The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is kind of the black sheep of the Zelda family, but when it launches again for the Switch in less than a month, it’s going to get another lease of life. Ahead of its looming release, Nintendo has released an overview trailer detailing the game’s story, world, gameplay mechanics, and more.

Skyward Sword’s structure will be more familiar to longtime series fans as opposed to Breath of the Wild, seeing as it progresses in a much more linear fashion and has dungeon- and item-based progression. As the first game in the series’ timeline, it’s also a particularly entry, especially since it talks about the origins of the Master Sword, among other things.

Meanwhile, Skyward Sword is going to offer a regular control scheme for those who want to play in handheld mode (or on the Switch Lite). Motion controls will also be returning as an option, and Nintendo says they’re going to be smoother and more intuitive than they were on the Wii. Finally, players can also expect a number of quality of life enhancements (though one particular feature is bafflingly being locked behind an amiibo purchase).

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