I want HD!

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD hits the Wii U very soon, and for many it will be a chance to revisit one of the greatest games ever made. However, we've lost count of the number of times we've heard people say things like "how much better can it possibly look in a higher resolution?" or "the GameCube version is HD in my head, anyway."

To make sure you're aware of how much better the Wii U version is going to look, Nintendo of Japan has released a comparison video showing the two editions side-by-side. As you can see, the difference is striking — as Nintendo Life Managing Director Anthony Dickens puts it, it almost feels as if technology has finally caught up with Nintendo's original vision from a decade ago. This is how Wind Waker was meant to be played.
