Just finished re-playing Twilight Princess again, this will be my next game to get my teeth into until Fat Cry 4 & GTA V are released for PS4. Thanks!

Thanks op, reserved one to pick up!

Excellent price for this game. It's interesting how many Nintendo games seem to hold their value so much longer than Xbox or PS. My son has just replayed this recently (I paid about £40 when it was new!) and had huge fun with it.

Damn! I'm sitting waiting for the Skyward Sword Limited Edition to arrive. If I had known this was available, I would have bought this and just picked up another controller.

I picked one up last night, I received the standard version and not the special edition that is pictured. Maybe different in other stores though...

What shop was that? That's some find!

Can you play this on Wii U? If so, do you need a special controller or can you use the gamepad?

You can play it on Wii U, but not through the gamepad. You need to use a Wii Remote Motion Plus controller.

Just a local independent shop in East Grinstead - didn't even realise it was official until I bought it!

Yes you can play it on the Wii u but not with the gamepad. You will need a motion plus controller and nunchuck controller. You can however play the game using the gamepad as the screen not the TV.

I think you need the motion plus controller

if you have a decent enough processor i would recommend playing this on dolphin emulator at 1080p! the watercolour style really pops at higher resolution

Just sold my copy on ebay for c£20. Great game and a bargain at this price.

Kirby's Epic Naan is also pretty cheap at £8.99.

Just started Twilight Princess on my Wii U and as soon as it's finished I'll be on to this.

I like the way you can fire up the Wii part of the Wii U without turning on the control pad.

If they are used to playing 3d 3rd person perspective (is Mario Galaxy) they should be OK. Some enemies require precise swinging with the motion plus which as an adult I found frustrating some times as its not as accurate as its made out to be. Its around medium difficulty as far as Zelda titles go.

Heat for the wii! Grab a cheap one off ebay and play some great games cheap. Even better grab a modded one naughty.

or use youtube and crack your wii very easly with 0% chance of bricking it and get every game free

I've done this but I'm only gonna get games like the prime trilogy with this method, which is now really rare. Come on, this is a tenner for a stellar game with great reviews (also a Nintendo game, which is a bonus). I've picked it up and it's been great so far too.

Nooo, I just bought this second hand for 18 quid in cex!!!

Doesnt this game need a patch to fix bad bugs? and the wii servers are now down? it's either this or smash bros wii.......

Awesome thank you, I might get Zelda and Kirby tomorrow to play on my Wii U, one of each left in my local Argos

Too tough for a 7 year old, great game tho, I just beat it, 40 hours

This is such a disappointing Zelda game But a cracking price nonetheless!

Think you can play most if not all wii games on wii u. Shows just how bad of a job nintendo did showcasing the wii u. Needs a proper reboot marketing push I reckon

Some pretty epic typos in the comments here!

JUst reserved. This will be my first foray into Zelda since NES. Is my brain about to melt?

Wow.. Bought the Prime Trilogy a year or so from Tesco and still have it sealed.. Had no idea it was rare or went for those sort of prices. Think I'll keep that and not bother opening it..!

Can this be played with the original Wii remotes, or do I have to buy a new motionplus controller? Thanks in advance
