On July 16, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD will be released on Nintendo Switch, a remake of the famous 2011 game. Content, gameplay, what can we expect from this release?
On February 21, Nintendo celebrated the thirty-fifth anniversary of Hyrule and its inhabitants. The opportunity for many fans around the world to celebrate one of the greatest franchises in the history of video games. Unfortunately for many of them, no announcements have been made regarding The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2. However, Nintendo has announced the release of a new remake: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. The game originally released for Wii in 2011 has been given a second lease of life, to the delight of young and old alike.
Small reminder, Zelda Skyward Sword is the last title on Nintendo console of the franchise before the release of Breath of the Wild. It therefore carries in its gameplay some original ideas that made the success of its successor. The players of the remake will therefore be able to use the Parachel to slow down their falls, improve their equipment or even manage their endurance bar during the racing and combat phases. An argument with which Nintendo hopes to seduce the many players of its most recent open-world.
As for the grip, the movement system with the Wiimote and the Nunchuk to control Link’s sword and shield is ported to Nintendo Switch. Players will be able to control the sword with one of the Joy-con and the shield with the other, while benefiting from the more powerful motion sensor of the Nintendo Switch. For those who had not been convinced by this kind of technology, or who wanted to enjoy this new remake on Nintendo Switch Lite, the game will still be playable with buttons only. In addition, Nintendo is also releasing a customized version of its Joy-cons on the occasion of the release of Zelda Skyward Sword HD. A version that will be available just like the game on July 16.
Revisited graphics, easy gameplay while keeping the essential elements of the 2011 game, everything is in place for a successful release. We can only hope that players enjoy the rediscovery of a game that had largely seduced almost ten years ago and whose plot centered around the creation of the Sword of Legend is well situated. before Ocarina of Time. The game is already available for pre-order from the Nintendo Store. As for us, we look forward to seeing you on July 16, for an HD release on Nintendo Switch.
