I just noticed that Zelda Dungeon.net has updated the first four "chapters" (up to Dragon Roost Cavern) of their The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker walkthrough to updated chapters for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD. They've included several their own screenshots of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD from all the earlier portions of the game. See them here.

I was sort of on the fence before, but now that I'm getting a good look at the game, I find it pretty clear. The bloom and diffuse light is out of control and clashes incredibly with geometric style that made the original so beautiful, unique, and effective. I have no problem with adding bloom, diffuse, and reflections, but they need to be done in a subtler way that preserves the geometric style.

I think you always have to reserve judgement until you see the game running on a T.V display,youtube videos never do games justice.

I like the bloom effect and Nintendo have reduced it a little since we first saw the game.

They got hold of the game already?

Totally agree with you there. While it might look okay on Youtube, Super Mario 3D World looks gorgeous in person, and so does Wind Waker HD. I know thanks to the Best Buy Nintendo E3 event this summer.

The game is so close now I can almost touch it.

The review copies are out there,but there's an embargo until the 18th of September and I think people can only post videos around the 1 min or so.

So Nintendo hasn't said anything about the game's price yet huh? I kinda forgot about the eShop deal that's going on, was thinking about getting this digitally too.

So I'm curious Wind Waker is the only Zelda game that I haven't played, I liked the style of Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks but I hated the train and boat aspects of the two game since in my opinion they seemed to make exploration more restrictive since you can really only walk around the small towns, islands and dungeons. Having said that do you think that Wind Walker is something that I'll like or something that I should pass on?

Yeah maybe its more Spirit Tracks that bugged me since you were stuck with just traveling on train tracks. I kept on wanting to jump out and walk around the countryside.

I always liked driving the boat in PH much more than the train in ST. It was almost as magical as exploring the great ocean from the wind waker.

Since the boat followed a preset route, controlling it with the DS's touch screen was fun and easy... The train was too restrictive, and since the world had pretty crowded most the time, everything ended looking a little cheaper... The underwater world was pretty good though.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I feel like if I don't have enough for Pokemon X by the time this comes out I'm going to wait a little while.

Might not be a day 1 purchase for me

Honestly anyone who hasn't played Wind Waker before is in for a real treat, especially since they are fixing its very few problems. Considering how Wind Waker was already a classic despite those issues and it now has a higher difficulty mode, I genuinely wouldn't be surprised if this version is the best Zelda ever. Not even kidding, hope I get it someday...

I disagree.

To be the best Zelda ever, it'd need:

Some sort of boss rush as an option
Some sound of sound test as an option
A Master Quest mode with actual redesigned dungeons
The cut out dungeons and content added back in
Underwater being explorable with the cut 'water boots' item.

And a bunch of other stuff. It's not a bad game (and it's much better in this form than it was on the Gamecube) and is a good game in general... but it's not a perfect game. Needs way more tweaks to be perfect and hence the best Zelda ever.

Eurogamer had a link to a video with the GCN and WiiU versions of WW next to each other.

I think I might actually prefer the GCN version when it comes to visuals - I'll just have to see how obvious the pixelization is now that I've changed to a larger TV than when I got WW. And no, this is not nostalgia speaking either, since I barely played the game when I got it in 2007.

Looks at both... hmmm..

The Draw Distance is nice.. but comparing the two on color.. is kind of like comparing me before and after being washes with bleach.. the stuff is murder on my fur.. and takes all the color out.. yeah that is what it looks like the HD did... I do however like Links Eyes better in HD.. they are more defined.. but everything else.. looks more colorful on the GCN version and as thus better to me..
