The dual GameCube/Wii launch for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess always made it feel like a game without a home. But ten years on, it’s become one of the most beloved entries in the Zelda franchise, so it’s fitting that Nintendo is once again offering it to fans as The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess HD. The Wii U remake will be available to download through the Nintendo eShop beginning tomorrow and it’ll include improved graphics, a brand new Hero Mode, and a number of other tweaks.
Also available this week on the Wii U eShop is Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures, a bizarre point-and-click adventure game that was originally released for the Super NES back in 1994. If that doesn’t thrill you, there’s always Chasing Dead, a zombie-filled first person shooter from 2020 Venture.
More information on all of these games (and a few other new release) can be found after the break.
