    So how about that Wind Waker remake?
    For those that don't know, this was announced during the Nintendo Direct yesterday. Apparently, while working out an artstyle for the new WiiU Zelda that's in the works, they went back and remade a bunch of old Zelda areas in HD, inculding some WW ones. I suppose after they did that they just said "Fuck it, let's remake this while we're at it".

    I'm pretty excited about this remake, though I don't think Wind Waker really needs one; thanks to its timeless artstyle it still looks great today.

    Thoughts on this?

    I feel there's plenty of other things to revamp - Wind Waker doesn't quite need a remake in my opinion as well - it's too close to the last console generation. You've summed it up pretty well describing it as "timeless" - I think it's clear it's just another clever ploy by Nintendo to utilize their strongest weapon: Nostalgia. With it, they can tap into our current childhood favourites and empty our wallets faster than a Summer Steam Sale.

    Wind Waker was my favorite Zelda game. I am very excited to see it remade in HD. There are plenty of reasons for me to end up buying a WiiU sometime in the future.
