Oh yes, these Zelda: Skyward Sword Joy-Con will be mine


Can you feel the power, Kronk? Oh, I can feel it

Oh hey look new Nintendo hardware that's highly sought after and wasn't up for pre-order when they were announced.

Yes, it's none other than a new pair of sleek looking Joy-Con: the Skyward Sword HD controllers. Nintendo noted the Joy-Cons will "launch on the game's release date [July 16] at your local retailers." Thanks! We could use a heads-up so these don't go on sale on a random midnight hour while some of us are asleep.

If you're just interested in the hardware goods, that picks up around 2:30 in the below video. As the video explains, the right Joy-Con is meant to emulate the Master Sword, while the left is the Hylian Shield.

Good luck! If we hear anything we'll get the word out. In the meantime you can take a gander at them.
