As was rumored, Nintendo kicked off today’s Nintendo Direct broadcast by announcing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, a high-definition version of the Wii/GameCube classic.
Unlike the previous Zelda remake for Wii U, The Wind Waker HD, Twilight Princess HD is being handled by Tantalus Media, who teased that it was working on a “triple-A next-gen port” earlier this year. The Wii U edition looks to be based on the GameCube version of Twilight Princess, and will be compatible with a new Wolf Link Amiibo (though Nintendo has yet to specify its function within the game). Gamers will also be able to use any of the five existing Zelda Super Smash Bros. Amiibo with the title.
Twilight Princess HD will be releasing in North America on March 4, 2016. As 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, Nintendo has reiterated that the next Zelda title will still be heading to Wii U and will be launching later that year. Nintendo has said that some of the data saved on the Wolf Link Amiibo in Twilight Princess HD can be carried over into the new game, giving Zelda fans an incentive to play through both epic adventures!
