I'm aware there isn't much precedent for that, but I feel like it just makes too much sense for a number of reasons. Reissuing Wii U games on the NX would provide them with easy options for filling out their release schedule in those critical first couple of years when new software might be a little slow coming out. It would be an instant boost to their library, making the NX even more appealing, especially to those who didn't buy a Wii U. And most importantly of all, money. Nintendo made a lot of really great games on the Wii U and I have zero doubt that had they been released on a more popular console they would have sold several more millions copies each.

Keep in mind my thinking with this is that NX will sell much better than the Wii U, which isn't necessarily a smart assumption to make, but that's the angle I'm coming from.

Here is Malo’s rather amusing message:
“…It’s Malo. Sometimes you’d better take a breather… Tips for fishing well? Ah right… don’t get distracted by the woman behind you. For some reason all adult males are unable to do that though…”
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is now available for the Wii U.

The logic is sound, and it's not unheard of, since Nintendo do do a few re-releases of GC titles on the Wii, but it is Nintendo. You really just never know. At the very least I don't expect a port of Smash and MK8.

Hmm. Weird, I would think Smash would be one of their top priorities if they were to do this.

I feel like with Smash and MK, Nintendo puts their efforts into new iterations of the game. And realistically speaking, the Wii U version of Smash sold nearly 5 million copies, with the 3DS version selling nearly 8 million. I don't know if there's that many more sales to be had with a re-release. Would that many rebuy the game just because it was on a new platform? I mean, maybe, but I'm not sure, unless there was some type of incentive to do so outside having all DLC characters in one package. I think they'll just focus on Smash 5.

I just think that Smash Bros. has a really, really long tail due to its large following and presence in the competitive space that keeps the series in the headlines. Nintendo has traditionally ignored the competitive Smash community, but in the last two or three years they've taken steps and shown interest in embracing it somewhat. But you're right, the Wii U version of Smash sold exceptionally well for a Wii U game. So theoretically it could be less about getting more Smash sales, and more about getting more visibility, exposure, and publicity for the NX.

The Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s Hero Mode Makes The Difficulty Level Match The Atmosphere. March 7, 2016 . 1:30pm



Using the Ganondorf amiibo or turning on Hero Mode makes The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s circumstances feel even more dire
Quote:

Most The Legend of Zelda games aren’t entirely dark. Yes, there are parts of the lore that can be secretly terrifying, especially if you think about things, but most of the games aren’t haunting adventures. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask are the two games that offer a darker, scarier approach to the adventure. They’re haunting, and two of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HDs new features make the gameplay match the unnerving and dire atmosphere.

It’s one of those situations where the world has never been so visually threatened. In The Legend of Zelda games, we know something is wrong. Link wouldn’t be on his journey if everything was okay. But The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD (and Majora’s Mask) are two were we see things going wrong. The darkness and danger is obvious, and in such a situation it’s almost ridiculous to see a massive attack from a foe only take away a fraction of a heart.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s Hero Mode and Ganondorf amiibo crank up the difficulty in a way that isn’t exploitive. The enemies don’t suddenly get smarter, “cheat,” or change their tactics. Hero Mode alone will allow enemies to deal double the damage to Link, cause the world orientation to shift to match the Wii layout of Twilight Princess, and keep hearts from appearing, like when grass is cut or enemies are defeated. The changes require the player to employ more skill and behave like the hero a mature The Legend of Zelda game would expect them to be. If you’re experienced, as many coming to the game might be, it’s a way of absolutely proving yourself. Do well, and the different layout, lack of hearts, and enemy attacks won’t have any effect on you.


But the Ganondorf amiibo’s influence is even more genius. It’s Hero Mode for people who aren’t sure they’re ready for Hero Mode. You still get the same double damage effect, but can still find hearts and the assurance that the world will remain the same. The element of danger is still there. You get to be tested. Yet, you also aren’t presented with what could be an insurmountable wall. It’s a more manageable chaos.

Of course, you can combine Hero Mode and the Ganondorf amiibo to create a The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD where all enemies deal four times more damage than usual, the world is flipped, and no hearts dropped. It’s essentially a game of potential one-hit kills. It’s such a daunting feat that I only did it to confirm it worked, but was too scared to proceed any further.

Perhaps the realism is what makes The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD’s Ganondorf amiibo’s effect or Hero Mode so welcoming. The Link here isn’t a warrior by any means when the game begins, even if he is a chosen one. He starts out the game with a wooden sword and, after some careful scrounging, a slingshot. He’s more experienced as a ranch hand than a warrior. Kicking up the odds with Hero Mode or the amiibo shows what it would probably be like for someone inexperienced to suddenly become the hero. It enhances the theme and makes it feel more real.


Especially when you take his equipment and environment into account. He has a sword and a shield, yes, but nothing else that could be considered armor. When bosses hit him, those hits should be as hard as they are in Hero Mode or with the Ganondorf amiibo scanned. This is a world where magic and fairies exist, but random hearts floating around seems far fetched in such a case. One where you have to depend on potions makes much more sense. It’s almost like the two features here are allowing people to see what sorts of danger they would face if they were Link.

Yet, they do it in an inviting manner. Instead of offering one more difficult option and leaving it at that, Nintendo offered multiple options. While they can be scary, you won’t be scared away. The Ganondorf amiibo lets you get your feet wet. Hero Mode is for people who are ready to commit. Combining the two, well, that’s for true heroes. All three let you enjoy more improved ambiance, because the difficulty matches the danger Hyrule and its people face in the game.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is immediately available for the Nintendo Wii U.

Good news is that they have confirmed that the Legends characters will be able to be bought seperately, and you don't need to buy Legends to get them for your Wii U.

Wii U, NX
Rumor: New Legend of Zelda coming to Wii U and NX, has male and female Link options

Published 9 hours ago. 236 comments.

Quote:
Voice acting for most characters also rumored.





Journalist Emily Rogers has shared a series of rumors she has heard about the new The Legend of Zelda game for Wii U.
The rumors are:
  • Rumor #1 Yes, Zelda is coming to both Wii U and NX. I confirmed it with a ton of people. You can choose which one to get. Or get both.”
  • Rumor #2: I heard from multiple sources that you can choose between a male or female as your playable character in Zelda.”
  • Rumor #3: There is voice acting for most of the characters…except Link.”
The first rumor on the list isn’t very hard to believe. In fact, a credible leak back in December nearly confirmed as much.




As for Rogers, she has proven herself reliable in the past, being the first to talk about the new Paper Mario game for Wii U. Even so, Nintendo World Report’s Neal Ronaghan has reportedly heard similar rumors from multiple sources.




(Pictured: Linkle from Hyrule Warriors.)


Thanks, NeoGAF.

It makes sense, especially to market it to both male and female demographics.
I don't know if they'll change the core elements of Link being THE main protagonist. She may just be a side-character. But to get the choice of changing the sex of Link, the main character in 30 years, to Linkette, might be both an interesting and smart move.

And as for the voice-acting... I'm all for it. The silent charm, while I still accept it, is a bit outdated now.

Default Re: Offical The Legend of Zelda Thread

I have no issues with being able to chose between a male and female Link or anything, but I have a lot of doubts about it. Especially after the whole fuss was made when everyone saw the original footage, apparently forgot what a Zelda game was, thought Link was a female, and that got promptly squashed. It could be Link or a different female character, but that would probably end up causing a lot of extra work unless they just made all comments generic for a male and female, which is possible I guess.

I don't know, I'm going to remain skeptic on this one. Rogers track record is a little more hit or miss than the article seems to imply as well. She was the first to break the Paper Mario U story, but I remember she also stated that NOA had dropped Devil's Third, and was one of the 'sources' saying that Star Fox Zero was going to get delayed again and was potentially going to be outright canceled, both of which ended up not being true.

I don't believe it.. But it's stupid either way. Link has always we a boy.. Zelda a girl. If they want us to be able to choose female then let the female character be Zelda.

Let's not gender swap to please the SJW crowd.

I do hope that there is voice acting.
