For the past year, nearly two later this summer, fans eager for Nintendo to continue kindling the fire for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild follow-up game will not be satisfied for a tad longer. However, there is another game that returning fans can entertain themselves with in the meantime – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

The original Wii title that shipped in 2011 stands to be a namely entry that resonates with many players nostalgically and critically from its time of release. However, the game has yet to hit Nintendo Switch surprisingly. There did happen to be a reporting of the game’s listing on Amazon UK previously, but no information arose from the initial finding since.

But coming from the most recent Nintendo Direct that took place this Wednesday, Nintendo unveils the game’s official HD reworking for Nintendo Switch. You can watch the trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD in the video below:

“Take to the skies, draw your sword, and experience the earliest story in the Legend of Zelda series,” says the game’s description on the Nintendo eShop. “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.”

While players can still relive the near decade-old installment with motion controls, Nintendo does go on to clarify that users on Nintendo Switch Lite or portable players can enjoy the game without the use of the joy-cons motion compatibility. Of course, you will have to condition using analog swings which might require some practicing.
