Topic: Would you like The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks remade for the Wii U?

Both of them would have the same graphical quality as Wind Waker HD, and perhaps even come on the same disc as a double pack. There would be two ways to play - vertically on Game Pad with both of the DS screens on the same screen, or the main screen on the Game Pad and the map screen on the TV. Perhaps a new control feature could be added so that you could use buttons to control Link too, instead of just using the stylus.

Both games were awarded 9/10 on NintendoLife but both of them look quite rough and dated to play these days IMO.

I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing happens!

Phantom Hourglass was basically Wind Waker again, except it had terrible features like having to go back through that same temple many times. All the unique features it had were re-used again in Spirit Tracks iirc, which was also a much better game. I'd say remake Spirit Tracks if anything, but its not like it's really that old at this point either.

Same graphical quality as Wind Waker HD... played primarily on the Gamepad?

No. Neither game entertained me one bit. From the combat situations to the puzzles, nothing was even remotely challenging, to the point of them feeling more like half-baked fangames than actual Nintendo quality. Zelda games were never really difficult (except for the NES games), but these took the accessibility excuse way too far.

Not really to be honest. Especially not a double pack because imo spirit tracks makes phantom hourglass completely irrelevant. I would much prefer a different HD remake or remaster personally, really surprised that Nintendo hasn't made more considering the success of Wind Waker HD.....

What a terrible idea....

You would have to tear your Gamepad in half to solve that one puzzle in PH. So not worth it!

Just put them on the virtual console.

I second that, Link Between Worlds buried Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks in the deep cold ground where they belong.

I hadn't thought about it but if they use the windwaker hd engine/graphics then it would work well with the game pad. As a person that prefers to game on the TV when I can, I would totally buy these.

Phantom Hourglass was a great game. But would I buy it again? Ehh...

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

The same reason people who played Wind Waker also played Wind Waker HD?

No, but I might get Spirit Tracks if it came out for DS VC.

Actually, no. I probably wouldn't. It was a pretty bad Zelda game.

Definitely not! I enjoyed Phantom Hourglass but a remake with WW graphics would be too similar to WW itself. And Spirit Tracks I consider to be the worst Zelda game.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Maybe, way down the road. I have had enough Zelda with Link Between Worlds, Windwaker HD, and Majora's Mask 3d over the last year or so. I'm holding off for Zelda U.

That is literally the dumbest thing I have ever read on the internet. You won't try the first original console Zelda in years, the first HD Console Zelda game, because you have been burnt out on one original game, and three remakes?

Wow, someone's got a temper. I'm guessing it must be your first day on the internet if that's the dumbest thing you've seen. He's not saying he wont play Zelda Wii U, he's saying he's feeling kind of burnt out with the franchise, and so he's waiting to play Zelda Wii U as his next Zelda game, not playing any more remakes in the meanwhile.

Nice reading comprehension. He said he's holding out for Zelda U not skipping it.

No, it's gonna be on VC at some points and that's fine. They're not good enough or memorable enough Zeldas to really deserve that, especially since we've literally had 4 Zelda remakes (including Four Swords) in the past 4 years.

Never played either, so I'm looking forward to giving them a go on Virtual Console, but I wouldn't ever pay any more than VC prices for them.

I would be fine woth VC releases instead. I enjoyed them so I wouldn't mind getting to play them again. (I enjoyed Hourglass more than Spirit Tracks)

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...
