Everyone once in a while Nintendo surprises with a cool announcement, and today just happens to be one of those days. During Nintendo’s video directs Eiji Aonuma, producer and designer on the Zelda series, announced that Nintendo has been working on a way to improve the core experience of the Zelda games. One of the many experiments where bringing past game art styles into high definition. Which they began to show various screens from Wind Waker for the GameCube in comparison to what the WiiU could do.

The surprise wasn’t that Nintendo was working on bringing other styles of Zelda to high definition, it was that this fall we would see Wind Waker in HD for WiiU. This remake comes on the 10th anniversary for the game, seeing as how the original title was released back in 2003. Not much is known about the update other than that it will feature GamePad support, off screen play, as well as MiiVerse connectivity.
