The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Bundle Confirmed, New Hero Mode Trailer
For a few days rumors of a The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD Wii U bundle has been floating about the Internet. Nintendo confirmed today that, yes, a bundle pack does exist.
The bundle pack will include a 32GB Wii U, a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD and a Zelda-themed Wii U Gamepad for a suggested retail price of $349.99. The details behind the bundle came to light after Nintendo released a trailer on August 23 for the game which showcased Hero Mode, a higher difficulty mode new to the updated Wind Waker.
Hero Mode can be chosen from the game menu, and doesn’t require the player to complete the game in normal mode first. The mode is more difficult, with enemies dealing higher damage and taking less from Link. There are also no more dropped recovery hearts, meaning health can only be replenished using potions.
