The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is something of a black sheep in the Zelda franchise, and for many, represents the series’ worst tendencies of excessive handholding and linearity, and the backlash against the game was what led to the drastic switch that we saw with Breath of the Wild. There’s still a sizeable chunk of the Zelda fanbase, however, that loves the game dearly- and if you’re among that group, there’s good news for you.

During their Nintendo Direct presentation, Nintendo announced that the longrumoured The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will be releasing for the Switch this year. The game’s unique motion control scheme will be brought over exactly as it was on the Wii, thanks to the Switch’s Joy-Cons. Of course, there’s also going to be an option to play the game without motion controls, which will see players flicking the right analog stick to determine the direction of their sword swings.

Additionally, Nintendo are also releasing new Skyward Sword-themed Joy-Cons to go along with the remaster. If your current pair is drifting, maybe keep an eye out for this one.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches for the Switch on July 16.
