Nintendo Confirms Limited Edition Wii U Bundle For The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD

Download release comes early on 20th September


Nintendo UK has confirmed an equivalent bundle, though it is dated for 4th October, rather than the advance 20th September date in North America. A limited edition boxed version of the game will also be available which will include a Ganondorf figurine and a double-sided title sheet. The European bundle offering and the limited edition game box + figurine are pictured at the end of this article.

Just last week we reported that a trailer for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD displayed a gorgeous Limited Edition Wii U that was rumoured to be released alongside the game at launch.

It's time to squash those rumours, as Nintendo of America has announced that it will indeed be offering a new limited edition Wii U bundle, and it'll be available to purchase on 20th September for $299.99. The bundle will include a black Deluxe Wii U console; the GamePad itself will feature gold lettering, a Hyrule crest and symbols that are seen throughout game; a download code for the digital version of Hyrule Historia; last but not least, a code that can be used to download The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD from the Wii U eShop upon opening the bundle.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD will be available for download on the 20th September, while those wanting to pick up a physical copy will have to wait until 4th October. Boxed copies of the game will be enclosed within gold-foil packaging, and both versions of the game will be available for $49.99. To tempt you just a little bit towards a retail copy, GameStop is bundling a Ganondorf figurine for $54.99.

So, who's tempted?
