first_imgNintendo has been on a roll over the last few years with releases of updated versions of games from The Legend of Zelda series. The latest entry to get the digital spit and polish is Twilight Princess. Nintendo has announced that the HD version of the game will be released on the Wii U on March 4. In addition, more details were revealed as to what makes this game different from the original Wii title besides having prettier graphics.Since this is a Wii U title, Twilight Princess HD will have Gamepad functionality. Players can now access the map, manage their inventory, and even transform into Wolf Link instantly without having to pause the game. The Gamepad can also be used to access Miiverse, where players can decorate their posts with dozens of Twilight Princess inspired Miiverse stamps. The game will also support off-screen gameplay on the Gamepad.A new item called the Ghost Lantern will be useful for completing certain quests in the game. There will also be some in-game adjustments meant to make things a bit easier for players. The amount of Tears of Light that need to be collected has been reduced from 16 to 12, the number of Rupees players can hold has been increased, and Rupees found in treasure chests will no longer return to chests if players’ wallets are full.There will be a new challenging Hero Mode available. In this mode, which can be accessed right from the beginning, players will take twice the normal damage and hearts used to replenish health will not be found. The game will also be mirrored, meaning that the world and dungeons will be reversed. Also, tapping the Ganondorf Amiibo on the Gamepad in Hero Mode will cause Link to take four times the damage.As we reported before, the game will also come with a brand new dungeon called The Twilight Cave. However, the dungeon can only be unlocked by using the Wolf Link Amiibo that comes with the limited edition bundle of the game, or which can be bought separately. The limited edition bundle will also come with an audio CD that contains a selection of songs from the game’s soundtrack.last_img read more
