The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess may be getting a HD re-release on the Wii U, if some evidence on the backend of the Nintendo eShop is to be believed.
First off, an icon for Twilight Princess was found in the system. This led some to believe that an emulated release, like Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Metroid Prime Trilogy, was in the works. However, a listing for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD was found on the eShop servers as well. It seems like a full HD release of the game is in development.
Nintendo has not made any announcements for an HD re-release nor has the company commented on these rumors and findings.
I haven’t finished the original Wii release due to the slow opening and my dislike for motion controls. So this would actually be right up my alley. I know there’s a GameCube version with standard controls but that version is hard to come by, especially for a cheap price. If this does prove to be true, I hope the HD version includes both standard and motion controls, as well as both the normal GameCube and mirrored Wii versions of the game.

Every game on the Wii U can be played with the remote. If Twilight Princess is remade it’ll most likely work like the Breath of Fire games. You’ll be able to play it on the tv with the controller or by looking down at screen. Either way works for me.
