With the launch of the Nintendo Switch, the company also launched a new Zelda game with the console: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. The open concept of the game and the new graphics made it very popular. It was a huge hit for the company.
We have heard rumors that Nintendo could be working on a new Zelda game for the Switch now, which is not a big surprise. But Nintendo could also be looking to bring older Zelda titles onto the console. Now it looks like this was revealed by the franchise’s producer and director Eiji Aonuma who hinted at the possibility of Skyward Sword arriving on the Switch.
This news was revealed during a Legend of Zelda concert that was held in Osaka, Japan. While Nintendo or Aonuma has not yet confirmed the reports, this is something that many fans who attended the concert are claiming, so take it with a grain of salt for now.
Skyward Sword was released back in 2011 for the Wii. While the game had its moments, many criticized it due to its heavy reliance on motion controls. We’re not sure if those controls will be changed for the Switch version, but that seems likely.
