The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD Gameplay Preview and Impressions

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a week away from its release on Wii U. Zelda fans have waited months, or years for this release and it is looking like it will not disappoint. Upgraded visuals, and refined gameplay elements come together to showcase one of the more unique entries in the thirty year old franchise. I’ve been playing the game quite a bit in preparation for our full review, which will be available early next week. But I wanted to share some initial thoughts, so I sat down with Will and we talked some Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.

You can check out our discussion in the video below. Essentially, Will hasn’t played a Zelda game in years and so I kind of gave the history of the series running up to the release of the original Twilight Princess. The story of how it all came together is almost as interesting as the story contained in the game itself. Involving backlash at an art style that is now revered as one of the best of all time, and grown men crying at the site of a game trailer (I may have been one of them, though I wasn’t quite “grown” at the time).

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was very much a response from Nintendo to their fans, giving them what they thought they wanted. The end product was still fantastic, as nearly all Zelda games are, but there were a few things that really dampened the experience. The Light Bugs, an annoying rupee reminder, and an overly long intro sequence were just the beginning. However, many of these have been retouched in this HD re-release, offering what seems to be the definitive version of this dark adventure.

To hear all about it just check out the video below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments. Also, if you have any questions about The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD I will respond if at all possible.
