Poe Lantern

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is just a couple weeks away from release, marking the third consecutive console that the game will be released for. Naturally, this isn't going to be just the same game with a fresh coat of paint, but there will be some tweaks to the core gameplay to make it an overall tighter and more enjoyable experience.

One of the new improvements is a Poe Lantern item that will allow Link to find Poes in the daytime. Those of you that played the original will no doubt remember this somewhat tedious sidequest where Link could collect sixty Poe souls over the course of his adventure, with the caveat that they only appeared at night. 'Malo' has been running the official Zelda Twitter in Japan for the past few weeks and he recently shared a bit about this new item. Here's the quote, courtesy of Nintendo Everything:

…It's Malo. This is not a simple lantern… It's called the "Ghost Lantern", and it also detects the existence of Poes during day and will let you know about it…… so you can be like 'It's useless to hide yourself!' Time is money… so use it well.

What do you think? Are you glad that Nintendo has been making changes like this? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
