2006 action-adventure video game

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (ゼルダの伝説 トワイライトプリンセス, Zeruda no Densetsu Towairaito Purinsesu) is a video game in The Legend of Zelda group of games. The game is both for the Nintendo GameCube and for the Wii. The game is played like most of the past Zelda games, but in this game a player can also change into a wolf using the magic power of Midna, a Twili who helps the player defeat Zant, a crazy Twili under the influence of Ganondorf, who he believed to be a dark god. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was liked by many people and sold more than a million copies and Twilight Princess is the best Zelda game music wise because it offers various in game theme tunes that play when exploring different areas as to create the difference in ambience between the many landscapes. Players still get the Master Sword like in many other Zelda games. The Official Nintendo Magazine said it was the 16th best Nintendo game of all time. [2] A remake for the Wii U was released in March 2016 known as The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.
