The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Announced For Nintendo Switch (VIDEO)
Today’s Nintendo Direct presentation saved one of the best announcements for last, with Nintendo announcing an official re-release for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Titled The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, the game will be releasing on Nintendo Switch this Summer and will feature improved visuals, revised motion controls, and more.
As revealed by Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will run at 60fps and will feature significantly improved visuals and controls in comparison to the original Wii version of the game. The original title’s motion controls are being optimized for use with the Nintendo Switch Joy-Cons, though players can also choose to play using button-only controls with the Pro Controller, handheld mode, or using the Nintendo Switch Lite. For the re-release, Link will “match the angle of each strike you make with the Joy-Con controller, creating immersive swordplay that relies on strategy and accuracy,” according to Nintendo. ” Movements feel smoother and more immediate thanks to the Nintendo Switch system’s increased processing power and HD graphics.”
“Take to the skies, draw your sword, and experience the earliest story in the Legend of Zelda series,” Nintendo’s official description reads. “Join Link in his high-flying quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must confront her destiny. Soar between floating islands and descend to the treacherous surface world in this updated HD version of the Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.”
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is slated to release on July 16th, 2021 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
