On a small island in the Great Sea, a young boy awakens on his birthday with no idea of the adventure that awaits him. When Link’s sister is kidnapped and taken to the Forsaken Fortress, he sets off in pursuit – accompanied by pirate Tetra and her crew. As he’s about to rescue his beloved Aryll, Link is cast into the sea where he encounters the King of Red Lions, a wise boat who speaks of the legendary pearls of the goddesses. Together they sail the Great Sea on a crucial quest to save the world from darkness.
Grasp the Wind Waker, a magical baton with the power to control the wind, and embark on an unforgettable adventure. Tackle dungeons filled with devious puzzles and vicious monsters, and collect powerful items to aid Link in his quest to overthrow Ganondorf.
Originally released for Nintendo GameCube in 2003, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker comes to Wii U with a number of improvements.
