Here's what we know about Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD

Jan 18 // Chris Carter
Confirmed info: Twilight Princess HD features a 1080p visual overhaul based on the GameCube edition of the original (left-handed Link). Three slots will be available for items, the GamePad can be used for inventory management, and you can now instantly switch to Wolf Link with the GamePad without pausing the game. The physical boxed edition nets you a Wolf Link and Midna amiibo for $59.99. Said amiibo will interact with the upcoming Zelda Wii U game in some form. This week, digital pre-order codes showed up on Amazon for $49.99. Multiple control methods will be supported, not just the GamePad. Pre-orders at specific retailers come with a music CD. There is an amiibo-based dungeon that requires the Wolf Link and Midna toy to unlock. Tears of Light sections are streamlined so they're less tedious, similar to the pieces of the Triforce in Wind Waker HD. They now require 12 tears instead of 16. Miiverse Stamps are in A new item called the Ghost Latern has been added. It will glow when a Poe is near, helping him recover Poe Souls. The wallet limit has been increased by default. Hero Mode is in, with double damage modifier and "no health-replenishing hearts." Using the Ganondorf amiibo will increase the damage level to quadruple.
