Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword could be coming to Switch
Amazon UK lists Switch port
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword could be coming to Nintendo Switch.
That’s according to a new listing on Amazon UK, which suggests that a remaster of the Wii title could soon be released for its current console hardware.
The original Wii game, which was released in November 2011, was reliant on the Wii Motion Plus peripheral for sword combat and puzzles, so any Nintendo Switch port would likely require significant mechanical changes for handheld play.
Nintendo previously released remasters for Zelda’s two earlier 3D entries, Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, for Wii U. Both titles featured upgraded visuals and gameplay additions.
The Legend of Zelda series will celebrate its 35th anniversary next year.
Currently Nintendo’s only first-party title with a confirmed release date is another remaster, Pikmin 3: Deluxe, which is due out in October. Another remaster, Super Mario 3D World Deluxe, is expected this year.
Earlier this year it was claimed that the next Zelda title Breath of the Wild 2’s development was taking longer than expected and that its release would likely miss this calendar year.
In Nintendo’s latest earnings results, the sequel is listed with a ‘TBA’ release.
