The physical disc-based version of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, which releases for Wii U tomorrow, will come packaged with "distinctive" gold foil, Nintendo confirmed today. Available for $49.99, the disc represents another option for consumers who can also download the game digitally from the Nintendo eShop for the same price. So, do you want convenience or awesome packaging?
If you don't even have a Wii U, there's another option — the $299 limited-edition bundle which comes with a black Deluxe Wii U console; a GamePad controller adorned with the gold Hyrule crest and other symbols; a download code for the digital Hyrule Historia; a book that details the chronology, history, and artwork of The Legend of Zelda series; and a code to download the actual game.
“For more than 10 years, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker has remained a standout entry in one of the most beloved series of all time with its distinctive graphics, fun adventures and charming story,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “This HD version and Wii U bundle are cornerstones of Nintendo’s season of value and variety. These characters and experiences are exclusive to Nintendo systems, and a must-have for video game fans of all kind.”
