If you’ve been counting down the days until The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD’s release on October 4, you may want to consider clearing out some hard drive space on your Wii U as Nintendo announced they will be releasing the game early through their eShop starting on September 20.
Alternatively, if you currently don’t own a Wii U and have been waiting until the release of Wind Waker HD to pick one up, NIntendo has got you covered as they are making a limited-edition bundle available in honor of the games’ release. The limited-edition bundle will include a black Deluxe Wii U console, a GamePad controller which has been adorned with a gold Hyrule crest and symbols from the game, and download codes for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD as well as Hyrule Historia, which is a digital book that details the chronology and history from The Legend of Zelda series while also showing off artwork from the game.
If neither of these sound at all interesting to you and you’d prefer to just pick up the physical copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, then by all means, wait until October 4. While you’re waiting, a good majority of Wii U owners will probably have beaten the game a couple of times by the time you receive your retail copy of the game.
