The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD To Have New Wii U Controls


We’re at Nintendo’s Wii U presentation at E3, where the publisher is talking about a a variety of Wii U games, one of them being The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD.


The Wind Waker HD will have new Wii U controls. You’ll be able to control the wand in the game with the Wii U GamePad touch screen. There’s also a motor that allows the boat in the game to travel more quickly.


We assume that second is one of the features Nintendo added to make exploration more convenient for players, as they hinted at this morning.
