The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD has button and motion controls

Switch Lite owners won’t be left out

I know it’s not the most popular game in the series, but there is a special place in my heart for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Sure, Fi is annoying, but it’s one outstanding adventure with beautiful visuals and dynamic boss battles. If you skipped it on the Wii, you’ll have a chance to experience it on Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD.

The game’s motion controls are optimized for Nintendo Switch, with the right Joy-Con controlling the sword and the left Joy-Con controlling the shield. It will also have button-only controls if you want to skip all that. The game will release on July 16, 2021. Nintendo will also be releasing special Joy-Con controllers alongside the game.
