See the new tricks in ‘Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’

by John_A

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD lands on the Wii U on March 4th, complete with a lineup of new gameplay treats. The first is a new item, the Ghost Lantern, which lights up when it’s near an evil spirit known as a Poe. The Ghost Lantern should make the game’s Poe soul-seeking quest much easier, Nintendo says in a press release. This is different than the standard Lantern from the original Twilight Princess, which lights the way and wards off nasty beasties throughout the game.

Twilight Princess HD also features Hero Mode, a new difficulty setting that makes Link take double the damage, removes all heart drops and changes how Rupees operate — Link’s wallet will hold more currency, but if he hits his limit and finds more Rupees in a treasure chest, the gems won’t return to that chest any longer. The Wii U Gamepad displays the map and inventory.

The Wolf Link amiibo opens up the Cave of Shadows challenge arena, as we learned in January, and some of the data stored in that figurine will transfer over to the new Legend of Zelda Wii U game set to drop this year.
