After the trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD was revealed a month ago, fans have been eagerly awaiting any further news about this Wii U remake. Famitsu’s most recent issue included a four-page spread about the new game but still discussed little about what it might entail. With less than a month until it’s expected release date, this remake looks promising, especially after Wind Waker did the same transition a few years ago.
We do get to finally see the disc art for both North American and European releases. Both designs use similar images but are taking different approaches for the cover.
Check out both the North American and European designs below.
While the Famitsu interview did not reveal much for fans, it did show some small changes may be made from the original Gamecube version. One of the images in the issue shows only 11 tears of light in Lake Hylia when there would normally be 15 at that point in the original.
Another image shows Link holding 2,000 rupees, which is twice the amount that one could hold before. You can take a look at the four pages more closely here.
The game is a remake, and will be following the Gamecube version closely. However, with these change comes the idea that the developers are tweaking not only the graphics but also some parts of the quests. And of course, there are Amiibos to consider – the brand new one released alongside the game, as well as the Amiibo support for previous Zelda characters. We still do not know for sure what the Amiibos will offer to the game, whether it be cosmetic changes only or something more significant.
