Unboxing Live 186: Wolf Link Amiibo + Zelda Twilight Princess HD

Nintendo sent me an early copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD bundle, which includes the exclusive Wolf Link amiibo. In this episode, I open up the Twilight Princess bundle, and give you an up-close look at the unique Wolf Link amiibo figure. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is a Wii U remake of the Nintendo GameCube and Wii game, Twilight Princess. It's the second remaster of a Zelda title on the Wii U, following The Wind Waker HD.

Twilight Princess HD features reworked graphics with primarily new textures, giving the game a cleaner look and feel. The original had just a 480p resolution on both the GameCube and Wii, Twilight Princess HD instead has a 1080p resolution, resulting in additional clarity, especially for faraway objects and precise aiming. Most textures in the game are touched up with added details, with notable examples including Link's hair, Zant's armor, and several background textures.

You can get the Twilight Princess Wolf Link bundle now.

Unboxing Live 174: Amiibo Retro 3-Pack (Duck Hunt, R.O.B., Mr. Game & Watch)

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Features, Toys, Video Games, Videocasts,

It's time for an amiibo blast from the past with the Retro 3-Pack! Included in this set are Duck Hunt (the dog with the duck flying above), Mr. Game and Watch (the predecessor to the Game Boy), and R.O.B. (the robot peripheral for the original NES Nintendo Entertainment System.)

I give you an up-close look at each of these old school amiibo characters, which work great with Super Smash Bros U and 3DS! Let me know your thoughts in the comments - I thought Mr. Game and Watch was pretty cool the way you could change his pose, and the detail in R.O.B. was awesome.

You can order the Amiibo Retro 3-Pack now.
