Check out a screenshot comparison between Zelda: Wind Waker for GameCube and the HD remake for Wii U.
This looks like the best HD remake I've ever seen, in terms of improving over the original in terms of graphics.
Isn't it also the first one to take a game from two generations ago? If you think of Wii U as next gen?
What about the HD version of the Saturn's Nights in to Dreams that I am reliably informed by the internet was released on the Playstation network and Xbox Live not long after late last year?
@Picnic Well, that's from the Saturn. Three generations :P But yeah, in that sense it might challenge Zelda.
Yeah I got to agree. I'm hoping FF10 gets the same treatment. If thats the case I can see why its taking longer than expected.
Not that I'm a MS fanboy or anything... but Halo?
Good call, Anniversary was a great remake, I had totally forgotten about that, 343 really went to town with new models and new textures.
The characters look stuffed in the remake :/ I thought they could've captured the artstyle a bit better.
the characters seem to stand out over the backgrounds.. the moss/grass looks kinda flat. looks cool though, it looks similar to Nintendoland
In regards to the grass/moss, from what it looks like they aren't changing the games geometry. Just looks like a reskin with some lighting enhancements.
they kinda do, though i dont mind the new "rounded" style. Also we need to wait and see it in motion to get a better grasp of it. This is the type of graphical style that really shows its beauty in motion
The Gamecube is my favourite Nintendo console, brought us some amazing looking games and Wind Waker is one of the best. I'm really hoping the WiiU goes back to the GameCube days where they catered to the hardcore gamers. Now release the Resident Evil remake in HD!
It's too bad people didn't think like you at the time. I loved my platinum Cube but most of my friends had moved on to Xbox while taking to calling my system a childs toy...bastards!lol
It just looks Beautiful. Imo Windwaker for the cube is one of the best looking games ever made with its completely timeless style. And this just looks a lot lot nicer. I for one really like the look of those new character models and think they will look awesome when they are animated.
Better than PC Graphics
I am probably in the minority here, but i still prefer the aesthetic of the original.
Autumn cannot come soon enough.
