It was during the Legend of Zelda concert performance that Eiji Aonuma, the series director of The Legend of Zelda series teased on the Stage “I know what you’re waiting for – Skyward Sword for Switch. Right?”. Could this imply The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Switch could be the next Zelda title for the console?
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is an action-adventure game for the Wii home console, developed and distributed by Nintendo. The sixteenth mainline entry in The Legend of Zelda series, it was released worldwide in November 2011. The game was made accessible worldwide on the Wii U eShop in September 2016.
Taking the role of series hero Link, players navigate the floating island of Skyloft and the land underneath it, finishing quests that advance the story and settling natural and prison based riddles. Interactivity mechanics and battle, the last concentrating on assaulting and hindering with sword and shield, are dependent on the Wii MotionPlus expansion device.
Game Informer asked Aonuma whether the two groups might be united to help shorten the advancement time of the following Zelda.
“The 3DS team and the Wii U team have different approaches to game development,”he said, “So I don’t necessarily want to combine them and have them think together, but rather have each think about what they can bring to Nintendo Switch from their own perspective.”
While Nintendo has a history with conveying more older games to the more up to date systems, Nintendo did re-release Majora’s Mask and Ocarina of TIme for the 3DS, so it wouldn’t be off the beaten path for them to re-release Skyward Sword for the Nintendo Switch thinking about how they won’t need to trade off on the motion controls which was a major feature of the game.
