Alongside the launch of the game’s Japanese website, a new Twilight Princess HD trailer has released.
Considering that there hadn’t been any word on Hero Mode since the Amazon France leak, I was somewhat skeptical as to whether the feature would make it into the remake. Thankfully, not only does this trailer confirm Hero Mode, but it also reveals that playing on this difficulty will reverse the world map to resemble the original Wii version. According to GameXplain’s recent preview, the Ganondorf amiibo is compatible with Hero Mode. Taking four times the amount of damage? Sign me up.
The trailer reveals some minor improvements, too. The GamePad functionality, for instance, looks to make item management more convenient. Additionally, Link can transform into a wolf more seamlessly this time around. You know, without asking for Midna’s permission. See for yourself past the jump.
