He said they don't even know what the visual style of the new Zelda is going to be yet, everything was remake.

I honestly never thought they would do this.

But they are.

And I couldn't be happier. I really couldn't.

When they didn't mention GC at all during th VC stuff, I felt like that meant they'd jump on the HD train. And even better with this it sounds and looks like it is more than an upress, it's a total remastering.

Agreed, playing WW on Dolphin looks so much better than those shots, in my opinion...of course, the finished product may make it better, and it may be better in motion.

The Wind Waker was my first Zelda game, and this news makes me happy!! The HD update looks like it removed some of the vibrant colors, but we only had still images to work with.

Yep. The game would have looked lovely just with some cleaner textures and some AA. This went above and beyond into something magical.

Wind Waker has aged so beautifully too, and HD remake just puts it over the top.

No they shouldn't. I hate the cell style. On the other hand. I'm really enjoying playing Skyward Sword via Dolphin at the minute. That's a great art style. I'd be quite happy if Ninty went down that path.

Did you not watch the segment directly after when Iwata said they're releasing Wind Waker HD in the fall to tide people over while the main Zelda team works on the Wii U Zelda?

It happened like... right after that, dude.

I remember people being over the moon with OoT for the 3DS, but for all the fuss over the announcement an release it didn't do much for the 3DS at the time.

So I would have to agree, I loved WindWake and it looks awesome in HD regardless of a slight loss in style the original had, but I want new games to get me to buy their system, give me HD remakes/rereleases running up to a new game or afterwards, not as a stop gap because they haven't managed to plan ahead well for a new system.

Hey Nintendo, here's the fix list:

- Add much, much more land.
- Make travel less tedious (ie. not having to play that song every time I want to change wind direction).
- Fix that tedious Triforce quest.

Just make the non-land non-dungeon parts less tedious overall!

The lack of cel-shading doesn't really improve the look at all in my opinion.

Reserving my judgment until we get some actual gameplay. I didn't really like how different those shots were to the original. Plenty of development time though.

Why would you remake a cel-shaded game without the cel-shading? I mean.. is it just resolution I'm supposed to care about?

I like the look of the environments, but prefer the original cel shaded character models.

It seems to be early in development since we saw no footage at all. Hopefully improvements and tweaks to the visual style aren't finalized just yet.

I think they're currently sitting on the fine line between a HD upressing and a significant graphical overhaul- they need to pick a side. I'd prefer the former, but the latter also makes a great deal of sense. This half-way house doesn't real interest me either way.
