Feature: Reimagining The Wind Waker on Wii U

Announced last week by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata during Wii U Direct, The Wind Waker HD will be setting a course for the new system later this year, allowing gamers to experience the delights of one of Nintendo’s finest creations all over again. Teased with just a few screenshots, it certainly looks like a worthy upgrade to a timeless classic, and with enhancements promised it could become the definitive version.

However, the fact remains that the Wii plays GameCube games, and assuming the HD version retails at full price, the original possibly remains a more economical purchase for many new players. And with the original still looking stunning today, what justification do existing owners have to go out and buy the same game again? While on the surface it may seem like only the graphics have changed, there is also potential for so much more. (Nintendo, The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Wii U)
