Pre-orders for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD are available for $49.99 at retail website Amazon, as spotted by GamerDeals.

The game, slated to hit Wii U this October, is also available to pre-order for $49.96 at Walmart's website. Elsewhere players can reserve a copy for $59.99 at retailers including Best Buy, GameStop and Target.

In July, Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto said the company's decision to update The Wind Waker for Wii U was because they felt the console breathed new life into the 11-year-old game's graphics.

"When we brought the cartoon shading of the original Wind Waker over and were testing it on Wii U to take a look at it, we really felt that, visually, it brought the game to life in ways that just weren't there on the GameCube," he said. "Particularly with the way that you see the air and the wind in the game as you play with that. It really breathed new life into the project and we wanted to show that to the viewers."
