The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Switch Listing Appears on Amazon UK

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Switch Listing Appears on Amazon UK - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 September 2020 / 2,781 Views

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword launched back in November 2011 for the Nintendo Wii and since its initial release has yet to get a port on any other Nintendo platform. However, that might be changing. 

A listing for a Nintendo Switch version of the action-adventure game has appeared on Amazon UK. The listing says it is by Nintendo with a price of £69.99 and is available for pre-order now. A release date is not provided. 

While a listing for the game has appeared for the Nintendo Switch, this does not mean it will actually get a release. It is best to wait for an official announcement from Nintendo before getting excited.

This would be awesome if true

Assuming this is real, would mean they’ve ported everything worthwhile from the Wii U and are now moving onto Wii ports?

Let’s say it’s real, probably that it will be released in 2021 since it’s the 35th anniversary of the series and the 10th anniversary of the game. It’s seems they also renewed alot of trademarks from previous Zelda games, who knows what we’ll get next year.

Who said they haven't already moved onto Wii ports/remasters? ie. Xenoblade Chronicles :P

I would love this. I did not get it for the Wii because I hate the motion controls, especially being left handed. So a remaster of this game with regular controls would get me to buy this day 1.

Doesn’t the Switch also have motion controls? I’d bet it still uses them.

They know full-well that the game was disliked most due to required motion controls. Porting it, with that knowledge, and not including traditional controls as an option would be incredibly foolhardy. I would fully expect them to go through the trouble of updating it if this rumor is legitimate.

That said, I loved the motion controls and absolutely hope they retain them - but I do hope they give traditional control as an option. While the game was designed around motion controls, there's nothing in it that couldn't be modified to allow traditional to work.

I am most hoping for a hybrid option - traditional controls augmented with gyro aim.

How many have we got like this. I wish someone had kept the list of these "accidental leak" from Amazon, showing games which never came out.

That's a good idea. I'm going to start a list with this one.

It's most likely a placeholder price. Online sites tend to overprice things if they're not sure of the retail price, because if someone preorders it, it's much better to tell them they have to spend less money than to ask them for more.

Great if true, but I wonder if it will be dependent on motion controls on Switch.

£69.99, really? Classic Nintendo. Not even remotely considered great.

I assume it's a Definitive Edition or a HD Remaster.
