It's definitely legit - its available as viewable via the NUS downloader.

These titles are 100% on the NUS database.

Well that about settles the whole Twilight Princess thing. Just another batch of Wii VC games.

What? No.

00050000-1019C800 THE LEGEND OF ZELDA Twilight Princess HD

Reading is hard it seems. Theres a significant difference between TP and the others.

Edit: ha, seems like you noticed.

Not surprised by the inclusion of Galaxy 1 considering that Galaxy 2 is already on the Wii Virtual Console. Though I suppose this confirms that the Twilight Princess icon is for Twilight Princess HD.

Hope it's the GCN version of Twilight Princess or at least has the option for good controls.

I don't understand this thread. Super Mario Galaxy is on the Wii U VC... In Japan.

If somebody could please explain to me more clearly what the OP is saying then that would be great.

EDIT: Or is this something else entirely? I dun get it.

It's on the Japanese eShop but not the American one. Just Galaxy 2 for now.

It is on Japanese Wii U eShop, so most likely legit.

It's basically further evidence that Twilight Princess HD is real, as if the fact it's clearly on the NUS isn't evidence enough.

Super Mario Universe: Galaxy 1 and 2 HD collection

Nintendo please

I honestly don't know if Wii U is powerful enough to be able to run those games in 1080p. They're not as simple as TP or WW.

They're double the framerate with more complex physics and geometry.

Of course, I'd adore them if given the treatment.

E3 this year, prepare for disappointment since it was one of their lower end events.
And prepare to be sad because Iwata is a puppet because he was terminally ill :(

The event is really great to me in retrospect : Well done Muppets and a great way to keep things light in spite of sad times.

I'm more flabbergasted at Mario VS Donkey Kong still being absent from NA Shop. Finding out recently that JP has had it for more than a year made me so livid...

Well, this just confirms 100% that TPHD is an actual HD remaster/remake and not just a VC release.

Nintendo's region discrepancy with the virtual console is so weird.

These are games they owned out right. They are not licensed titles.

I wish they'd just do an HD version of 1 and 2. I'd buy the shit out of them. The games were beautiful in 480p, but in 1080p I can't even imagine.

I rather see Super Mario Galaxy I&II HD. I still enjoy TP a lot, but I feel like SMGs are better games.

I wonder how extensive this HD remake would be? I know in Wind Waker, they did more than just make it HD. They redid the lighting, textures, and shadows. TP has so many more complicated textures, but they obviously can't hold up in HD.
