Hold on to your joy-cons. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is coming to Switch.
First released in 2011, this decade-old Wii game is a polarizing game for Zelda fans. Some are happy that the game is getting an HD refresh, but others are disappointed that it is getting a new home over games like Wind Builder or Twilight Princess. However, not all hope is lost for his critics. There’s always the possibility that more Zelda projects will come this holiday season. There are still rumors about Phantom Hourglass re-releases are out there, while others claim more 3D Zelda games are coming to the Switch.
What’s more exciting than an HD refresh of a beloved 3D classic is a full remake of an older Zelda game. Nintendo Link’s Awakening The remake proves that some of Zelda’s rarely-played games could really benefit from a complete makeover, so the series’ 35th anniversary feels like the perfect time to revisit some of its other special titles. Here is six games Zelda which is just itching for a Switch remake.
But first: How can games help you get through the pandemic? We want to hear from you! Take this fast Backwards survey.
6. Game CD-i Zelda
Just kidding. Except … ? Back in the day, Nintendo famously licensed the Zelda character to Philips for the launch of its CDI system, resulting in some bad games that fans didn’t talk about. They’ve basically been written out of canon by this point, but frankly, why don’t we get a chance to play them?
We can’t just defend the best games; We also need to take note of the bad. Therefore, the Philips CD-i Zelda All-Stars collection will be a funny and interesting historical document. Do it for the memes, Nintendo.
5. Legend of Zelda
Nintendo doesn’t tend to remake its NES classics too much and that’s probably for the best. Many of those games are just fine, so there’s no need to mess around with perfection. That said, the original Legend of Zelda The game is an adventure that will become epic with increasing scale.
The less structured nature of the original game almost makes it more like Wild Breathgameplay is open to anything, so it would be nice to see the world come to life and give Switch owners another exploration-heavy journey with more traditional dungeons.
4. The Legend of Zelda: The Adventure of the Four Swords
Bowser’s Fury not the first side game to be packaged with a Nintendo re-release. Back in the days of the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo was bundled up Relationship to the past with a spin-off title called Four Swords.
An excellent multiplayer game lets four friends connect and fight their way through dungeons. While the game got some sort of extended sequel on the GameCube, the Nintendo Switch would be a better home for it. Online multiplayer can revive the classics and turn Zelda’s multiplayer into a more viable option for the series going forward.
3. Zelda II: Adventure Link
Zelda II not the most loved game in the series. In fact, it’s probably the only mainstream game that’s more polarizing than Sky Sword.
The NES classic is a very difficult game that’s more memorable for its side-scrolling parts than anything else. That makes it a perfect candidate for a remake. By modernizing the more outdated game design elements, Nintendo was able to give the NES classic the right glow it needed to make its story shine. The company pulls off a similar trick with the awesome Nintendo 3DS remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus, so there’s no reason not to do the same success with Zelda II.
2. The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
mini hat probably the most niche Zelda game out there. The Game Boy Advance title offers a truly creative spin on the franchise with its shrinking world full of endearing characters.
Tone-wise, it almost feels like a follow-up to Link’s Awakening, so it’s the perfect game for the next Grezzo developer to recreate. Art style in the Switch version of Link’s Awakening especially it seems suitable for mini hatcolorful cartoon visuals. Grezzo could theoretically use the exact same visual engine and style to bring the game to life without actually starting from scratch.
1. The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages & Season
Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages and Season are two of the best games in the entire franchise, despite being a side game.
Developed by Capcom, this gaming duo offers a stylish adventure packed with stories, deepening the lore of the Gods and villains Hyrule. In some ways, it’s one of the more important games in the franchise when it comes to world building. Like mini hat, feels like the next natural step for Grizzo developers to take. The studio has the ability to modernize old Zelda games and Oracle titles deserve such attention and care.
