Reviews have started going live for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD with the remaster releasing soon for Switch. Nintendo has a new trailer hyping up the launch and should contain plenty of familiar tropes for fans. These range from solving puzzles and navigating perilous traps in dungeons to battling all kinds of foes.
As the first story in The Legend of Zelda timeline, Skyward Sword sees Link journeying to the surface to rescue his childhood friend Zelda (though there’s plenty of navigation in the skies as well). The HD release features higher resolution visuals and a new button-only control option for those playing on Switch Lite or using a Switch Pro controller.
There are also a variety of other improvements, from skipping cutscenes and fast-forwarding dialogue to autosave and free camera control. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is out on July 16th for the Nintendo Switch. Check out details from the first review for the game here.
