Link's Crossbow Training HD Hoax

I made this for an April Fools' Day prank on both and

I also wrote a German press release with the following details:

  • HD remaster in the style of Twilight Princess HD.
  • Uses the gyro aiming of the Wii U GamePad.
  • Two new stages with three new levels each. New settings in Forest Temple, Goron Mines and Lakebed Temple. New Armogohma boss fight.
  • Comes with a Linkle amiibo.
  • The Linkle amiibo unlocks "Linkle's Crossbow Training". Because she dual-wields two crossbows, a second player can join this mode with a Wii Remote on the TV.
  • You can play the Linkle mode alone as well. Levels will be mirrored an highscores put on the Linkle amiibo.
  • Classic multiplayer is still there. Players simply make turns with the GamePad.
  • Linke amiibo gets both supported by Hyrule Warriors: Legends and The Legend of Zelda for Wii U.
  • Released on June 3rd, limited amiibo bundle available.

This was supposed to be a more "realistic" hoax with some knocks against Nintendo's recent overabundance of remasters, remakes and amiibo baits. However, on April 1st no one will believe you anything and for good reason. I had actually more success last year, when I announced some swimwear costume sets for Hyrule Warriors with things like a "Triforce Trikini" for Zelda. It's still fun to do and if someone gets a laugh out of these jokes, it's worth the effort.
