Nintendo has developed a habit of transferring older games to Switch, but so far, these ports from first parties have been most restricted to Wii U games. It may change sometime in the future, as Nintendo may plan to bring The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword to Switch. Skyward Sword was obviously the last Zelda game for Wii, and the last main line game before Breath of the Wild (unless we count HD releases of Twilight Princess and Windwaker ).
It was obvious that the Switch Gate of Skyward Sword was killed by series producer Eiji Aonuma during a Zelda concert in Osaka last night. There has not yet been official confirmation, but a battle from the guy who led the charge on Zelda since Ocarina of Time is really exciting.
Aonumas teardrop was shared in a post to Weibo and has been the subject of a lot of tweets from those who participated in the concert. “I know what you’re thinking, Skyward Sword for Switch, right?” Aonuma apparently said without dive into any specific details. Skyward Sword is one of the more polarizing games in the Zelda franchise. Despite being famous by critics, its dependence on motion controls was definitely the source of some dissatisfaction among Zelda fans. cemented itself as another solid post in the series.
One should wonder if Nintendo would like a similar check schedule or return to a more traditional one in the gate Skyward Sword to Switch. While the switch’s Joy-Con controller still supports motion controls, it’s not really the core focus that it was on the original Wii device. With that in mind, Nintendo can shake up things with Skyward Sword on the switch.
Of course, a battle is not exacly the hard confirmation we want, so do not get your hopes high for Skyward Sword on Switch yet. We hold the ear to the ground for more, so stay tuned.
