Does Wind Waker Really Need An HD Remake

Spoiler Alert! It doesn't

This week Nintendo announced at itís Nintendo Direct Conference that Wind Waker is getting an HD upgrade, but does the game really need one. If you donít know Wind Waker was made with using Cel-Shading graphics. Cel-shading is a type of rendering made to not look realistic. Cel-Shading is usually done in video games to make the game look like a cartoon. This type of shading typically ages better that of the photo-realistic games today like Black Ops 2 and Far Cry 3.

Wind Waker tends to be talked about as the Zelda game that has aged the best out of all other games in the series. So thereís really nothing putting the game in HD could do to make the game look better. What Nintendo, or whoever is working on the game, could do instead of making the game look better is improve the controls.
Iíll leave some comparison pictures of the HD remake and the original below.
