With Twilight Princess HD less than two months away from its release, substantial news regarding the remake is just starting to pour out. Scans from this week’s issue of Famitsu revealed a lower Tears of Light count in the Lanayru Province, as well as a wallet that can carry at least 2000 — twice as many! — Rupees.
That’s all small beans when compared to what seems to have been announced today, though. Amazon France reportedly leaked several of the game’s major features through its product listing. Although the site has since removed that information, several publications have already caught it. Head past the jump for more details.
The listing shed some light on the game’s amiibo functionality; the Link, Toon Link, Zelda, Sheik, and Ganondorf figures will help restore the Hylian Hero’s hearts or arrows.
Let’s get to the headline of this article, though. Although some people speculated that this would be the case, I’m still surprised to hear it: the Wolf Link-Midna amiibo is said to unlock a dungeon called the “Cave of Twilight.” Admittedly — assuming that this listing is accurate — we don’t know how meaty this dungeon is, but Nintendo could be blocking a significant chunk of content behind this amiibo. Fortunately, at least, all retail copies of the game — as far as I know — come bundled with the figure.
Additionally — and this is something I’ve been crossing my fingers for since the remake was announced — the listing mentions that Twilight Princess HD will boast a Hero Mode. The original title is my all-time favorite video game, but even I’ll admit that the enemies are too easy to take down. Having a mode in which Link takes twice as much damage from attacks will definitely be appreciated.
