Template:Future game Template:Game

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a Wii U remake of the Nintendo GameCube and Wii game, Twilight Princess. It was officially announced via a Nintendo Direct webcast on November 12, 2015 and will be released on March 4, 2016.[1] It is the second remaster of a Zelda title on the Wii U following The Wind Waker HD. This remake uses the world orientation of the GameCube version, which was reversed on the Wii version. A bundle set containing the Wolf Link amiibo will also be released.

The game features graphical upgrades from the original version and runs at a higher resolution. It also features some gameplay changes, which Nintendo will announce in the future.

Changes and Additions

Graphics

Twilight Princess HD features up-rendered and touched up graphics from the original game, giving the game a cleaner and higher-definition look. As opposed to the 480 resolution of the original version, Twilight Princess HD uses the 1080p resolution that is standard on Wii U. This provides for six times the number of pixels, resulting in additional clarity, especially for faraway objects and precise aiming. Several textures in the game are touched up with added details, with notable examples including Link's hair, Zant's armor, and several background textures. These textures look less "muddy" and blurred than in the original. The game also sports brighter lighting.[2]

Twilight Princess HD is not a complete graphical remake, with much of its character models and geometry (for instance, the cliff of Hyrule Field shown in the opening sequence) retaining its somewhat primitive design.

amiibo Support

Twilight Princess HD will be compatible with the Wolf Link amiibo, along with the Super Smash Bros. series of Zelda amiibo, including Link's, Zelda's, Ganondorf's, Sheik's and Toon Link's amiibos. The Wolf Link amiibo will be able to read and save data from Twilight Princess HD, and transfer it over to The Legend of Zelda for the Wii U.[1] It is currently unknown what kind of features these amiibo figures will have in the two games.

Limited Editions

In North America, Europe and Japan, a limited edition bundle box set will be released, which will come packaged with the Wolf Link amiibo for use in the game. A special pre-order edition will also include a CD of the game's original soundtrack.[1] In Europe, the soundtrack is included in the bundle itself.
