Check out Nvidia Shield TV’s The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess graphical update

The other week, we posted about an update available for the Nvidia Shield TV version of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess that gave the graphics a bit of enhancement. Now you can check out what that update looks like in the footage above!


That is so much better. The original on Wii was a blurry mess. I loved the game but it was muddy for a while. This cleans up the lines and haziness nicely.

Well, We've had Twilight Princess HD for years. Not like you've had to wait for this version to finally play it looking better than that muddy mess.

The Wii version is garbage compared to the GameCube version anyway.

It is? How so? You got mah curiousity Smile

It’s not - seems like a Troll comment. The Wii version is “mirrored” compared to the GC version to facilitate making Link right-handed as the Wii Remote is typically held in a persons right hand.

I know all that. So still a bit on the "huh?" side on this one.

It's not a troll comment. When I played Twilight Princess on GCN, it was a 10/10 experience. When I played it on Wii later on, it was a 7/10, and the only reason it wasn't lower was because Twilight Princess itself is so good. Personally, the mirroring distracted me because everything was now the opposite of where I remembered it, but the bigger problem was the controls. I *hated* the controls. I will defend Skyward Sword to the death for its superb motion controls, but in Twilight Princess they were the definition of tacked on. Then there was that fairy cursor always on screen being distracting, and the change in the aiming of the bow and such from first- to third-person was really annoying. It ruined the experience, and up until TPHD came out I would tell anyone who would listen that the GameCube version is the only way one should play Twilight Princess.

Obviously there are better options like Twilight Princess HD for Wii U but using component cables with the original version on the Wii makes a big difference. You get a much more crisp image but you'll have lots of jagged edges. During the era of the Wii, those component cables we're one of the best purchases I ever made.

Nintendo's really missing a lot of sales for being so stubborn and not getting any of the for games on the Switch.

I still have a hunch they'll resell Wii games on Switch as they did on the Wii U, just more with this nvidia tech. But that's far off. We don't even have SNES games yet. Heck. We barely have NES games....
