It’s a decade since the original Wind Waker blew onto Gamecube, and promptly whipped up an incredible storm by delivering the best game of 2003.

It’s a decade since the original Wind Waker blew onto Gamecube, and promptly whipped up an incredible storm by delivering the best game of 2003.

Fast-forward to now and console technology’s come on in leaps and bounds, but this Zelda classic still more than holds its own. Remastered and presented in 1080p graphics, gamers can experience this awesome HD cell-shaded fantasy adventure on their TVs or entirely on the Wii U GamePad controller.

New game features, such as the Swift Sail that lets you gather the wind and speed across the waves, or the Tingle Bottle that brings connectivity with others over Miiverse, further enhance one of Zelda’s finest outings.

Aside from these minor tinkerings, the game remains largely untouched from the original.

It’s testament to Nintendo’s game craftsmanship that the current generation of consoles and triple-A titles will need to view The Wind Waker as a serious competitor’s for 2013’s gamers’ hard-earned cash.
