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?
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.
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.
they can make a great remaster out of this one. This Zelda is decent, much better than the boring WW.
Agreed. That might be the last good console Zelda for me. Zelda Wii U I have hopes for though.
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.
I really hope so.
That'd be fine as long as it was a remaster of the Gamecube version...not the dreadful Wii version.
Remind me, what made it so "dreadful"...
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: http://www.zeldainformer.co...
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.
@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.
@drpepperdude 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.
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.
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 :/
it has more chances to come to Wii U than the new Zelda game that was supposed to be Zelda U
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.
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.
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 :)
I'd pay 20 bucks for that. Right now.
This would be cool especially if the game pad or pro controller are compatible. Would gladly pay $20 for this since a used copy is still around $40 at stores. Worth it in its own right it I am cheap these days.
Seriously, who is this being marketed to? What person owns a WiiU, but never owned a Wii or a GameCube? I suppose there will be die hard TP fans, but I thought remasters were generally made to connect with new customers that might have missed the console generation on which the game originally released. What demographic are they aiming for?
I have no clue why anyone actually believes that this is the reason games are remastered! Just look at the amount of games that came out just a year or 2 ago that have been remastered for XbOne and PS4 already. Are we to assume that no one owned either the PS3 or 360 to have not played some or most of these games? It's easy money, that's why they are being made...
Yo I would buy that s**t day one if it was remastered. Has my favorite soundtrack in the franchise.
I'm still waiting for Majoras Mask...I've played Ocarina of Time back on the Wii but not Majoras Mask. Been waiting for it to come on VC for so long now. If they did Twilight Princess like they did Windwaker HD that would be pretty cool. Have an option for GamePad controls though, I prefer that more than motion controls.
MM for the 3DS is the remaster to pick up if you haven't already. Not just a straight port but the niggles and irksomes of the original released ironed out to perfection...the definitive version.
its probably just a release of the wii version on virtual console, nothing more nothing less. sorry guys
Sadly I think you are correct. Though they did release a remake of Wind Waker, so why not Twilight Princess? They are both GameCube games after all.
It would be really amazing if we find out that Nintendo has secretly been working on this the whole time, since that tech demo was first shown. An HD remake would be far more impressive than just a port of the Wii or GC Twilight Princess. Wind Waker is a much better game on the WiiU and it only took around 10 people 6 months to do that.
One of my favorite Wii U games by far
Yes please! A remaster of this game would be amazing. I hope it's not just a straight port.
I hope so, if only to appease the 'gamers' who have decided the Wii version is such a drag compared with the button mashing Gamecube version. Dont get me wrong, the Gamecube version is the version I bought (and completed) on initial release. Later however I bought the Wii version. The use of the Motion controller was easy and reactive, plus the widescreen format added to the Wii version made everything look more epic.
i hope its inbetween a virtual console version and a new version, it would be good if we got gamecube controls and wii control on the same version
I hope that The Legend of Zelda WiiU gets an enhanced NX version at launch specifically to show the benefits of the new system (without, hopefully, making WiiU owners feel too cheated). If Nintendo are clever enough to keep the price of the WiiU relatively high (as they mostly appear to have been so far) then they can point out in marketing how much more you get with an NX for about the same price as an WiiU. Then the NX has time to concentrate on making and releasing Realistic Mario in Unreal Engine 4 later on its lifespan- I dream but it would gain huge publicity, bigger than Realistic Zelda ever can.
If this isn't a remaster then meh.
Why bother? Save it for the NX.
That would be a gross betrayal to WiiU buyers. It's not like Microsoft moving development of a few series to the Xbox 360 that hadn't even been announced when the original Xbox came out. It's a key series for Nintendo. Nintendo wouldn't do that. Whilst many people might buy an NX to put it in to instead or as well, it still needs to work on the WiiU. Certainly in an ideal world I'd prefer it for Nintendo to concentrate on just making it a superb NX launch title and I hope that an enhanced version is available on NX at or close to launch but it wouldn't be fair on WiiU owners to cancel the WiiU version.
I just wanted Xenoblade Chronicles X. Where is it?!?
i really hope so i skipped over this one because of the wii controls but i think it was on the cube aswell? but id play on the wii u with the pad
No motioncontrol, for goodness sake!
Just put it on The NX, with no motion controls
That would be great. But i was hoping it would be on NX because i intend to get it
Why bother, when you can already play the Wii game on the Wii U?
I own the superior GC version... So no need for this... Plus you can buy the game cheaper disc based than digital...
Seriously Nintendo, where the hell is the new Zelda we've all been waiting for? Stop with all the rereleases already! This goes for all 3 consoles!!!! This gen will be remembered as the generation of rereleases!
I'll definitely buy if its an HD version that uses the pro controller. If its just a the Wii version on the eshop I have no interest in it.
All this talk of the NX is laughable. A console (possibly) nobody knows nothing about albeit its name - again, possibly. Also, if we were to assume the NX is little more than some jumped up medium specced PC - as is the XB1 and PS4 (of which I own said PS4 as well as WiiU - what would suddenly make for that much better games already available for the WiiU? The WiiU has proven uniquely it can offer looks, performance AND gameplay all in one package to rival the competition, so why should ZeldaU be any different?
I just started replaying the Wii version on my Wii U few days ago before i heard this rumor... So if it's just Wii version on eshop i don't care because i already own it.. but if it's a HD Remake i think i'll stop the playthrough and just wait for it.
