Amazon Lists The Legend Of Zelda: Wind Waker HD For $59.99

Damien McFerran: ''The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is an updated version of the GameCube classic, which may lead you to assume that Nintendo will follow the example set by HD remakes on other consoles and give the game a lower-than-usual retail price.

Of course, that isn't how Nintendo works - recent 3DS remakes for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64 have both been sold at the same price as other retail titles, and if this listing on Amazon is anything to go by, the same will be true of The Wind Waker HD.''

Sounds about right, even if the HD remaster is more expensive than the price of the original game for GameCube.

But I really don't care as long as the remake is done well.

deadfrag1868d ago

No it does not sound right in anyway!It sounds right to people that like to get shaft!This is the same Zelda from the GC with a more clean HD face,its a rip off price;for this money im not getting it for my Wii u!

... why Nintendo pulled out Gamecube Backwards Compatibility from the WiiU.

"Liked Windwaker!? Want to play it again!? Still have your Gamecube disc you bought on day 1 for full price!?...

...Yeah, too bad. The WiiU won't play it cause we want you to buy it AGAIN!"

I knew from the first announcement of 'No Gamecube Backwards Compatibility!' that they were going to do this.

Expect a 60 bucks HD re-release of F-ZeroGX announced before the end of the year.

All Sony HD collections are cheaper. God Of War Collection contains 2 HD games. 40 bucks. Ico collection. 2 HD games. 40 bucks. Nintendo is ripping everyone off. Sorry Nintendo fans.

WooHooAlex1867d ago (Edited 1867d ago )

Can't you get the God of War saga now? Which includes all 5 games for $40?

This should be $39.99

delboy1867d ago

Unlike Sony HD re releases this is a full REMAKE, still priced to much.
9.99$ for re release and 14.99 for proper remakes and that's for top line ganes.
Bought jak&dekster hd for 2$, it is not worth more.

AJBACK2FRAG1867d ago (Edited 1867d ago )

I kinda' think it's your choice what you buy. I'm so excited for this release I can't wait to play it. Yeah! I'd buy a hd F zero (GCN) this second. That game is sooooo righteous right now as is. An hd remake would be a fantasy come to life!

This is a brand new Wii U game that hasn't been given an official release so Amazon puts in what they would guess. The price may change later on. For what they are putting into the update, I would say it probably will be at least $40, but I doubt $60.

mi_titan271867d ago

exactly, if any of you noticed NSMBU was listed at $99.99 prior to an exact release date! so before you all get upset wait for the official announcement from nintendo

mi_titan271867d ago

did i really make a "disagreeing" statement, i made a fact statement.

wishingW3L1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

only to a blind fanboys this would sound right. A remake of just 1 game (if you can even call that a remake, more like an HD re-release) for $60 is exactly what is wrong with this industry. An incredibly shameless rip-off....

3-4-51867d ago

I'm guessing it will include extra content of some sort.

Something new that nobody has seen, thus making the extra $10 worthy.

sounds great. plus, it's pathetic to think $60.00 bucks is a lot of money.

jakmckratos1868d ago

Oh really? Maybe you could buy this game for me Seeing $60 isn't a lot of money.

BullyMangler1868d ago (Edited 1868d ago )

spoon fee you you want me to?

then how will you ever learn?

get back to me once you finish hearing him . unlocking the door to wealth is easier than you think.

A2X_1867d ago


That was retarded.

LOL_WUT1868d ago

It is pathetic, for a remake to cost $60 especially for a Zelda game that is not even ranked 1st place amongst the rest of the other games. Only the hardcore Zelda fans would defend this. The Wii U's drought of games have really messed with some peoples heads... ;)

ChickeyCantor1867d ago (Edited 1867d ago )

Hardcore Zelda fans just appreciate the game Windwaker. Why is it ok for sony to release "HD" collections where the actual content is hardly touched but it's such a bad thing for Nintendo to remake windwaker like they did OOT. Which is with new models/textures/visual updates.

Windwaker is awesome, that's why lots of people don't care paying this amount. It doesn't meant they are deluded. It simply means they think it's worth it. THAT'S THEIR OPINION. So go be all high and mighty somewhere else.

deafdani1868d ago

Ok, now I see what you're doing. I fell for your game twice before, but now, all I got to say is: nicely done. 8/10.

firstly i doubt amazon actually knows the price its just a guess based on Wii u game prices at the moment and it could very likely be cheaper and I'm fed up with hearing Wii u has a drought of games, guess what every New system does this is not a wii u problem but a new console problem in general. if people expect a system to be realeased and have 100s of games in the first year your delirious, name 1 console that has had 50 plus games in 4 months, oh wait nonę, your lucky to get 30, the first four months are there to sell launch games and get systems out then games get released here and there for a bit, it not until second wave of games get released (roughly 8months to a year) you start to see a lot games, however e3 is coming up and it has games scheduled for almost evey month until then, then the big hitters are going to be announced anad released by years end. Nintendo has to keep things secret because there compatition has still to announce there platformds so ninty needs counter measures.

Jek_Porkins1868d ago

Could be a placeholder? Gamestop wouldn't give me a definitive price when I wanted to pre-order. I wouldn't think Nintendo would charge full price for a remake. I was expecting $39.99
