The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD for Wii U is available now even though it isn’t in stores yet. Nintendo is showing off many of the improvements it made in a new trailer to help make people aware that they can buy the game now.

Wind Waker HD launched this morning on Nintendo’s eShop digital-distribution store. The high-definition update is available for $50. It will also launch at that price on disc. The physical version will hit retailers Oct. 4.
