zelda-twilight-princess-midna-art

The official Japanese Twitter account for The Legend of Zelda series has been sharing small snippets of art and stories about the development of Twilight Princess, especially now that the game is getting an HD remaster on the Wii U. Today’s latest tweet features some concept art of Midna that we’ve never seen before, in addition to a small bit about her name.

Here’s the translated tweet courtesy of Nintendo Everything:

“…It’s Malo. This is Midna, the gal who is profusely well-informed about the Twilight Realm. Seems like there were various kinds of designs until her appearance became like this. Speaking of which, her name seems to come from midnight… “shadow” = “night” is simple, isn’t it.”

Twilight Princess HD is releasing on March 4 alongside the bundled Wolf Link amiibo. The amiibo is exclusive to the bundle, so if you want to unlock the extra dungeon included in the game, you’ll probably want to purchase the bundle instead of buying the game digitally.
