Ten years after its original release on Wii, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, a remastered version of the game, is being rereleased on Switch July 16. No news on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, but the previous home console game in the series is coming to Switch in high definition with optional motion controls using the Joy-Con. Not only are Switch players getting the game, but special Master Sword and Hylian Shield-themed Joy-Con will be released on the same day.

Skyward Sword was the second game in the series that featured Link fighting right-handed due to the use of motion controls. Along with advanced motion controls, the game introduced other new features such as the stamina wheel, collecting materials, weapons breaking, and using a sail-like object to break Link’s fall that were all later found in Breath of the Wild.
