Story

The story of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD takes place around 100 years after the events known from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask. The player becomes Link, who now lives and works in the village called Ordon. One day, the village is attacked by Bulblins who kidnap all the children. It is only the prologue to a much greater adventure.

Gameplay

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for WiiU is an RPG game that belongs to a best-selling series started in the 1980s. This time, the protagonist acts not only in a humanoid form, but at some point he is transformed into a wolf and can be then accompanied by Midna – inhabitant of the Twilight Realm. Additionally, Princess Zelda appears, albeit in slightly less than traditional role. It is worth mentioning that Link has access to a mount on which he travels through the fantasy world. It is possible to attack enemies while on horseback using the height advantage. Among Link's opponents we find living skeletons, spiders, and dragon-like monsters. Developers did not forget about bosses as well, who stand in Link’s path during the key moments of the story.
