Link awakens again to embark on an adventure through a painting-like Hyrule. A painting for its appearance, but also for the problems the world faces, since dark forces have risen again. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is about to hit the market, so Nintendo has distributed the launch trailer, which you can see just below these lines.
The Wii version was specifically designed to use the motion controls with the Wii Mote Plus, the improved and more precise version of the controller for the legendary Kyoto console. A decade later, Nintendo Switch offers different forms of control, so the adaptation of this title should work also in a more traditional way and on laptop. Thus, the developers have had to make adjustments and other improvements so that the player feels comfortable in any way, with greater or lesser success.

Quality of life improvements
In The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD not only have the controls been adapted to Nintendo Switch, but they have also been implemented improvements of various kinds. On the graphic level, the game works at 60 FPS and at a higher resolution, although the design of the original has been respected in everything else. On the other hand, quality paths include the ability to skip dialogues, cutscenes, and even Fey’s spiel. The game also includes a free camera, since both Joy-Con have an analog stick, something that did not happen on the Wii (the Nuchuk had, but not the main controller).
The game will be available from the next July 16th exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
