Once again, the Amazon UK online store presents premature surprises. A page for the action-adventure The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Switch was discovered on the site. This is one of the fan-favorite parts of the series that came out on Wii in 2011.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is chronologically set before any other game in the series. Link is not born in Hyrule, but in the cloud city of Skyfall. At the same time, Zelda is not a princess, but a good friend of the protagonist. In the story, the main character finds the sword of the goddess and learns about the world located under the clouds, where the demon lord Girahim rules. Of course, he decides not to stand aside and defeat evil.
This part of the famous series is very different from the rest. First of all, management. In it, it is tied to the Wii MotionPlus accessory – to strike with a sword, protect with a shield, shoot a bow and use other objects, you need to make waves and other movements with your hands. Therefore, it is unclear how the gameplay will be carried over to the Nintendo Switch. Yes, the Joy-Con controllers have gyroscope and motion control, but there is a version of the console without the “joycons” – Nintendo Switch Lite.
Of course, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has not been confirmed. It cannot be ruled out that this is a mistake of the online store. But this is not the first time that the rumor about the game will be re-released.
