edit: original trailer from nintendo back online!


edit4: nothing is known about it other than what you see in that picture/end of the video!
yay misinformation: it's official now: Wind Waker HD is $50 and the Limited Edition Wii U deluxe bundle will be $299



edit: seems Nintendo pulled that trigger too early and removed the video already.

screencaps win again!

edit3: goes along well with this:

Personally I'm happy the Special Edition isn't that great. It means I won't have to buy another Wii U and sell the old one.

Why was no one made a new thread about the selfies feature? That is a game changer.

So the SE is just the game with gamepad stickers? Or is this a new hardware bundle?

I want a Zelda gamepad. Looks nice. Shame it was enough of a struggle to convince me to buy one Wii U at a discounted price, let alone a second at regular price.

Hmmm...I can deal with it I guess. And by that I mean not having the urge to sell my Wii U gamepad for this :p

don't find it bad at all. That being said, definitely not buying another Wii U (and/or trading my current one)

Now if it were a GOLD Wii U and Gamepad (like the Skyward Sword wiimote)

Yeah, even though it would be ugly as hell just for collectibility I would buy it.

As a Zelda fan and someone without a Wii U I would like a bundle but I don't want that control pad. Might have to just buy a normal Wii U Deluxe and the game separately when it comes out.

That is the laziest skin of a controller i have ever seen. At least the LoZ 3DS looked good... this... just looks like a sticker.

Ugly stickers on a controller = SE console? Iwata is overdelivering in value.
I've never seen a Nintendo console banded as an SE or LE with "stickers" or "decals" adhered, they always look printed-on to me, like you'd expect. In fact, I don't remember seeing that with ANY limited console by a proper manufacturer like Sony or Microsoft.

People are just saying decal/sticker to downplay its addition.

With that said, it looks okay, but doesn't exactly get me excited. Just makes the pad look "busier."

Did Nintendo ever work out a way to transfer content from one Wii U to another?
Get someone to steal it
File a police report
Give Nintendo police report
???

I don't think so.

GamePad looks nice, glad it's not like the special Zelda 3DS, otherwise I'd have to buy it.

What's with the "m" in the .com? What a weird detail to miss, lol.

Edit : Oh, it just wasn't done animating, hah.
