Wind Waker HD is a 2.6GB download of fuzzy feelings

Second wind (waker): Legend of Zelda eats up all the bytes

I don't think I ever get tired of looking at Wind Waker.

Winder Waker HD is dropping soon (October), so you better set aside a good chunk of time to delete all those games off of your Wii U to make some room. The game, now over a decade old, will command 2.6GB of download space should you choose to nab it from the eShop, according to Nintendo Everything. And you'll give it its space, damn it. It deserves every byte.

It will also run at 1080p, support surround sound, and support Wii U Pro Controllers.

Do you have the 2.6GB to spare? Are you going retail on this one? Maybe wait until it's on sail? Will Link's emotive little Wind Waker face ever not be the cutest thing? (No, it won't)
