Twilight Princess HD: GameCube Vs. Remake Trailer

How does a game originally designed for hardware released nearly fifteen years ago fair against an updated version built for modern hardware? This is the question that the latest trailer for Twilight Princess HD asks as the Wii U and GameCube go head to head.

Nintendo’s 2006 GameCube swansong / Wii launch title The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess is about to make the jump to the 8th generation of consoles with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U on March 2nd.

The GameCube version has a soft spot in heart, mostly because it kept the dungeon layouts in tact as they were intended and also maintained Link’s preference to wield a sword in his left hand. At the time the Wii version was really neat thanks to its sword motion controlled but it has been surpassed thanks to the nearly 1:1 accuracy of Skyward sword. Although some of the vibrancy of the GameCube version appears to have been lost in the HD update – it will be nice to play this game again with cleaned up textures and the original layouts!
