About The Game
When an evil darkness enshrouds the land of Hyrule, a young farm boy named Link must awaken the hero – and the animal – within.
- When Link travels to the Twilight Realm, he transforms into a wolf and must scour the land with the help of a mysterious girl named Midna. Using the power and unique control of the Wii console, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess features incredibly precise aiming control using the Wii Remote.
- The Wii Remote and the Nunchuk™ controllers are used for a variety of game activities, including fishing, sword attacks and projectile-weapon aiming.
- Players ride into battle against troops of foul creatures and wield a sword and shield with the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers, then take on massive bosses that must be seen to be believed.
- Many puzzles stand between Link and the fulfillment of his quest, so players must sharpen their wits as they hunt for weapons and items.
Game storyline: Link, a young man raised as a wrangler in a small, rural village, is sent to bear a gift to the royal family of Hyrule. Before he can leave, tragedy strikes the village and he is yanked into a twilight gloom that has covered Hyrule. When he enters that realm, he transforms into a wolf and is captured. A mysterious figure named Midna helps him break free. With the aid of her magic, they set off to free the land from the shadows.
Characters: Link, Zelda, Midna and many other characters, both new and old.
How to progress through the game: Link must explore the vast land of Hyrule and uncover the mystery behind its plunge into darkness. As he does, he’ll have to enlist the aid of friendly folk, solve puzzles and battle his way through dangerous dungeons. In the twilight, he’ll have to use his wolf abilities and Midna’s magic to bring light to the land.
Special powers/weapons/moves/features: Besides his trusty sword and shield, Link will use his bow and arrows by aiming with the Wii Remote, fight while on horseback and use a wealth of other items, both new and old. Players can use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controller to initiate sword swings, spin attacks and shield shoves.
