|The faster sail will make a huge difference, but a higher difficulty option would please even more players.|
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is scheduled for release later this year, and it boasts some new features. For one, there is an additional sail which will make it possible to travel the seas much faster than in the original GameCube version. Also, the GamePad's touchscreen can be used to manage Link's inventory and view maps, while Miiverse integration will allow players to share messages with one another via the Tingle Bottle. And now, it appears that the game may have something else that Nintendo has not yet announced.
According to online retailer Amazon, Wind Waker HD will feature "a more challenging difficulty level." Seeing as how the Big N has not yet confirmed this, we'll have to take this as a rumor for now. If it is true, it will definitely make veterans that much happier. You can read Amazon's description of the game for yourself via the source link below.
