Watch us dive into Zelda: Twilight Princess HD's new dungeon, the Cave of Shadows

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD for Wii U is a pretty straightforward remake of the 2006 Wii launch title, but it does feature a new area for Link and Midna to explore: The Cave of Shadows. If you played through the original game's Cave of Ordeals, which is a wave-based survival dungeon, you'll be in familiar territory. However, the Cave of Shadows, which you can only unlock by using the Wolf Link amiibo, requires you to endure 40 rounds of combat while locked in Wolf Link mode.

It's not the most satisfying part of the HD remake, as Wolf Link combat is awfully simplistic — but it does force you to tackle some tricky enemies in new ways. You can watch us play through almost the entirety of the Cave of Shadows in the video posted above.

The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD is out tomorrow, March 4.
