nintendo fan's dreams come true. Guess they started a tiny bit early wow wow wow wow! This is an amazing time to be a Nintendo fan! Geeeeeeez! All the stupid haters listen up I was saying this a year ago and I love saying it right now,"THE WIIU IS GONNA' BE HUGE!".
"I don't really understand the excitement for an hd remake. Nintendo fans have been telling us for the last six years that they don't care about graphics." I didn't know Nintendo fans were a collective hivemind that shared the same thoughts on everything. Oh, they're not, so don't lump the whole with a select vocal minority, please. I notice that is a problem some gamers have.
I love my NES, SNES, N64, Game Cube, Wii and WiiU but come on this an extremely visual medium. It's funny I actually thought Wind Waker ran perfect as just a piece of software but back in the old GCN days believe me this was a huge game. There are some incredible moments and the uninitiated should not hesitate to check this baby out! You could probably buy this at Gamestop for under twenty bucks, pop it in your Wii, you'll be all set, for now! Majora's Mask. Please guys, please. Thanks!
My dreams have come true. O.O
How can people disagree that YOUR DREAMS came true? O wait this is N4G. Where people will disagree that the sky is blue.
The sky's not blue, it's purple.
@crazy_man How can people agree that HIS DREAMS came true? they will never know... look, if i disagree with a statement, i'm basically saying that I think different on that topic, in this case that MY DREAMS have NOT come true. easy as this.
I didn't disagree but i'll be honest an old Zelda does not excite me nearly as much as some of you, let alone is it a dream come true. No offense but it's my opinion. Don't attack me for it.
The sky is blue? News to me. I'm in England.
And best of all its a full remake, not a shabby port.
Funny thing is that most of the code is probably untouched because the CPU in Wii-U has all the instructions of the Wiis CPU. I hope they added some more tidbits to enhance the experience ( like new areas to explore )
That Direct was like a E3... Yoshi's Epic Yarn, Zelda Wind Waker HD, Fire Emblem X Shin Megami Tensei, then the big bang... Monolith Project X, showing Square Enix how it's done when it comes to JRPGs. Plus the confirmation that 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Retro Studios, and Smash Bros will be at E3 from Iwata himself?
I hoped they still saved some games for the actual E3. They'll be overshadowed by the next Xbox and PlayStation otherwise.
Even if they didn't save any new games, which I'm sure there's SOMETHING at least on the 3DS showing off the new Smash Bros. is enough to make every Nintendo fan go nuts. They know what they're doing. Even if we know what we're going to see it doesn't make seeing it any less awesome. New 3D Mario, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, third party games, 3DS games, actual footage of Wind Waker HD.
20$ tops its not like its a new game. @Crazy_man I doubt its gonna have say 10 hours of new game content so its just a facelift which should never be priced at 50$ for 1 game.
We don't know that yet. But yeah hopefully if its just a graphics uplift with Gamepad support its not $60.
but it's not a simple graphics uplift... Wind Waker is a complete remake. Gamepad support has been added + Miiverse
Remake =/= HD remaster.
I'd be willing to pay 40$ if they include more dungeons since it was rumored a while ago that they cut dungeons to get it to launch. Files of these dungeons actually can be found on the disc.
Didn't you see the direct? It will have a huge upgrade in graphics and not just a lazy HD remaster.
Wow I never thought we'd get an hd remake, hopefully they cut down the travel though :)
I don't understand, Nintendo said that the new Zelda is too far away and that here you have an HD remake to have something to play meanwhile and everyone is happy? Did you bought a new console to play remakes and a re-skin of Kirby Epic Yam?
Remaking a game with updated graphics and controls is gonna take a hell lot less time than building a new game from the ground up.
Oh, look! Lots of new exciting announcements from Nintendo! And yet, here's a this guy trying to spin all that into something negative...
Only exciting thing was the new Xenoblade, the rest was same old Nintendo with the same old ideas.
You're acting like they just screwed up at e3 or something. This is great news from nintendo for the year and it's not even past January yet. Plus tbh kirby epic yarn always reminded people of yoshi's island. It's not like they are so radically different that it won't work and make a great game.
Really....THIS is the best they can do? 'Remaster' a game that doesn't even look bad, due to the stylistic visuals.
Stop being ignorant. Of course this is not the best they can do, the team that has been working on the newest Zelda has nothing to do with WW Remake. Also a HD version of WW has been craved by the fans and now it is getting a total remake instead, meaning Nintendo is listening to its fans. How can you make that into something negative?
It's N4G. Everything can be made into something negative, no matter how positive. It's really sad, no?
I apologize if I sounded too brash in my first post. I just think all the time, money and resources being put into this project would be much better spent ya know....making new games. Games that don't revolve around Zelda or Mario. I want to really like Nintendo, I just can't get past the narrow minded nature of their franchises. It can look as pretty as it wants, it's still an old game on new hardware. The Wii U has new tech, make NEW games that utilize and compliment the hardware it's running on. It just seems like such a waste :( I'm sick of seeing such exciting new technology being used for nothing more than making essentially old games look better. I just want the software to be as innovative and ambitious as the hardware it's running on and stretch beyond simply 'looking good'
