Call me crazy, but The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD is one of the games I’m most looking forward to this year. Wind Waker has always had a timeless art style, and I can’t wait to play it in HD. Now we’ve learned that Wind Waker has a new Hero mode available in the game, to challenge those of us who’ve played the game multiple times and want an additional challenge.
In Hero Mode enemies do double damage — fair enough, that makes things pretty difficult — but the real humdinger is this: you won’t be able to find hearts in the wild. The only way you can recuperate health is to find fairys or use red potions.
COME ON! Give me a break Nintendo. I’ll never be able to handle that! This is Zelda, not Dark Souls. Jeeesus.
