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.
