How did Nintendo figure out this news?

Product manager Roger Langford discovered that Wind Waker HD will be one of the first Zelda games for the new generation of gamers. Many might know about the past games, but they won’t have first-hand experience with them. With this news, Nintendo figured it would be the “perfect time” for Zelda fans to discover the Wii U. With the remake of Wind Waker, Nintendo is hoping the title will match up to the success that Ocarina of Time received on the 3DS.

A great feature that will help sell Wii U consoles is the Wind Waker edition of the Wii U. Many people enjoy these collector editions of consoles, and the Zelda games are very popular. Featured in the Wind Waker edition of the Wii U is a digital copy of Wind Waker HD, and a GamePad decorated in Hylian symbols and script. For that edition it costs $299. For those gamers who already own a Wii U they may purchase a physical copy of Wind Waker HD on October 4th.
