Pre-Order The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker For Wii U

By Kevin McMinn On Feb 03 2013 04:21 PM

Amazon.com and GameStop are now accepting pre-orders for the Wii U version of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. While unconfirmed, but highly likely, the listed prices are $59.99. Additionally, no official box art has been released yet. The beautifully re-mastered Wii U version of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker will feature rich high-definition graphics and, hopefully, a more streamlined sailing adventure.

Wind Waker Wii U is scheduled to be released this Fall.

I don't have an wiiU but I have an gamecube whit the wind waker and broken controler! so no wind waker for me :-(
It is interesting how these companies offer pre-orders so early. I am not complaining but I do think it is funny. I can't wait for more info on this game and the changes that were made.

Yea no kidding.  Fall, you mean in almost a year?  I would completely forget that I even ordered it.
im still trying to figure how the sailing would be more "streamline". I didn't have a problem with the first one. There was a lot of stuff that took place in the sea so if the sailing didn't occur as originally planned, than that means the the order in which the game could be completed is completely changed.

but... I still can't wait. This was my all time favorite Zelda... that was until Skyward Sword came out anyway... which I've been aching to play like mad.

Take your pick...
streamlined  past participle, past tense of stream·line (Verb)

Verb
  • Design or provide with a form that presents very little resistance to a flow of air or water, increasing speed and ease of movement.
  • Make (an organization or system) more efficient and effective by employing faster or simpler working methods.
A must have!

LOL Thank you spanky helper-ton.

bernoullis principle applies to that first one.... do me a favor and prove it.

put that in your pipe and smoke it.

I don't study fluid dynamics, nor do I have the interest or time to study something outside of my current program of study. I simply elaborated on this statement that you made in your initial post.

Streamlined is a relatively simple term that I used to compliment the idea of sailing throughout the game. I didn't know of any other way to explain what I meant, other than to provide a few basic definitions. While I already knew what the term meant, I still made the extra effort to provide exact definitions in the event you still didn't understand. You seem to have taken that as negative criticism. Either that, or you're simply being insecure about seeing textbook definitions as a response to your inquiry. Either way, I didn't intend to come off as terse or insulting.
Personally, I would prefer the sailing not be altered too much, if it's changed at all. Hopefully not. Wind Waker's one of the few games that I'm aware of that satifies my desire for a decent sailing game, just like how Twilight Princess offers an extremely enjoyable fishing aspect that not many other games can challenge, even when it's the main focus. That said, given that this game was one of Nintendo's only experiences with a proper deadline (something that caused it to suffer as a result, cutting incomplete content), I'm hoping that they'll add in that extra content to provide us with the game Miyamoto initially wanted to create.

I'm fully aware of what streamline means. I was being a smart ass in response to you posting the actual definition of streamline. I posted the "prove the bernoulli's equation" BECAUSE I was being a smart ass. I wasn't questioning your interpretation of streamlined gameplay, I was simply wondering HOW it can be more streamlined without affecting gameplay. The game is focused around sailing... if the sailing wasn't there, whats left of the game besides a few dungeons. You don't have much of a sense of humor do you?

for the record, I do study fluid dynamics. Its part of my engineering studies.

Hmm...it's so hard to tell when you're being a smart ass and when you're being serious. Now that you've filled my glass with enlightenment though...

Yes, yes, you've made all of us aware of how intelligent you are when you questioned why Pandora's Tower wasn't being released for Wii U instead of Wii. Or wait...you were being a smart ass for that too, right? ^.^

@ Kevin... no I haven't read about it yet... between Fluid Dynamics and Differential Equations I don't feel like doing a lot of reading in the evening. Just want to "vegg" out on the couch and play games.... lately I've been playing Nano Assualt Neo.

I'm pretty good at playing this game, if that's the ship you wish to sail. :P
(I don't see it solving anything worthy, though.)
no it doesn't solve anything worthy... not even sure what the problem is to solve. regarding the "intelligence" comment, I didn't know I was boasting about my "intelligence". You asked a question about if I read some book... I answered. If I simply said I read all day long, then inevitably someone would have asked what are you reading. I killed two birds with one stone.

If thats what you thought I was doing than I apologize. I usually don't intend on offending anyone unless you're just being stupid and I almost always never sugar coat anything.

I wasn't questioning your use of the language you chose to use. I fully comprehend what you are trying to say in your articles. I was questioning the developers use of their language. plain and simple.

therefore.... since I seemingly can't make a simple comment regarding one of my favorite zelda games without receiving a rebuttal, I will just stop commenting on any future threads.
Perhaps this was all just a big misunderstanding between us then?

What specific language were you questioning from the developers?
