The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is looking like a pretty conservative remaster of the original Wii title, to the extent that there are many who are wondering whether the game should be sold at full-price (which is often with case with Nintendo re-releases). Even so, the game is going to have some new features, and Nintendo has been advertising those of late.
One of these is autosaving. Yeah, that’s a new feature. Meanwhile, if you save manually at a Bird Statue, you will now also be able to choose from one of three available slots, rather than locking you to one single slow as the original did, which means you can now make multiple copies of a single save. So… not exactly cutting edge features, but, you know- good to have nonetheless.
Meanwhile, Skyward Sword HD is also going to have improved motion controls, rebalanced tutorials, quality of life improvements, a “smoother” experience in its opening section, and more. All of this is, of course, on top of the visual and performance improvements and the new button control scheme.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches for the Switch on July 16.
