GameCube re-release The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker is 49.99 / €59.99 on the Wii U eShop this Friday.

It's a full 10 more than other recent Nintendo-published launches such as Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101, each of which arrived costing 39.99.

Launch titles Nintendo Land and New Super Marios Bros. U also cost 49.99 however, as did Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. But all of those are all-new releases, rather than an - admittedly fantastic - HD remaster.

We've asked Nintendo UK for comment on the pricing.

Also available this Friday is the Wii U Karaoke U app - a free download which you then buy time-limited passes for. 1 hour costs 1.79, 24 hours is 4.49, or you can get 30 days of access for 13.49. There's also a free one hour trial available.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
