Wind Waker Remake to Debut at Premium Price?

Nintendo of America is set to release an HD remake of Gamecube classic Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker later this year. The news was well-met by fans, and not an unsurprising move. Nintendo recently released a slew of titles remade for Wii from various IPs that were updated to include motion controls. These games were also sold at a lower price point, around $40.

A recent Amazon posting by Nintendo themselves indicates that the new Wind Waker remake will command a premium price: $60. Fans of the game have undoubtedly played the original to completion many times, and this price may raise more eyebrows than revenue.
