Nintendo Australia confirmed earlier today that there are currently no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD Wii U Bundle or Limited Edition version. The game is due to release in Australia on 5th October, but will — for the moment at least — only be available in a standard edition.

The console bundle, which includes a black Deluxe Wii U console; a GamePad adorned with a gold Hylian crest, lettering and symbols; and digital versions of both the game and Hyrule Historia is set to release in North America on 20th September and 4th October in Europe. The limited edition includes an exclusive, bundled-in Ganondorf figurine if ordered from GameStop (US) or GAME (UK).

The situation is a far cry from earlier releases in the franchise for Australia. Long-time Legend of Zelda fans may recall that the country was previously the only PAL region to receive The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Collector's Edition when it launched in 1998.

It's important to bear in mind that 5th October is still more than a month away, and Nintendo Australia's plans could change during that time. If we hear something before then, we'll be sure to let you know.
