In a recent Polygon interview with Eiji Aonuma - it was said that the team test out 3 games in HD. The games that got tested were The Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword.

"When we were thinking about the new Zelda for Wii U, which is something we're actually working on, we needed to experiment with a variety of graphic styles and it was part of that process we took some existing Zelda games and made them HD just to see what would happen," he said. "In doing so we realized that the Wind Waker graphic style, the art style, really represented well on the Wii U given the graphic capabilities of the new system. It really brought that world to life."

When Aonuma was questioned about if Skyward Sword or Twilight Princess would get an HD remake he said:

"I can't say that the possibility is zero that those will be made into HD, but right now I need to work on the next installation in the series so I don't have the bandwidth to do that right now," he said. "But maybe it will happen if someone else does it."
