A Nostalgic Journey with Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U

Title: A Nostalgic Journey with Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U


Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U is a remastered version of the beloved GameCube classic, offering a visually stunning and immersive experience. As a long-time fan of the Zelda franchise, I was excited to dive back into the vibrant world of The Wind Waker and see how it had been enhanced for the Wii U. After spending countless hours exploring the vast seas and uncovering its secrets, I can confidently say that this remastered edition is a must-have for any Zelda enthusiast.

Graphics and Visuals:

One of the most noticeable improvements in The Wind Waker HD is the upgraded graphics. The cel-shaded art style, which was already charming in the original release, has been beautifully enhanced with crisper textures, improved lighting effects, and a higher resolution. The result is a visually stunning game that feels like a living, breathing cartoon. The attention to detail in the character models, environments, and water effects is truly remarkable, making every island and dungeon a joy to explore.

Gameplay and Controls:

The gameplay mechanics in The Wind Waker HD remain faithful to the original, with a few welcome additions. The Wii U GamePad is utilized effectively, providing an intuitive and seamless experience. The touch screen allows for quick access to the map, inventory, and other essential features, eliminating the need to pause the game constantly. The gyroscope feature is also utilized for certain puzzles and aiming mechanics, adding an extra layer of immersion. The combat system is as satisfying as ever, with precise swordplay and a wide variety of weapons and items to utilize.

Story and World Design:

The Wind Waker HD retains the captivating storyline of the original game, following the adventures of Link as he sets out to rescue his sister and defeat the evil Ganondorf. The game's world design is a true masterpiece, with a vast ocean to explore and numerous islands to discover. Each island has its own unique charm and secrets, making the exploration aspect of the game incredibly rewarding. The characters you encounter along the way are memorable and well-developed, adding depth to the overall narrative.

Additional Features:

The Wind Waker HD includes several additional features that enhance the overall experience. The inclusion of the Swift Sail, which allows for faster travel across the sea, is a welcome addition that addresses one of the minor gripes of the original game. The Tingle Bottle feature, which allows players to send messages and screenshots to other players via Miiverse, adds a sense of community and connectivity. The Hero Mode, unlocked after completing the game once, provides an extra challenge for seasoned players.


Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Wii U is a shining example of how a remastered edition should be done. The enhanced graphics, refined gameplay mechanics, and additional features make this version a definitive way to experience the timeless adventure of The Wind Waker. Whether you're a fan of the original or a newcomer to the Zelda franchise, this game is a must-play. With its captivating storyline, breathtaking visuals, and immersive gameplay, it earns a solid five-star rating.
