Things haven't been too hot for Nintendo's Wii U since its launch, but recent months have seen an increase at last, coinciding with the release of big games like The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and the price drop on September 20. Read on for more.
Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD fan art challenge offered up plenty of incentive for creativity, and you can see a sample of it in the impressive animated winning entry after the jump.
Nintendo has a pair of new The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD clips for those hungry for more enhanced footage. The first video offers up a general introduction, and the second directly compares the beefed up graphics to the visuals of the 2002 GameCube original. Check 'em out after the jump!
Those of you who have played The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker before should prepare for a dose of fond memories courtesy of the latest trailer, which recounts the GameCube classic's story in pure HD glory. Relive some of those moments after the jump.
While Nintendo was detailing various announcements like the 2DS and Wii U price drop, it also dropped a little nugget about a limited edition of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD that packs in a Ganondorf figure. The special release, which is listed for $59.99 on GameStop's website, can be seen in the short UK preview video after the jump.
In addition to announcing the new 2DS handheld earlier, Nintendo also officially cut the price of the Wii U by $50. Now you'll be able to pick up a Deluxe version of the console for a suggested retail price of $299.99. More on that and the Wind Waker HD bundle after the jump!
In addition to the fan art challenge we posted about over the weekend, Nintendo has something else special planned for its The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert in Seattle: Playable kiosks featuring demos for Wind Waker HD and A Link Between Worlds. Read on for more!
In the midst of showing off Hero Mode in a new The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD trailer, Nintendo also inadvertently revealed the look of an upcoming Wii U bundle featuring the HD adventure. Nintendo pulled the video rather quickly, but thankfully it's been uploaded elsewhere in the meantime. More after the jump.
While catching up on all the isolated new videos of Nintendo's upcoming games, it's tough not to sit and smile as The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD footage sails into view. That and more past the break!
Despite the fact that Nintendo went against the grain with its style of E3 presentation this year, what we saw on display was more or less what we've come to expect from the company, including the Zelda games. Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma is more than aware of this, though, and, as he told Engadget, "If we don't change we might die." Read on for more.
