Here’s how The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U compares to the original

Let's go back to Hyrule!

With the March 4th release date for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U getting closer by the minute, Nintendo has decided that its time to release a side-by-side comparison of just how much the remastered version has altered the game.

Of course, the graphics aren't the only thing that have changed with the HD remaster of the GameCube game.

In addition to the visual changes, Nintendo has added a new item in the game called "Ghost Lantern" and added a "Hero Mode" that essentially introduced a hard mode mode to the game. You can read more on the addition here.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD will release for Wii U on March 4, 2016. As a reminder, all physical versions of the game will include a Wolf Link amiibo figure that grants access to the challenging Cave of Shadows.
