Nintendo’s set to release a HD remake for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess on the Wii U this year. That means us writers and fans have something to look forward to when it comes to the adventures of Link.
That also means we’re in for some comparison videos and screenshots. Here we have one done up by the folks at GameXplain. They put nearly two minutes of footage for each game side-by-side and let it roll.
And, who woulda thunk, the HD version looks better. The upgrade isn’t as wonderful as what we had with Wind Waker, though. That’s the nature of Wind Waker‘s art design, as far as I’m concerned. That cel-shaded look was timeless, and bringing it into HD just made it crisper, more vivid and in wide screen.
Twilight Princess HD looks better, no doubt about that. It’s just that Wind Waker was such a gorgeous game that other efforts pale in comparison.
Twilight Princess HD will hit the Wii U on March 4, 2016.
