For those that missed the massive news drop that took place on Wednesday, Nintendo held its first self-titled Nintendo Direct in almost two years. And as part of the enormous livestream which issued more exciting release to hit the Nintendo Switch in the coming months, The Legend of Zelda fans are tossed a bone too. However, it is not in relevance to the coming sequel for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Instead, it is in regards to a fan-favorite title that release roughly a decade before. Yes, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword which dropped on the Wii back in 2011 is facing an official port for the Nintendo Switch. Alongside revitalizing the core game to suit controls outside of motion controls, the game is also being touched up visually as well. But, of course, fans are still hungry for other titles as well.

But, it so happens that other lingering games, namely The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD & The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, are both planned to hit Nintendo Switch. The information comes from a tweet that Video Game Chronicles’ Andy Robinson penned in a tweet recently.

After witnessing the smash hit that was Super Mario 3D All-Stars back in September last year, it is presumed a similar suite of games will be offered for The Legend of Zelda as well. Even more, Metroid is also anticipated to be receiving the same attention as well in 2021. Both Nintendo franchises are up to celebrate each’s 35th anniversary later this year.

One note worth mentioning is how the Mario titles were executed. For the sake of the games from latter hardware, so GameCube & Wii, both were emulated respectively. So in theory, it is also indicated that Nintendo would deal the same hand for other titles in the future as well; in this case for The legend of Zelda and possibly Metroid later on.
