It's well known that the Wii version of Twilight Princess is mirrored from the Gamecube version. Does that mean that the path the sun and moon take through the sky is also mirrored. Do the sun and moon rise in the west and set in the east, or did the developers managed to keep the travel path for those from east to west?

Yes, the sun does rise in the west. But that raises an interesting question of whether the developers were right to call that "west". On a non-Earth planet, which way is east? You could say east is defined to be the direction the sun rises, in which case when they mirrored the map they should have kept all the directional labels as they were. Or you could define north to be the positive axis of the entire solar system, and east to be counter-clockwise around that pole even if it's in retrograde rotation.

Unfortunately for most game devs, north is just "up" and east is just "right", etc. Lazy world building IMO.
