Won't lie, this image/box got me excited.  Apparently on display for a "Summer" showcase innnnnn.... (*drumroll*) Disneyland!

Ooh, I accept the new official "artwork" if it comes out like this.

Wind Waker Upscaled to 1080p

As impressed as I am by the graphical upgrade the game is getting, I can't help but feel that the original really does have some kind of charm that's been lost in the conversion.

It's a bit like how Twilight princess tried to capture everything OoT did, but didn't really live up to expectations. There's a certain special magic in Nintendo games when they try something completely new and original, and I honestly haven't felt that magic in a while now.

Speaking i hated the hell out of Skyward Sword, I'm the type who's willing to take a update/remake of a title I love than taking a chance on something new.

I agree that the cartoon aesthetic came out years aheads of its time with WW, but I have no problem with an upgrade either (even a thousand times better if they actually add stuff to the Wii U edition....which is my hope because it's taking time to make).

Yeah I'm not against the upgrade at all. It'll be fun to revisit the game regardless (if I ever actually buy a Wii U, lol).

I'm curious to see if they'll make good use of the Wii U controller. We have Link to the Past that is using the 3d so wonderfully. It's often sacrilege to tweak old games, but I wouldn't mind a Wind Waker: Master Quest with a bit more variety while sailing for those goddamn triforce pieces.

Yeah, the Triforce pieces ruined the game and made me not want to finish. Just such a silly timesink. Loved the rest of it though, even the sailing. I'd love to see them re-add in those cut dungeons.

Neither did I for that reason.

Everyone that complains about the triforce pieces makes me feel like some kind of freak. I am, quite literally, the only person I know who didn't mind that part of the game at all.

Count me in.

It was only random and tedious, but it wasn't that much of a big part of the game to me.

They increased sailing speed drastically with a new ability.

They also swapped out the Tingle Tuner with the Tingle Bottle.

No mention on a new dungeon or something that addresses the Triforce Hunt.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

IIRC, I remember my system had a "hiccup" and I hit the "edge of the Ocean" like he mentions.  It was quickly fixed, but I guess that makes sense.

I'm glad he admits that Triforce hunting "sucked" (in so many words), but he was vague as to the details to what will now make it less cumbersome (I only HEARD they added a dungeon, but I haven't seen a report...or I missed him saying it completely in that video).


Pardon me, but I SIMPLY MUST add:

BLOOM, BLOOM EFFECTS, BLOOM IS EVERYWHERE!!

I also find it HIIILLLARRIIOUS that it took HD graphics to give Tetra some LIPS!

If they're "fixing" the triforce hunting, there better be a new dungeon or two. That triforce hunting was the only thing that brought the game to a decent length. That and figurine and heart piece collecting.

I'm more pumped for the new 3DS entry.  Even if it's based on the old world map (i think), I'm happy to return to the overhead feel that lttp had.  The whole turn into a moving 2d painting on the wall thing looks like it can get you pretty much anywhere, but I'm sure they'll have ways to limit that.

Nevermind fixing the Triforce hunting, they're speeding up the sailing in general. Of course, they're making it an unlockable ability later on in the game but at least it'll make late and end game exploration much easier once it's time to go island hopping.
