Bought this bundle for my kids for Christmas and they love it! A classic Zelda game that my oldest loves to figure out. We also bought other games to go with the console that my youngest can play. If you're looking for something for young(er) kids to enjoy, the Wii U is it!
I preordered the Nintendo Wii U Legend of Zelda Deluxe Bundle and received it a couple of days after it's release. I'm a huge gaming fan, especially of the Legend of Zelda series, so when I found out they were releasing the classic Game Cube Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker onto the Wii U (And a limited edition console to go with it), I knew it was the time to get a Wii U.
So far, it's been an awesome console. It has wireless capabilities to connect with other gamers, plays older Wii gamesand even allows you to transfer your data from your old Wii console to the Wii U so you don't lose any of the games you bought on the Nintendo Eshop. Wireless controllers keep cords out of the picture, and with the Wii U tablet, you can play your game while watching Big Bang Theory on your television! Another cool feature is that you can set up the Wii tablet to control your TV, like the channel, volume, and input. There are a lot of different feature that I have yet to explore on the console, but so far it's been great.
As for The Wind Waker, I'm loving the game. It's been updated for the wii u system, but the story is interesting and the game play is pretty good. The style is much different than other zelda games, but it only gives it more charm, I find. It also takes advantage of the Wii U's wireless capabilities, and allows you to send and receive messages from other players as they go along on their quests as well. The only thing I have issues with is sometimes it takes a long time to journey from area to area (which you do on a boat) and the bosses and dungeons are almost too easy, that is if you know what you're supposed to do, and even then it's not really that hard to figure it out if you've never played it before, like me.
All in all, I love the system and will happily use it to replace my older Wii system. There are more and more games coming out for the Wii U so it's a pretty good buy.
