Wind Waker U

Along with them re-confirming a new Zelda title on the WiiU (still no new haps on the next 3DS title....) we get this. 

While I want TUWAIRAITO PURINSESU, this looks pretty fucking brilliant.

Zelda is not an RPG.

:P
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

So uh, this is the only 3D Zelda that I think is worth a shit. And oh my god does that comparison shot look awesome.

Maybe they'll complete the dungeons that got scrapped?

That'd be perfect.  If they did that, I'd buy whatever $200 special Gold Edition Wii U tablet they sell.

Bzzz cannot comprehend. Bzzzz

Still don't agree. :P

Agree or not I don't want to see Zelda threads immediately turn into arguments over whether or not they're RPGs, so drop it.

This is actually pretty cool news to me seeing as how I evaded every zelda entry since OoT.... I was hard pressed to choose between indulging WW or TP recently and jumped on TP.... glad I did as this would certainly be how I would want to play WW (obviously)....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Who knew that PXZ getting a localization would be the least surprising surprise news this week (or at least the least interesting).

But yeah, would totally love to see this. Even beginning to imagine the Ganondorf fight at the end in glorious HD is almost enough to get me to cream my pants (and then there's yet another SMT/Persona game and...wait, what! *creams pants*).

My one issue is that there seems to be a bit too much bloom in the screenshots/trailer, but that'll be nothing but water under the bridge if they either give the third pearl a proper dungeon or make an extra big extra island that, while similar in principle to the Ocean King Temple/Tower of Spirits of PH/SS respectfully, isn't made mandatory yet provides players a difficult and puzzling terrain to explore and loot at any given point in the game.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

I agree there's a lot of bloom, but I always hate the rap that gets.  If they can do what they did with TP, I think it'll add a great deal of atmosphere.

Until recently even though I had played Ocarina of Time when it was released I never cared much for Zelda, that was until I played Wind Waker in 2011 and now I consider myself a fan.
As much as I don't have plans to get a Wii U until there's a significant price drop I'm more than happy to see this, especially as beautiful as it looks.

Now there's Bayonetta 2 and this Wind Waker that make me want to get a Wii U.

I was thinking that given how the controller for the Wii U is The Wind Waker can benefit greatly from it.

You could finally use the Tingle Tuner without the need of an another system and hunting for treasure in the ocean can be a more interesting affair, especially for when you have to get the Triforce charts.

I'm hoping they'll go the same way as the other Wii re-releases (Mario/Kirby), with a nice packaging, artbook and soundtrack! ^^
I have fury!

Or, god willing, they can just get rid of the whole Triforce chart sequence entirely because it made me hate Tingle for all eternity. Or at the very least, remove the absurd rupee cost. FUCK YOU TINGLE!
