Nintendo has released a new “quality of life” trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, which shows various changes the updated game has for its 2021 launch.
As seen in the video, Skyward Sword HD now has better frame rate, skippable cutscenes, and the ability to move dialogue along faster. You can also get optional help from Fi, like a hint if you’re stuck. The trailer also highlights two new controller options, which includes both motion controls and button usage. You can check out the trailer below:
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword originally released on the Wii back in 2011. It wasn’t the first Zelda game to release for that console (Twilight Princess was), but it was specifically designed around the Wii Remote and Nunchuck.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD releases on July 16th for the Nintendo Switch. On the same day the game launches, a Zelda-themed set of Joy-Cons and a Zelda & Loftwing Amiibo figure release as well. The Amiibo is compatible with the game, and allows you to fast travel between the surface world and the sky when scanned.
