Now that we know The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will be available in the U.S. on October 4, we just have to wait a little over a month until Wii U owners can relive the classic Legend of Zelda game in all of its HD glory. If you consider yourself a true Zelda fan, you probably have already beaten The Wind Waker and are expecting to breeze through this game as well. Unfortunately, the game won’t be as easy as you think it’ll be if you play it on “Hero Mode.”
Nintendo has upped the difficulty of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD by including Hero Mode, which is a nicer way of saying hard mode. If you decide to take Nintendo up on their challenge, you’ll take double the amount of damage you normally would take when an enemy attacks Link, and you also won’t receive any recovery hearts through cutting down grass, breaking pots, or any other method. We’re not entirely sure if this also means you won’t be be able to recover your damage when you defeat a boss, but we guess we’ll have to just wait and see for ourselves in October.
