Here in the UK today is the first birthday of Nintendo’s Wii U. Apparently not many people have bought the console, and I’ve heard this said like it’s a reason why not to own one. Personally, I’m glad that it hasn’t sold well, all the best consoles didn’t. I’d like to think that one day the Wii U will be remembered alongside the Dreamcast, GameCube and SEGA Saturn as one of the best videogame consoles ever made, so today let’s celebrate its first year of turmoil together.
There’s certainly a case for arguing that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is the best Zelda game ever made. Back in 2003 it was a bit of a dark horse for the series, although personally I never really understood why people had a problem with the game’s unique art direction. Still, everyone seemed to get over it, and the game has aged unbelievably well. This HD remake only makes a few small tweaks, but helps perfect an already brilliant experience that is just as enjoyable today as it was 10 years ago.
