Over the years, Nintendo has re-released many The Legend of Zelda video games to various new platforms. Well now it sounds like we will finally be getting a port of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on the Nintendo Switch sometime in the near future.
Reportedly, The Legend of Zelda series producer, Eiji Aonuma, hinted that a Nintendo Switch version of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword might be released in the near future. He revealed this exciting news in Osaka, Japan during a Zelda concert that was happening over the weekend.
Skyward Sword released back on the original Nintendo Wii console and it is one of the most polarizing Zelda games ever released. This is mainly due to the fact that players needed to use motion controls in order to do lots of things in the game. I remember being stuck in the game, until my brother had to help me with the controls.
If this port comes out on Switch, I hope they re-do the controls so you don’t have to use hand motions to control Link and his actions. Hopefully this news will become official when Nintendo makes a formal announcement on it.
Anyway, you can read an overview of the game posted down below via the Wikipedia page.
“The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword[b] is an action-adventure game for the Wii home console, developed and published by Nintendo. The sixteenth mainline entry in The Legend of Zelda series, it was released worldwide in November 2011. The game was made available worldwide on the Wii U eShop in September 2016. Taking the role of series protagonist Link, players navigate the floating island of Skyloft and the land below it, completing quests that advance the story and solving environmental and dungeon-based puzzles.
