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

Download release comes early on 20th September

Update:

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?
