So is Twilight Princess being listed as an HD remake or a Virtual Console port

HappyMaskSalesman1129d ago

The Nintendo Update Services has it listed as "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD"

If it really is an hd remake, I would think Nintendo would be hyping it, like they did with WWHD. So in my mind I do not think, if this HD release is real, it is not a fully realized remake like WWHD.

@GotHDGame Did it ever occur that maybe they're not ready to announce it?

BrandanT1129d ago

Still no GameCube games.
What a shame... I was really hoping for them to be on there.

HappyMaskSalesman1129d ago

Yeah, I don't expect digital Gamecube games on Wii U, especially at this point. However, I can definitely see them appearing on the next console.

superchiller1128d ago

Unfortunately the Wii U probably isn't powerful enough to emulate GameCube games, which is why none have come available on the VC.

Nevers0ft1128d ago

That's the weird part about it - no emulation needed. Because the Wii U has Wii BC, it already has all the hardware it needs to run GCN games.

Concertoine1128d ago

You can play GC games on the wii u, if you hack it.

We don't talk about that first game. It doesn't exist.

Why? It was a perfectly good game in the series. Yes, it didn't live up to the stellar achievements of others in the canon, but judged alone, a good game. It was Corruption which for me was the worse Metroid. Yes (again), a very, very good game judged alone, but the isolation which has become standard for the series, gone. Super Metroid and Prime are still the leaders and arguably both vying for best game of all time.

Super Metroid and metroid Fusion.

The reason the game is bad is that the story has horribly paced and written. The portrayal of Samus made her weak. Her monologue in the whole game is boring and full... It's not that the gameplay was bad, I actually enjoy how the game plays, but that's why the game is shunned in the eyes of Metroid enthusiasts...

That game was All my Children.
What about the baby?

for the first 30minutes. I thought this was supposed to be Samus and Metroid not a CW show.

This game is a sequel to what I hold dearly as one of the best metroid games (Fusion), and they turned her into the most vulnerable depressive soap opera character possible imo. To me the game is a huge disgrace to the entire series that Retro helped stabilize with Prime.

Thats a shame because you apparently missed out on a very entertaining metroid game.

deafdani1127d ago

Speak for yourself. I have enjoyed it immensely, despite its narrative flaws. Its pros outweighed its cons.

MetroidFREAK211128d ago

Ewww Metroid Other M... Thought we erased that game from our memories?

silkrevolver1128d ago

I think Twilight Princess HD will release before Zelda U if this is true. Wind Waker HD was a stop-gap title before Zelda U, and that was before its delay. Now that it's coming even later, I think another remake is a no brainer. As long as this doesn't effect the team that's working on Zelda U (which I doubt it is,) then I'm all for it.

TP is one of my favorite games of all time.
