The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Has More Tricks Up Its Sleeve

Pokemon’s impending anniversary is certainly putting other Nintendo games into perspective. With almost ten years since the original release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the game’s HD release for the Wii U is just around the corner – launching March 4th.

Aside from spanking new visuals, however, the HD release is said to include several new features, a whole new mode and even an optional dungeon. The Gamecube remaster will feature ‘Hero Mode’, which will more closely resemble the original Twilight Princess’ Wii port. In Hero Mode, all enemies will deplete the player’s health with no heart drops to recover. Link is also right-handed in Hero Mode, as he was in the original Wii version.

With the new Wolf Link Amiibo also coming March 4, many of HD’s new features will be explicitly tied to multiple Zelda figures. Tapping Link and Toon Link to the gamepad will replenish Link’s arrow stash, whilst Zelda and Sheik will replenish the hero’s health. Ganondorf – true to form, will make all enemies twice as strong; perfect for those seeking a challenge. Using Ganondorf in Hero Mode will see enemies deal four times the damage.

The new Midna and Wolf Link Amiibo, opens up optional dungeon: The Cave of Shadows, which can only be completed when in Wolf form. Perhaps as expected, the dungeon is tougher than others and comprises enemies that require much more dexterity. Amongst these foes will be the shrieking Shadow Monsters from the Twilight Realm.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will launch for the Wii U on March 4th, alongside the Wolf Link Amiibo.
