Nintendo to release updated version of Legend of Zelda RPG for Wii U this fall; new entry that will "rethink conventions" of Zelda also on the way.

The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker is getting a high-definition remake. Nintendo announced this morning during a presentation that an updated version of the 2003 GameCube role-playing game is due for release on Wii U by this fall. It will boast remastered graphics and GamePad functionality.

In addition, Nintendo today confirmed the existence of the long-rumored Wii U Zelda game.

This game will "rethink the conventions of Zelda," according to producer Eiji Aonuma, and will be a back-to-basics title. Nintendo said it will be some time before it shares additional concrete information about the game.

The most recent Zelda title was 2011's The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, which has sold more than 3.42 million copies.

Interesting. I knew they were making a new Zelda game but did not know Wind Waker was getting a remake. Wind Waker is probably tied with Majora's Mask for my favorite Zelda game. I think the cel-shaded graphics still look good now but in HD? The graphics would look spectacular! Hopefully there will also be new content added other than just the gamepad functionality. This is overused but SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!!

Pardon me, I have to clean the gizz from the wall from the fangasm I had when I saw this.
