HD 'remasters' are popular these days, but Nintendo has been painstakingly overhauling its back catalogue for 20 years now - all the way back to 1993's superb Super Mario All-Stars collection. No-one better understands how to modify and refresh a game while preserving its spirit, or add fun features without letting technology get in the way. Though a couple of Wind Waker HD's additions are a bit voguish - Link's Picto Box camera can now take selfies, and you can send messages and photos into other players' games in Tingle Bottles that wash up on their shores - this is a typically sensitive and handsome revision.
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD for Nintendo Wii U is the most notable game in the second wave. Along with improved cel-shaded graphics, the remastered port also features a few gameplay tweaks as well as some new features. The other new Wii U Nintendo Selects now available are Lego City: Undercover and Nintendo Land.
Exploration is one of the key things I love about the game. With the world that seems vast in the Wind Waker HD, players will be spending time scouring through the high seas as they save the world. While on the mission, players will have a boat that will allow them to traverse different islands. In a world as big as in The Wind Waker, players can expect to uncover a lot of secrets if they wish as long as they take time to search every nook and cranny of the game.
