A Classic Comes to Life

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker comes to life as never before on the Wii U console with gorgeous HD graphics and enhanced game features.

You will guide Link, our hero, as he sails the Great Sea in search of his kidnapped sister, fights fearsome enemies, and seeks the legendary Triforce.

Adventure on the Great Sea

Cruise across the Great Sea with King of Red Lions, the wisest - and most talkative - of boats, propelled by a magical sail.

Discover lost islands and hidden secrets, and find treasure charts to haul up sunken riches.

Tetra and the Pirates

Tetra is the leader of a band of pirates who roam the Great Sea. These salty scalawags help Link throughout his journey.


Freed from an eternal prison, Ganondorf searches for a young girl who may hold the power to change the world.

Monstrous Foes

The hungry, slithering Morgera burrows in the sand. The gargantuan Helmaroc King swoops from the skies. The relentless guardian Gohdan tests your courage.

New Features

Remastered HD Brilliance

As the definitive version of the game, you will experience The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD in gorgeous, fully remastered 1080p graphics. Enjoy high-definition cell-shaded brilliance on your TV or entirely on the Wii U GamePad controller.

Streamlined Interface

The streamlined interface lets you easily manage your inventory - simply slide an item onto any button. Instantly view maps and zoom in on the GamePad controller's touch screen.

Sail with the Wind

Enjoy a breezy cruise with the original sail, or switch to the brand-new Swift Sail that lets you gather the wind and speed across the waves.

Message in a Bottle

With the new Tingle Bottle feature, you can connect* with others over Miiverse. Comments or screenshots others have posted on Miiverse may wash up on the shore or appear in other locations, tucked into bottles.

Whenever you wish, move around the world in first-person mode, using the GamePad gyroscope to look around you and aim your bow, hookshot, Picto Box, or telescope.

You can store more pictographs with your improved Picto Box - handy for creating figurines - and share them with other players on Miiverse. Your pictures, game tips, and messages may also appear in another player's game!

A Challenge Worthy of a Hero

Take the adventure to new heights with Hero Mode, available from the moment you start the game. In this mode, you only regain health when you earn a new heart piece or container, use a red potion, or visit a fairy fountain. Also, your enemies do double the damage. So, hero, do you have the courage to meet this challenge?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WindWaker illustriously reborn, Speechless. This is the best day of my life for having even witnessed the beauty and share amazingness of my favorite childhood game in glorious 1080p HD. it looks stunning, the visuals are tear inducing, the memories it evokes. The fun, the joy of the endless amazement of windwaker will last a life time. This remake is a testament to the greatness of it. And it really is a modern marvel. I am blessed. Thank you Nintendo. Thank you very much :')

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best LoZ Game Ever Created I am a Nintendo fanatic and have been a fan of the company since my first system, the SNES. One thing that all Legend of Zelda titles should have is an open world, which is what every installment in the main series (and Tingle's spin-off) has been able to produce for us. That being said, while in most of the installments the areas you traversed were land, in this game the only land you find is on the islands you sail to. The one downside of this fact is that it feels as if there isn't as much open space and a lot of empty waters. It would seem that way at first, but then the dungeons come into play. Each and every dungeon in this game is fantastic and visually beautiful. The dungeons become harder and harder as the game progresses making the open world seem "open". Another element every main line Zelda game needs is a plethora of usable items and multiple ways to use them which this installment does well. The selling point to me, and many others is the art style. While many prefer the dark and realistic 3D Zelda titles over all others, this game has a beauty that can, and should, only be realized in the form of a Zelda game. This HD remake is the optimal way to play Wind Waker as it has been up-scaled for the current generation of gaming and fine-tunes some of the more tedious aspects of the original GameCube version. If you are a true Zelda fan and own a Wii U, you absolutely owe it to yourself to buy this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful, Bright, and Vibrant I finally bought this game for my Wii-U and boy am I having a blast. After about 2 days of playing I can say this is a wonderful game. The world and graphics are bright and vibrant and just makes you love looking around. I personally love the cartoon look that Link has. The story is well written and I have had a ton of fun with as far as I have made it. I can see myself playing this game more than once. Oh, how can I forget about the music, it is beautiful. Definitely buy this game if you are needing a good rpg experience on the Wii-U.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A great classic, modernized This game is one of the best Zelda games ever created, at first when it was announced people were on the fence about it because the graphics looked to cartoony. But after when this game came out it was a masterpiece. Years later and its been redone in HD with a lighting system that is much better than the original. there is also a new hero mode where the game is basically harder. This game also fixes problems from the original version for example sailing in the original version got quite boring but now you can upgrade your sail to 2x the speed to travel the waters and continue on your adventure faster. there is also gyro controls now for some items like the grapple and bow. If you had the original windwaker then you should try out this new HD modernized version, and if you have never played windwaker, whenever you have the time definitely pick up this amazing game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another 10/10 for Nintendo I'm getting tired of giving games 10/10 on reviews but it's so hard to when I own all these amazing Nintendo games. The Wind Waker redefined art in video games. It showed that your game can look bubbly and light like the good old days but still have powerful gameplay that's new in every aspect. If you're already into the Zelda games and haven't played this, you've missed one of the top 3 big hits. If you haven't played the Zelda games I'd suggest you get to it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best! Let me start of by saying i have been playing The Legend of Zelda games since the very first one on NES in 1986! I know A LOT about the series and i've played every one of them. The Wind Waker is easily my favorite in the series! The cell shaded graphics looked amazing then and they still look amazing now over a DECADE later! The controls are perfect, the music... omg the music is ear candy 100%! Some of the best music ever in a video game! The game just pops with style and oozes color! The new lighting looks great and the dungeons are some of the best in the series. Some people didn't like all of the sailing so Nintendo added a new sail that is not only faster than the original but also doesn't require you to change the wind with the wind waker wand! The old quest to recover tingles 7 charts has been nerfed down to 3 charts which is a much welcome change! Buy this game! Play it, love it, CHERISH IT! :D
