Nintendo confirmed that Twilight Princess would be getting the HD treatment, as well as its own amiibo figure.

Last month, we heard some rumors that The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess may be next in line for the HD remake treatment, following Wind Waker HD. During today's Nintendo Direct, Nintendo confirmed the news, announcing that the game would be releasing on March 4, 2016 for the Wii U, alongside a new Wolf Link amiibo figure.

In addition to Wolf Link, the game will be compatible with the five other previously released Zelda amiibos: Link, Toon Link, Zelda, Ganonndorf and Shiek. Nintendo also promised some additional new features for the HD remake of the game, but said it would talk more about that at a later date.

Twilight Princess was originally released back in 2006, for both the GameCube and the newly-released Wii. Technically, the Wii version of the game was already a pseudo "HD-remake" of the GameCube version, but the graphics were almost identical. The story follows Link as he is pulled into the realm of Twilight, and transformed into a wolf, with only the mysterious creature Midna as his guide.
