The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
Nearly a decade after its original release on the Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword saw a much-improved remaster on the Nintendo Switch, fixing a myriad of issues that the original game possessed.
Apart from the obvious high-definition upgrade, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD features a plethora of significant quality of life upgrades to make for a better, more enjoyable experience. Such examples include the ability to play either with the standard motion controls that utilizing the gyro functionality of the Joy-Cons or new analog controls, using the right analog stick to slice and slash enemies with Link’s sword.
Then, there is the ability to fast-forward through dialogue, skip cutscenes, not be inundated with constant item pickup descriptions or companion Fi’s constant hand-holding that the original Wii game received rightful criticism about.
Skyward Sword HD is a marked improvement over the Wii original, and whether you’re playing it for the first time or experiencing it all over again, there is a tremendous, heartfelt, and legendary game to play through. It was arguably one of the more enjoyable games released back in 2011, and it remains a great game from this past month.
