Now presented in beautiful HD quality, the 2006 loved classic from the Gamecube, Twilight Princess is given a makeover without losing any of the original charm.  It has been released as a special edition and all of you who are big fans of Amiibo will be thrilled to learn that it comes with Midna and Wolf Link, unlocking special content in the game! 

The game has a much darker feel to it, almost as if the game has grown with its audience and now takes on a more serious format, but somehow remaining the same game we all know and loved. Filled with nine dungeons, Link can travel on foot through, each one connected to a larger over world.  If Link get weary though Epona or teleporting can be used.  Speaking of travel, there is a constant ability for players to switch between Hyrule and the Twilight realms, as well as being able to transform Link into his Hylian and wold forms, both offering varied abilities and therefore useful in a variety of ways, making game play more tactical.
