Grin maker: Wind Waker HD is beyond delightful

My most anticipated Legend of Zelda game since The Wind Waker

Yep, I'm definitely more excited for The Wind Waker HD than A Link Between Worlds. I'm not trying to wind you guys up, really. Wind Waker is just one of the few Legend of Zelda games that I really dig and everything about seeing it in HD makes me smile. Its aesthetic is so clever, so colorful (literally and figuratively), so emotive. It doesn't just hold up. In HD, visually, this decade old title still leaves most contemporary efforts in its winding wake.

Things in the video aren't too different from what you remember, which is fine by me. A couple of the small touch ups, including faster sailing and smoother, quicker Wind Waker movements, are plenty welcome. Otherwise, this one really stands the test of time. Now I just need a Wii U before October.

Look at his adorable little face.
