Zelda: Twilight Princess HD tweet (1/25/16)

Posted on January 25, 2016 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

Yet another new tweet has been posted on the Japanese Zelda Twitter account. Today’s message is a little more interesting, as it contains concept art of Midna.

Here’s the translated tweet:

“…It’s Malo. This is Midna, the gal who is profusely well-informed about the Twilight Realm. Seems like there were various kinds of designs until her appearance became like this. Speaking of which, her name seems to come from midnight… “shadow” = “night” is simple, isn’t it.”

    That’s a pretty awesome design there on the right. Always nice to see more dev stuff.

    • Sleepy Abra

      ya cool design but i am glad they went with the design they did :I

    • KnightWonder

      Here are some other designs they had. They’re all pretty awesome too.

        Oh that blue-blooding-eye wolf link looks fantastic

        • KnightWonder

          I wish they had used that one as opposed to the current version.

          • Isaac Ness

            Yeah, i also like the octopus-head midna a lot, she looks so mystic

      • キロ

        Oh cool, are these from Hyrule Historia or elsewhere?

      • Terpsichore

        So glad they kept that True Midna form, the skirt gives her elegance. Those imp forms are wacky, red one is freaky.

  • KnightWonder

    So is Midna actually naked, or are those some really tight fitting clothes?

    • Sleepy Abra

      she is full on nude bro :V

      • KnightWonder

        …That’s weird for Nintendo. Rated M for Imp Nudity.

        • Sleepy Abra

          XD

          • KnightWonder

            Hey, I’m not complaining. I’d do her even in Imp form…my god rule34 what have you done to me?

          • Sleepy Abra

            maybe one day you just might ..one day
            VR mods….

          • KnightWonder

            Well they did make that jerk off machine with the Oculus Rift.

          • Addy the Wanderer

            Okay, seriously! No more internet! Go outside!

          • Sleepy Abra

            i want to start VR anime high school.
            instead of going to real school just go to a virtual school 😀

          • Sleepy Abra

            Addy did you fix your mario maker levels… i told you they are buggy !!!!

          • Addy the Wanderer

            What are talking about? This is the first time I’m hearing about this.

          • Sleepy Abra

            i left you a comments on ur levels :I
            have not you checked them ?

          • Addy the Wanderer

            No, I was too busy playing other games. I’ll go look.

          • Sleepy Abra

            anyway i played your blue maze level…. great level but i got stuck and broke the level…. i gave you a star tho

          • Addy the Wanderer

            I played the level, nothing happened. Whatever you did to break, it was probably because you didn’t play it properly.

          • Sleepy Abra

            no your saying that because you made the level thus you know what to do… someone new who knows nothing about the level can break it. w/e bro its your level your gonna lose out on stars

          • Sleepy Abra

            yup…

          • Addy the Wanderer

            Okay, that’s enough internet for awhile. Go outside.

          • KnightWonder

            But…it’s almost midnight.

          • Addy the Wanderer

            Then go in the morning! GFD!

          • Sleepy Abra

            you know what that means 😉

  • Blake Good

    Just confirm Off-TV Play already, please!

    • skilarbabcock

      That’s pretty much guranteed

      • Blake Good

        Good because I heard a rumor that they might remove the MissingNo. glitches in the Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow VC releases. I hope not!

        • skilarbabcock

          That’s the Pokemon company’s decision. But Zelda is Nintendo company. It’s in most Wii u games so I can guarantee it’ll be on this

          • Blake Good

            It’s pretty much 99.9% impossible to remove glitches from games unless they are ported instead of added to the Virtual Console like the 3D Classics games for example.

          • skilarbabcock

            It’s not impossible because it their game and their coding

          • Blake Good

            Nope it isn’t. sorry.

          • skilarbabcock

            Not really. I mean they’re doing it to twilight princess. And they did it to wind waker. They did it to the 3D classics. It’s their voiding, they can change it easily because they are the ones who did it. And it’s not hard. My friend Jack on Tomoyas team is doing it on twilight princess like its nothing. And he’s 17. Not to mention people have hacked the original fairly easily as well. Unless you are a developer, you can’t really say anything on the subject.

          • Blake Good

            Twilight Princess HD is an enhanced port whereas Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow are the original versions, unaltered.

            Yes, they can change the coding but the game would have to be ported over instead of being a straight emulation of the original. Take Super Mario Bros. Deluxe for example, the glitches like the Minus World have been removed but the infinite 1-up trick where you bounce a Koopa’s shell against the staircase of blocks before the goal flag still remains because it’s not a glitch, only a trick.

          • skilarbabcock

            You don’t know much about this do you? Emulators can played modded Roms

          • Blake Good

            That’s different.

          • skilarbabcock

            No it’s not. It’s not at all different. VC is really just an emulator. It’s different? No. It’s not.

          • Blake Good

            Bull$hit!

  • Nerwrax15

    Best partner 4LYFESUN!

  • The bottom one has a better hair style than the final version.

    • Kaihaku

      Probably couldn’t make the hair work on the gamecube… A shame since it does look a lot better.

  • link2metroid

    I think the final design of Midna that they went with in the game is probably best. The blue eyed Link Wolf in the second image looks cool and rather menacing.

  • Reggie

    These are cool as well as the others, but I definitely like the final design more. It’s a lot less busy and loud. Simplicity is often better.
