Zelda: Twilight Princess HD Story Trailer Rather Redundant

ZeldaTwilightPrincessHD-Trailer-1

ZeldaTwilightPrincessHD-Trailer-3

Nintendo has revealed the newest trailer for their upcoming Zelda: Twilight Princess HD remaster, milking yet another beloved Zelda classic for all it is worth, but bound to have the more mindlessly dedicated fans blindly overjoyed regardless.

The trailer, retelling a tale that those who have played the game are already familiar with:

The remaster does at least offer buyers a new dungeon – though only accessible if the player purchases the Wolf Link Amiibo; The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will make its twilight descent on March 4th for the Wii U, with Japan to obtain their version on March 10th.

    I was thinking of getting this...until they put the new content behind an Amiibo paywall. Really? I'm so sick of these things. I just want to play games, not to be strong-armed into buying other items to get what *should have been in the original game*. There's no reason the only new content requires an Amiibo.

    Remember the days when you got a full game just by buying the game? Nintendo doesn't.

    You only need to use the Amiibo once according to some people, that may be BS rumor but if it's not, Ebay will be flooded with used Amiibos for the game.

    Remember Metroid Prime, were you needed this other Metroid Game for GBA and some kind of link cable to get all the content? Or this card reader for GBA, were you needed to buy those stupid cards to get levels? Or this add-on for the SNES which allowed you to connect to some satellite where you could get content at certain hours for a fee. This shit goes waaaayy back.

    It was only the ugly fusion suit. I bought Fusion and felt pretty much cheated as I discovered this. Luckily the game itself was pretty good.

    Nintendo isn't even hiding their blatant re-releasing of the same games over and over anymore (hey, kids, are you ready to fight ganon again? Ya see, it's different because this time your companion is a hat).

    Well, if it works, it works.

    Ehhh. I'd say the PS4 is even worse with the constant re-releases. How many remasters and HD re-releases have we gotten on the PS4? Way too many.

    This generation is bad in general when it comes to re-releasing last gen games as glorified HD remasters. A lot of creative bankruptcy and sheer laziness this gen. It's disappointing.

    I hate to say it, but this is wrong. Re-releasing has been Nintendo's central strategy for ever now. Even if other people are only doing this recently, I can't think of a time where Nintendo did anything different than they do now. It's just that it's gotten more severe over time because people encourage Nintendo to keep doing it instead of anything new.

    I don't really see why people have a problem with rereleases. I mean, if it's a shitty port job sure but like if people want to buy a rerelease of an older game for the newer console then let them. Who gives a shit. Buying the actual older games often costs more because they're rare so there's really no harm in it.

    There's also the lack of mind boggling graphical improvements over the last gen. I think everyone would have been better off postponing the current generation of gaming for at least a couple of years. Just imagine if this generation was launched with virtual reality.

    It's not a cashgrab if they're improving it. While there are some things they could have done, but haven't. This game will look a lot better on HD screens than the Wii edition. That's enough.

    So, exactly who at the time thought "Wow, this game would be so much better with slightly higher definition textures and a few subtle fixes here and there?"

    I'm betting on nobody.

    This isn't a remake (ff7 remake for example), it's just a lightly touched re-release and it's a blatant cashgrab, among some of the cashiest and grabbiest Nintendo's ever done.

    Nope, not even them. They just buy everything Nintendo releases, because Nintendo's business strategy works, even if it's really lazy.

    When you're in a position like Nintendo's (somehow gained and kept a large, loyal fanbase), you're allowed to be as lazy as possible, because people will defend you no matter how lazy you are.

    You're missing the obvious point that people buy Nintendo because Nintendo genuinely makes good games. Let's ignore the spinoff cashgrab titles and look at the main series Mario, Metroid, Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby etc titles. I doubt you could name one bad game there.

    All the kids that weren't born or were too young when this was released 10 years ago. Then again... the Wii U is backwards compatible to the Wii, is it not?

    Enough? We want new games not the old ones in slightly (!) better grafic. And "better" is pretty discusable. Is it really better if I can see corners in HD when I saw nice round curves in the original?

    Higher resolution is great and all, but I wish they'd do something about those jagged character models. Higher polygon count should be more than possible with the WiiU's processing power. That and make the bosses more difficult, give them a revamp like they did with Majora's Mask 3D.

    Twilight Princess is kind of a Game Cube game. You can play those in true 1080p with Dolphin.

    Twilight Princess was a Gamecube game until Nintendo abandoned the Gamecube, and decided that they needed a Triple A title to release on the Wii at launch. They'll do the same with the next Zelda title watch.

    Chen, the Wii processor is an upgraded version of the Gamecube one. This was why the console was able to run Gamecube games so smoothly. It was basically a Gamecube with a faster clockspeed + better GPU + more system ram.

    I don't know how powerful the NX will be but some rumors suggest it could compete with the PS4/Xbox One, while some suggest it could have more power.

    Part of the reason the Wii U had like no ports was because it was undepowered. If they matched the Xbox One or PS4 the NX would get more games.

    Maybe that was part of the reason, that the Wii is only a glorified GameCube power wise. Let's hope that the NX is at least 4K ready.

    Isn't the skyward sword too dependent on the wii mote for that?

    Clearly you don't own a Wii U. If you did, you'd know you can use the Wii mote on it.

    You act like supporting Nintendo is a bad thing. It's not like the Wii U flopping makes it a bad piece of hardware, the first party releases have been solid. Shame you're too poor to afford one.

    The Wii U is now three years old. It's been dead for two of those years. A Zelda Game at launch and one a couple of years later like they did with the Wii could have prev.... who am I kidding, the Wii U and its stupid tablet controller are doomed anyway.

    I bet the new Zelda is delayed for the NX. And all of the Nintendos franchises are moved to NX too. I expect Mario Kart 9, Mario Party 11, New Mario title, Animal Crossing etc.

    I'm pretty sure the NX is not going to be a "next generation" replacement for the Wii U. The Wii U came out just three years ago, and Nintendo tends to release new consoles on a roughly six year schedule.

    The 3DS, however, is already almost five years old, so I would expect Nintendo to be looking to debut a new portable device relatively soon. Of course, they described the NX as being a "brand new concept" so I wouldn't expect it to just be a "next gen" 3DS either.

    One possibility is that it could be a portable device that can also run games made for the Wii U, so that games made for one could run on the other as well. If it could stream content to a television, it could also act as a refresh of the Wii U system.

    I'm not sure why anyone would expect another Mario Kart on the Wii U though. Nintendo has always released just one Mario Kart game per console, so the Wii U probably won't get a second one, unless perhaps the aforementioned unification of the console and portable device were to occur.

    I imagine this is a Wii-based remake and not a Gamecube-based remake. Therefore, everything will be inverted and there's motion control. No thanks.

    If you watched that trailer, you would see that:
    1. Link is left handed like he should be.
    2. Areas they showed off are oriented like the GameCube version.

    Also, you are supposed to play this with the Gamepad, meaning no motion controls.

    Some uninformed people are saying there's no difference in this game. I say hook up Twilight Princess on a 50 inch screen on the Wii and notice how blurry the game is. Now look at this game and notice how well defined the textures etc are. It's now non blurry.

    Running at a higher resolution on newer hardware is a really questionable justification for defending this game.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Not really no. Clearly there have been some other improvements, but I think the major one is the game looking somewhat respectable now on a larger screen. Of course, that's a matter of taste, but if you want the game to not look like ass on a large hd screen, get the Wii U edition ;)

    Wind Waker> Twilight Princess. Face it, Toon Link is cuter (although Midna is cute too). I hope the new Zelda will be similar to A Link Between Worlds. I liked the idea of the merge concept and being able to explore the dungeons in any order I want.

    Being obsessed with cuteness tends to be a minority with zelda fans.

    Might I recommend any Atlas game to you? Seems to appeal to you type B fans
