For those of you who have been wondering what makes the combat so special in The Legend of Zelda: Wind Walker HD, then a recent video aims to explain this for you. Not only do you get to watch some great footage, but also superb commentary all about the combat as well.
The video starts in a battle dungeon on the first island you start on, although you will need to unlock this. A fine example of the combat improvements is how your enemies will drop their weapons and you can pick it up and bet them with it, and you can even set it on fire to make it inflict more damage.
There is more combat options on Wind Walker than any 3D Zelda in the past, although this is open to opinion. However, being able to use a grappling hook to take things from enemies means you don’t even have to get too close them.
While watching the video you do see some great combat moves and some of the weapons that are available to you, although there are moments where you see how not to do it, and so it must have been a lapse in concentration while the guys from IGN were chatting away to themselves.
Okay, it is nice to see yet another remake of an old title, but some gamers feel as though this is lazy on the developer’s part. What we really want to see is the release of an all-new Legend of Zelda game for the Wii U.
