Looks a bit odd, almost like they grabbed a random ENB off the internet and shoved it into the Wind Waker engine.

environments all look beautiful, and I think the bloom works too. But the characters look too solid. Hopefully they'll dial that back

Its missing the hard lines. Everything looks like a cheap CGI movie when put together.The missing hard lines don't affect the enviorment as that does look great, but the characters look SUPER bad now. Holy crap something is wrong.

Now they will make a Wind Waker that is as good as everyone remembers it being, I have a feeling updating gameplay will result with shorter sailboat travel times, fine with me.

It's like Nintendo took every piece of wild fan speculation surrounding this Nintendo Direct and made it a reality.

Yeah... ummm guys that is still "cel-shading" which in itself is just a marketing term. But with vastly higher poly counts and more realistic lighting that might not be a perfect fit.

Until I see lava I can't decide if it's acceptable or not.

Hard lines?

Unless you just mean the stark contrasts between shaded and lighted I'm not sure what you mean with that.

Might as well get ready for that premium price with no foreseeable drop. The only way Nintendo does it.

You what it reminds me of? When students recreate their favourite game (usually Zelda) in the Unreal Engine, but don't know quite enough about the tools to not make it look generic and bland. The textures and geometry are all there, but the 'secret sauce' is missing. I do wonder if this is a project intended for the Zelda team to get an eye for next-gen (well, current-gen) development.

If Nintendo starts porting some of their classics to HD, I might actually have to buy a Wii U! Now bring the OoT remake to the system, too.

Is it me or does Link's model look slightly off. It's bit like how the imported model looked in GMod.

Also I doubt they'll remove content because of the storyline. Additional features will be tacked on most likely like the Four Sword dungeon in the GBA remake of aLttP.

Those clouds look beautiful, specially since in the original game they were so awful, they looked like they were imported straight out of Mario 64. TBH that's about the only thing that looks great in the HD remake judging from those screens, hope they don't make the water opaque again...

Err, dunno...

Wind Waker is probably my favourite recent Zelda and one of the things I loved the most was the exaggerated Cel-Shaded. The remake looks a bit weird, the environments look nice, too much post-procressing perhaps but the characters look weird, I will have to see it in motion.

If its the original but with better graphics. Then I wouldn't play this game if you paid me. The 2nd half of WW is easily the worst gaming experience I've ever had in my life. Unlike other bad games where I could stop playing, I couldn't not finish a Zelda, it was sacriligious (This was before the even worse DS ones).

Now make the 2nd half of the game just as fun as the first half.(add dungeons) Fix sailing. Add warp to every square of the map and add some content in the empty ocean then this would easily be the best Zelda game since lttp.

Cel-Shading is just a marketing term? THIS is Cel Shaded? lol. No, it's not.

It feels like they used INSANE lighting settings to get the strong light and the extremely hard shadows.

I have wanted this remake for a long time, but Nintendo needs to use this opportunity to add more content (dungeons, islands, sidequests) to the game. Wind Waker always seemed kind of half baked.

If that screenshot is the actual render resolution, it won't be hard to achieve that.

Seriously GAF, I'm at work, I know Nintendo Direct is happening at 2pm (GMT) and off I trott for lunch at 2:20-ish.

I opened Twitter and the first thing I saw was 'Wind Waker HD' - I'm sure my jaw must have hit the table.

Basic Wii U just got a whole lot more tempting.

Triforce Quest is fine if you read the clues and chart your journey. The big problem is going to Tingle and grinding rupees. If they slash the prices and allow you to contact Tingle from afar (new use for the Tingle Tuner?) then the whole process will be streamlined.

I'm hoping they have the original game remade, and then a "Master Quest" of sorts that evens out the Triforce quest at the end and maybe throws in 2 extra dungeons or something.

Either way, this looks fantastic and I'd be happy just to play WW in HD.
