[Original] Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD will launch on October 4th in Europe. The news was made official during today's European Nintendo Direct broadcast.

Sadly, we still don't have a firm release date for North American gamers, but there's reason to believe that it will be sometime in early October as well... or so we hope. After seeing how gorgeous this GameCube classic looks in high definition, it has been awfully hard to remain patient.

Will you be picking up Wind Waker HD when it launches this fall? Do you even own a Wii U to purchase the game in the first place? Let us know by commenting below.
