It’s a big week for re-releases as Nintendo, NetherRealm, Ubisoft, and NIS America are all giving some of their biggest games a second shot at the spotlight.
Nintendo is likely on the verge of another console transition, but the jump from the GameCube to the Wii felt unique in that players were given two chances to experience latest Legend of Zelda game. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princes was available for both platforms back in 2006, but now it’s back for its tenth anniversary as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on the Wii U. In addition to the enhanced graphics implied by the “HD” branding, Twilight Princess HD will include a new Challenge Mode, a harder Hero Mode, and a beautiful Wolf Link Amiibo figure.
Another game getting an expanded re-release this week, though less than a year after its original launch, is Mortal Kombat X. Available this week for the PS4 and Xbox One, Mortal Kombat XL will add in all of the previously released downloadable content as well as the four new fighters from “Kombat Pack 2” (Alien‘s Xenomorph, Leatherface, Bo Rai Cho, and Tri-Borg).
NIS America will also jump onto the re-release train with The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition, a PS4 remake of an action RPG originally released for the PS3.
And finally, after making its PS4 and Xbox One debut last week, Ubisoft’s Stone Age adventure, Far Cry: Primal, will be released for the PC this week.
The rest of this week’s new releases can be found after the break.
