The Wind Waker Reborn coming in HD to Wii U!

Aiming to tide us over while a brand new Zelda is made

Nintendo today announced that it has an all-new Zelda game in the works, but admitted it’d take some time to reach us. However, it did have something very exciting to satiate hungry Zelda fans in the interim — The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker Reborn!

A full HD remake of the classic GameCube title, Reborn is slated for release in Fall and will feature one of the prettiest games of all time getting even prettier. It’ll feature some gameplay tune-ups to make it more of an elegant experience, it can be played on the GamePad, and there’ll be Miiverse integration. 

Looking at comparison images, this is no mere upscale. Nintendo can make its games look gorgeous now, and it seems committed to getting Wind Waker as gorgeous as can be. More textures, more details, more eye-tonguing glory. Most exciting. 

Is this fluid in my pants? I think this is fluid. 

In my pants.
