Yes yes, even though i haven't played this before, I would like a challenge please!

First person enhancements hmm , a hint for the future? Zelda Wii U.

They've been loving experimenting with first person since Ocarina with TP and SS.

I'm sure the Call of Duty audience are excited.

Lol

Nintendo are trying so hard

Good news about the Triforce quest, though

Wow they did quite a few changes in addition to the graphics. Won't hurt to pick it up and play it through, it is one of the finer Zelda games for sure!

So excited for this. The ability to take selfies will be one of the greatest innovations in gaming.

Hero mode should alleviate some of the difficulty complaints with WW. Double damage and no health drops seems good.

Enhanced first person movement feels reaaaaaally suspicious as if they're vetting it for Zelda U.

Hero mode unlocked from the start is great news. Wind Waker is the most challenge free Zelda game as far as I know.

All of those changes sound fucking excellent. Hero mode from the start means that I'll probably pick this up when I get a Wii U.

As long as it's optional and works well, that can only be good for a future Zelda. In Elder Scrolls, you also have the choice between 1st and 3rd person, but I always go for 1st because it works better for me. Similarly, I could just use 3rd person in Zelda if they ever decided to make both fully available.

Excellent. This is basically everything I wanted from this. Minus working the two cut dungeons back in, but that was more wishful thinking than anything.

Link to take selfies? Nintendo truly understands this generation.
Oh man. Bathrooms with mirrors have been added to all of the dwellings?
OK, no, but I sure hope they actually look like Link is holding the camera instead of some photo taken by another person.

EDIT:
Also, the biggest change for me isn't listed here. When selecting a wind direction, its done by actually looking in the direction the wind will blow, instead of from a disorienting, North-is-up top-down perspective.

Quite curious how they will be found... while I wish there will be new dungeons, I doubt it would happen.

Good to hear they've implemented more than just cosmetic changes. Sounding like a good HD port.

Sounds fucking GREAT. Now it's going to be hard to choose to buy this or Sonic Lost World ALONGSIDE Pokemon X /Y.

Hero Mode available from the start really seals the purchase for me.

Definitely some nice changes, still not a fan of the bloom lighting but will probably get this if I ever feel like playing The Wind Waker again.

I'm almost positive this doesn't mean you can play in first person. I'm sure it just means that when you are in the first person mode to use items that require it it will be enhanced in some way.

Edit: Yeah.. first person with weapons it makes sense with only.

From the USGamer article

I decided to take a different approach to Wind Waker. I switch over to Link's bow and arrow and took careful aim in the first-person view by tilting the Wii U Game Pad just so and started taking out enemies from across the room. And then I noticed that Link now has a newly acquired ability to move while in first-person mode rather than being limited to panning around. So I stayed in first-person mode, plinking bad guys from a distance and shooting them again when they recovered.
So you can move at least.

This isn't new to Zelda. Skyward Sword had the same ability to move in first-person and shoot arrows. So before you rejoice/despair know that it's extremely limited and you can't play the game like this. You can't interact with anything, use your sword or most items. It's still just a novelty that I tried it out for only a few minutes.

As for the other changes they sound great.
