Already own The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD on your Wii U? Live in North America? You can now pre-load the game to be ready for when the actually releases next month.


The pre-load apparently covers most of the game’s files, but you will still have to wait for a small update to be installed when the game releases. Also, at present we don’t know if the pre-load is live in other territories, but it certainly does seem to be online for North America. Of course, the pre-load will only be available to you if you have already pre-purchased the game from the online store.

Interested in getting the game? It costs $50 at the online store, and $60 at retail. The physical retail version, however, includes a Wolf Link amiibo, adding a new dungeon to the game. So yes, it sounds like you have to pick between being able to play the game immediately as it launches, vs. getting a brand new dungeon in your game.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD releases on 4 March, which is just short of two weeks away.
