The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Heading to Wii U?

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess could soon be heading to the Wii U, if a newly discovered eShop listing is anything to go by.

Probably for Triforce Heroes. 4 Swords Adventures would've been cooler and more fitting but we can't do GCN VC can we Nintendo?

DragoonsScaleLegends1162d ago

They are releasing Wii games on the eShop so this will probably be one of them. But the Wii games they add suck because they don't bother to up their resolution to HD but instead runs them at 480p. But I guess that's to be expected when they aren't even emulating them but running them like a native game.

Nintendo your are remastering personally one of my favourite Zelda games of all time so to improvement it

Better overworld is One
Two Streamline the 4 hour opening part
Three include some new dungeons+ Post story content

That's it I suppose.

ShinMaster1162d ago

Don't get your hopes up. Just in case it's just a re-release of the Wii like they have been doing on the eShop.
And if it is remastered, then you'll be more pleasantly surprised.

bouzebbal1162d ago

they can make a great remaster out of this one. This Zelda is decent, much better than the boring WW.

_-EDMIX-_1162d ago

Agreed. That might be the last good console Zelda for me.

Zelda Wii U I have hopes for though.

pivotplease1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

Some more side content and making more use of certain items (the spinner) would be nice. That and give the horse whistle earlier because fast travel makes Epona obsolete by the time you get it. Also...less annoying secret areas that are only home to pointless rupee chests. Increase the difficulty as well since most enemies take a quarter of a heart and potions aren't necessary at all in the game.

Edit: Oh and get rid of the terrible bug hunting parts. Or at least make them optional. Or fun.

Only interested if it's an HD update to the level of Wind Waker HD.

Summons751163d ago

That'd be fine as long as it was a remaster of the Gamecube version...not the dreadful Wii version.

higgins781162d ago

Remind me, what made it so "dreadful"...

DragoonsScaleLegends1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

Motion controls suck unless you're a Wii fanboy, of course you will deny this reality. Though the GameCube version looks worse at least you don't have to swing your controller like a idiot.

Why the Wii version sucks:

Nevers0ft1162d ago

Although I don't agree with drpepperdude's "Motion controls suck unless you're a Wii fanboy" the controls in the Wii version of Twilight Princess were pretty crappy. The original version of the Wii remote simply didn't have the accuracy required for 1:1 controls so Nintendo opted for a rudimentary gesture system instead - it worked, but buttons would've been sooooo much easier.

bass4g1162d ago

@drpepperdude Sure the waggle sword controls weren't much good but then the IR pointer was a much better means of control than the original. Even in the article you posted the only bad thing they could find about the IR pointer was the fact that it's reticule is a fairy. A lot of the items used the pointer so I'd say that's a fair enough reason to prefer the wii version. It's not quite as simple as one version being "better" than the other, they both have strengths and weaknesses.

Bahamut1162d ago


I agree the motion controls in that game weren't very good, but Skyward Sword was fantastic! I couldn't believe how accurate the motion was, I had so much fun with that game. But really, that was one of the only games I played on Wii that fully utilized the controls without feeling like a tacked-on gimmick. Metroid Prime trilogy was pretty good too.

DragoonsScaleLegends1162d ago

Well I guess you don't have to be a Wii fanboy to like motion controls but 90% of motion games would be better with a traditional controller.

_-EDMIX-_1162d ago

The controls where horrid. I played both versions, the Gamecube versions by far is better. That is personally the version I'm also hoping they port and have controller support for. Though I don't have a Wii U and don't plan on getting one any time soon right now, I don't wish for those that have it to have a bad experience like I did with it.

motion controls and that everything is backwards! xD I hated that with a passion, I had the GC version and loved it, then the disc stopped workiong, so I had to buy the Wii version, and didn't like it at all :/

DualWielding1163d ago

it has more chances to come to Wii U than the new Zelda game that was supposed to be Zelda U

Spikeantestor1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

Sadly this is probably true. I could see Nintendo trying to pad out what's left of the Wii U's life with something like a remake of this game. A project they can pass off as a big deal, all the while not putting in nearly the effort they would need to for a whole new game.

AKR1162d ago (Edited 1162d ago )

And your reasoning for this is supported by WHAT proof exactly? Other than the nonsensical speculation about the NX — a system we know NOTHING about.

tinparron1163d ago

I would be perfectly happy waiting for Zelda U if we were to get a straight port of the Gamecube TP.

Icing on the cake would be:
- it got an HD facelift
- the overworld was remastered to be one continuous world (seamless travel between provinces with no white screen loading)

Simple :)

Bahamut1162d ago

I'd pay 20 bucks for that. Right now.
