The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD fans are counting down the days until Nintendo releases the game. On Twitter, the company is helping all Switch players keep track of release days. Nintendo held a big E3 press conference this week showing off a bit of the game during their Zelda coverage. Despite their excitement for a major re-release of the Wii title, many fans are more focused on the sequel The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Some trailers get a special place at the end of the Nintendo Direct. But, some fans want a little more than an annual showcase. Funnily enough, when it comes to the upcoming sequel, players may want to revisit Skyloft because BOTW2 looks heavily influenced by the earliest games in the Zelda timeline.

Nintendo released dropping new description of NS Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, “Raise to the sky, draw your sword, and experience the earliest story in the Legend of Zelda series. Join Link on his flying quest to save Zelda, a childhood friend who must face her destiny. Soar between floating islands and descend into a treacherous surface world in the new HD version of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.”
“Swing your sword and aim your slash to uncover and penetrate your opponent’s defenses using intuitive movement controls. The links match the angle of every attack you make with the Joy-Con controller, creating immersive swordplay that relies on strategy and accuracy. Movement feels smoother and faster thanks to the Nintendo Switch system’s increased processing power and HD graphics. Take advantage of the newly added button-only control scheme—perfect for playing in handheld mode or on the Nintendo Switch Lite system.”

I’m really starting to believe that Nintendo’s decision to release this instead of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess for Zelda’s 35th means Skyward Sword might have an important part to play in Breath of the Wild 2. https://t.co/7CG9QBPWuc
