But wait, how is Nintendo putting a digital copy of Wind Waker HD with a bundle shipping on September 20th when the game itself isn’t scheduled to launch until October? Easy answer: Nintendo has decided to launch an early digital edition of the game to go on sale September 20th on the eShop for all Wii U owners. If you’d rather get your hands on the gold-foiled boxed copy, you’ll have to wait until October 4th for the game’s full retail launch.

Both digital and retail copies of the game will sell for $49.99.
