Midna Returns as Guide in My Nintendo Picross: Twilight Princess

My Nintendo, the big N’s successor to the Club Nintendo rewards program, launched today. The site already features more than a handful of neat rewards, including 3DS menu themes, discounts, and Virtual Console games.

However, the most notable reward is definitely My Nintendo Picross: Twilight Princess. This downloadable puzzle game for 3DS is, as of right now, available only through My Nintendo — for 1000 points, no less! That’s going to be a pretty steep climb for me, at least.

The title has been available in Japan for awhile now, and YouTuber NintenDaan released some footage of that version in action. Based on the video, it looks as if Midna herself is the one guiding you through the game’s 45 levels.

I’m telling you, she’s everywhere at this point, guys. I mean, I just finished Twilight Princess HD last night, and the mischievous imp is already trying to teach me how to play Picross. See the game for yourself after the jump!

Twilight Princess HD Releases Today, Critics Still Dig Midna

The wait is over, folks. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is available in North America and Europe.

I can’t believe it’s been about a year and a half since I last played my all-time favorite video game — so excited to hop back into it. Considering that I have played through the GameCube version only once — my first time through back in ’07 — this journey through the HD remake’s normal difficulty setting should be refreshing.

Reviews have been pouring out throughout the past few days, too. As of right now, it’s averaging at 85 percent on Metacritic. Given the original’s fluctuating reputation among the Zelda fan base throughout the past decade, I’m happy to see such positive reception. Take a look at some of the gaming media’s comments after the jump.
