The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is real, launches in March

Wolf Link Amiibo will carry data over to the new Zelda Wii U game.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is real and headed to Wii U on 4th March, 2016.


Unsurprisingly, Zelda's classic GameCube and Wii adventure will now get sharper graphics. But new, as-yet unrevealed gameplay will also be included, and be influenced by Legend of Zelda-themed Amiibo.

There will also be a new Wolf Link Amiibo, a figurine of Link's wolfy form with Midna riding atop his back.

In a new Nintendo Direct presentation, the developer teased that data saved to the Wolf Link Amiibo will be able to carry over to the mysterious upcoming Wii U Zelda game.

Speaking of which, Nintendo reiterated that the game would launch for Wii U at some point in 2016. It has seemingly not slipped to Nintendo's successor console NX - although a dual release similar to Twilight Princess' original launch is still possible.

Finally, DS Zelda games Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass are now available to download via the Wii U Nintendo eShop.
