From all the people that went blind from looking at the extreme amount of bloom in the new Windwaker Wii U remake.

You should do stand-up.

I'm so excited for this game.

So now you can turn "blind" from bloom? Hmm. I wonder what's next.

It has been awhile since I played Wind Waker. I can't wait to play it again with Much better graphics! I can see the mass ocean now..

i am hopeful they tone down the bloom a bit. i'd like it if the color palette was more similar to the original, with more pastel colors, but i can't say i mind the new look. it's different, but it's still very pretty.

oh and i think the bloom is just from the angle of the shot, other shots aren't as bloomy:

It looks good tbh.

Especially the lighting on the characters is nice.

Whiners gonna whine.

Looks great. :) Was planning to dig out my Gamecube the other day but i think I'll hold off for this now!

Agreed, it still looks pretty but I hope they'll go with a slightly less harsh look, and add a bit more personality. It's feeling a bit generic right now compared to the original Wind Waker. The look reminds me of the Wii Dawn of Discovery, actually. (Which I thought was a cool-looking game, but having WW look like it just makes me confused. Haha.) I do like how the characters are looking, though!

Much better graphics!

If you say so. I still get it and play it but think it looks absolutely awful. The amount of bloom is just disgusting and not to mention they butchered the characters as well. They don't look as cartoony anymore. Now they're Xbox Live avatars.

That's still an outrageous amount of bloom. Look at the background. No close objects are gonna have bloom. It's not the angle of the shot. Check Nintendos Facebook page and look at the others. Every screenshot is blinding.

The bloom is overdone, but it does encapsulate the whole nice, warm island feel that Windfall and many other islands always had. When I saw it it reminded me of tanning on the beach haha.

While I do agree that they could tone it down a bit, I actually kind of like it to an extent. I get what they're trying to do with it at least. I think it's supposed to look like sun glare and it does that well in my opinion.

Somebody please explain bloom to me.

I actually find it looks kind of nice everything looks like its made of clay or something. I also find it kind of ironic how when Wind Waker first came out people were complaining how it was too cartony and now with this remake its not cartoony enough :P

But ya I guess it could use some more cel shading.

Anyways..Bloom what the hell is it?

That is an obnoxious amount of bloom.

you see the fuzzy light on the edge of distant things? that's bloom.

It doesn't look like the cheap bloom on ps3 and 360. On Windwaker it looks like genuine atmospherics. If you notice, it isn't there ALL the time. On ps3 and 360, anytime there was a game with bloom it seemed that it was on everything that was white.

If you like losing your eyesight then I guess. Even Dead Island didn't look half as bad as this. I can't even look at these screenshots without squinting my eyes and wishing I had sunglasses on.

That isn't irony and these are different people with different complaints.
