Weeks ago, Nintendo announced directly to the world that the GameCube-exclusive title, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, would be returning in high-definition form on the Nintendo Wii U. With only a few screenshots and a launch window to its name, pre-orders from major retailers have already started to surface.
Video game pre-order giants GameStop and Amazon have both opened the give-us-all-your-money floodgates and have set the price of the game at the regular, store-shelf threshold of $59.99. This price is in no way confirmed by Nintendo and may very likely be a placeholder amount until Nintendo unleashes official details on the game. It’s similar to what these companies do with pre-order dates, where they’ll slap a generic 1/1/2014 date on an upcoming game that has no specific release date issued from the publisher.
As it stands, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is slated for launch on the Wii U by the end of 2013, with Fall pinned as the official window of launch. If you want to see the game in somewhat-action, click over to our coverage of the announcement for some glorious screenshots.
I can’t look at them, they’re so gorgeous I might start crying again.
