More sweet information has been revealed for the HD re-release of Twilight Princess! This time, some light was shed on two of the new features that were not present or perfected in the original game.

First off, a Hero Mode has been confirmed to be in the game. Upon entering this mode, Link will take double the damage from enemies (four times the damage if you use the Ganondorf Amiibo), and no hearts will be found on the field after cutting grass or breaking pots. The world will also be completely mirrored, matching the world of the Wii release. This mode will be available from the start; there’s no need to beat the game once first to unlock it. For those who want more of a challenge, this is the mode for you!

Furthermore, the game will be implementing a new item: the Ghost Lantern. This item is for those who want less of a challenge, specifically for the Poe-hunting side quest. Upon equipping the item, the lantern will begin to glow whenever a Poe is nearby, making the collection of all 60 Poe souls much easier.

Speaking of easier, the GamePad allows the player to equip items without having to pause the game, much like it did with Wind Waker HD, which should help you out of a pickle when you have to change between items in a hurry.

Below is a video showcasing these new additions to the game. Check them out and tell us what you think!
