Legend of Zelda: HD Wind Waker and Wii-U Zelda In Development

One of the things people have been asking Nintendo to develop for the Wii-U was a Legend of Zelda HD Remake. Today we got the announcement from Nintendo that The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker is in development for an HD Remake for the Wii-U console. On the Facebook page multiple screenshots were showcased to show the updated graphics for the remake. 

The majority of fans had been asking for a remake on the Wii-U for a Zelda game, but they were asking for a different game in the series. Most people had been asking for Nintendo to remake Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask for the new console. Even though this isn't the remake fans had been asking for in particular the response has been very strong with support towards Nintendo. 

Along with this news of the upcoming remake Nintendo also announced that the brand new Legend of Zelda is in development for the Wii-U. In a Nintendo Direct broadcast Eiji Aonuma stated that the Wii-U's entry's mission statement is to "rethink the conventions of Zelda". This includes the linear progression through dungeons and more. Unfortunately Aonuma said that the new Zelda game will take some time to produce and gave no hint as to when Nintendo plans to release the game. On the bright side Nintendo fans can pick up the Wind Waker HD Remake this Fall.
