Twilight Princess HD trailer will remind you how dark Zelda got

I don't know about you, but for me, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess will forever be remembered as the game that made me worry about my good friend Nintendo. They'd always been so cute and family-friendly, yet here they were telling a tale about a kingdom enslaved to darkness, full of brutal goblin-like enemies and Lovecraftian horrors. Things got dark for a while.

Don't believe me? Check out this story trailer for Twilight Princess HD and tell me this wouldn't give you nightmares as a kid:

In case you missed it the first time around, Twilight Princess once again stars the timeless hero, Link, in a quest to save the kingdom of Hyrule. Only this time, he's got a shadow imp named Midna on his side and the ability to transform into a wolf. Twilight Princess HD also lets you change up the game further thanks to amiibo, which can unlock a special dungeon, refill your arrows, refill your hearts, or make Link take twice as much damage depending on which character you use.

Twilight Princess HD will darken your memories of Link's history on March 4.
