The ONLY reason I'm buying Twilight Princess HD is because I never played it before.

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - The ONLY reason I'm buying Twilight Princess HD is because I never played it before.

The Twilight Princess HD looks VERY dissapointing when compared to the Gamecube version! and there's almost no difference between the Wii and Wii U graphics UNLESS you really look super closely to them side by side. But if I played Twilight Princess 10 years ago, i wouldn't even touch the HD version.  I heard Twilight Princess is VERY good! and it's the ONLY 3D Zelda game I haven't played yet. Since I'm excited for Zelda U and have lots of time. Why not get the HD version?! AND we don't have to deal with those shitty motion controls either.  So I think it's the PERFECT time to get it. But I STILL criticize Nintendo for just upscalling the game to 1080p and giving it more texture then calling it a "HD" remake. What a joke.

Who called it a remake?



bet: lost

Idk if it's price has fallen, but if you can find the Wii version for $20 I'd just do that honestly. The motion controls aren't Skyward Sword levels of bad, infact using the Bow/Boomerang/Hookshot/etc. is actually better thanks to them.



I already have the Wii version and I'm buying the HD remaster for several reasons:

1- Playing the original in a modern HD TV is just... horrible. The game looks incredibly bad in a modern television. I think this one and Skyward Sword are the games that suffer the most when upscaling to high resolution screens. You may not notice a huge improvement like in Wind Waker HD, but when you have played the original as many times as I have, you really apreciate how beautiful the game looks now.

2- Off TV. Being able to play the game without the TV is a really handy functionality.

3- I love the game (it's not the best Zelda, but is the one that I like to replay the most) and this is a perfect excuse to play it again in all its glory.

4- Being used to de Wii version, this one will be somehow different because of the mirroring and absence of motion controls.

5- Minor, but helpful changes like more rupees, less tears of light to find, hero mode, inventory management through the gamepad... it's not something huge, but it definitely makes things better.

6- I don't care about the "dungeon" that comes with the amiibo, but the Midna and Wolf Link figure itself and the Soundtrack CD are juicy bonus to me as a fan of the series and especially this game.



Its not even a HD remake - its a HD remaster.

Also I finished the GCN version 10 years ago and will be buying this version :)

I'm not saying TPHD looks like Witcher 3 or anything, but compared to the original it does look a lot better. The original looks really blurry. Like extremely muddy. (still a great game though)

Part of the new trailer, the opening and inside the dungeon, looks pretty good actually. It's mainly the trees and ground textures of the overworld that don't look good to me. But still quite a bit better compared to the original.

Edit: I've seen a comparison video and actually the overworld has noticably improved as well (despite not looking amazing or anything.)

I hate to be the guy to start this debate again, but seriously, I thought the controls in Skyward Sword were amazing. And I don't normally like motion controls

If just one single time... just once... a person goes to do something and the player on the screen doesn't do it, it's fail imo. With buttons, that never happens. When I hit the jump button, the player jumps 100% of the time, without fail. With motion controlls, even the very best developed games, there's always going to be hitches and moments where what you do on your couch doesn't happen on the screen and you have to do it again. To me, that's unaccetable and that's why I refused to play it. I mean, when Miyamoto struggles to make his own game work in front of millions of people, you know something isn't right. Nintendo should never have used motion controllers for an IP as legendary as Zelda.



Go for it. I would recommend to play this amazing game to anyone that has not played.



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


the questiion is why haven't you played it... you had like 9 years to play it and you could have played it on 3 generations of consoles..
