The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD bundle for the Wii U is helping Nintendo push out consoles due the popularity of the game series and the great perks that come with the package.
The game is a remake of one for Gamecube, which was hugely popular back then, two consoles ago.
For people who never experienced the game before it will be their "first time that they'll discover Wind Waker and we're treating the game as a triple-A new release," product manager Roger Langford told MCV.
The Wind Waker bundle is retailing for $299.99, and includes: a decorated Legend of Zelda inspired Gamepad featuring designs and lettering from the game, a digital download code for The Legend of Zelda Hyrule Historia, a digital download code for the game in the eShop, which will not be available for physical or online purchase until Oct. 4, and a collective Legend of Zelda-themed box.
