The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker is to many the best 3D Zelda game ever made. It may not be as dense as Ocarina of Time or Twilight Princess, but it has a personality that no other Zelda game has yet to capture. Now it’s back in HD and ready for another go.

In the latest trailer for The Wind Waker HD, Nintendo UK reminds us why the simple story of a boy looking for his sister is still one of the best Zelda stories ever told. Sure, the game eventually progresses into an epic tale where the world’s at stake, but it’s the peaceful moments – like Link going back to see his grandmother for some soup – that really matter.

Unfortunately, the below trailer doesn’t really capitalize on these quiet moments. It instead focuses on the pirates, a battle with the Helmaroc and lots of sailing. Not that that’s a problem mind you, but it wouldn’t hurt to show some of the quieter moments alongside the epic hero bits.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD launches October 4 exclusively for the Wii U. You can get a special edition at GameStop that includes a Ganon figurine, or you can get it early on September 20 through either the eShop or a special Wii U bundle.

    Do some people really consider it the best 3D Zelda game? I’m really surprised by that. I know best games are opinions, but I thought OoT was statistically rated the best video game of all time in general. OoT has a 99 on Metacritic and Wind Waker has a 96(current “top ranking” only has new consoles and highest is a 98). Guiness has it as the best game ever made.
