Zelda: The Wind Waker HD is £50 on eShop this week

A tenner more expensive than Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101.

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.
