Zelda-themed Wii U hardware appears in The Wind Waker HD 'Hero Mode' clip

A black Wii U GamePad with The Legend of Zelda styling appeared in a trailer highlighting the Hero Mode in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD that was briefly posted (then pulled) by Nintendo earlier today. A mirror of the video, via NeoGAF, was later rehosted on YouTube.

The apparent leak of that Zelda-themed Wii U comes after Destructoid reported earlier this week that a 32 GB Wii U bundle that includes a copy of The Wind Waker HD would be coming to retail for $349.99. The HD remake is expected to come to Wii U this October in North America and Europe.

The Wind Waker HD's special edition Wii U hardware appears to match up aesthetically with another piece of recent Zelda hardware, the Legend of Zelda 25th anniversary Nintendo 3DS bundle released last in 2012.

When contacted for confirmation, Charlie Scibetta, Nintendo of America's senior director of Corporate Communications, told Polygon, "We have nothing to announce at this time."
