Nintendo has released a new trailer giving an overview of what to expect in next month’s release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD for the Nintendo Switch.
It’s a handy introduction for those who missed it on the Wii the first time around back in 2011. Acting as a sort-of prequel, Skyward Sword kicks off the Zelda timeline and details the origins of Hyrule & the Master Sword. Playing as series hero Link, you’ll be searching for childhood friend Zelda from above the clouds and across the Surface world below.
As previously revealed, each Joy-Con can correspond to your shield and sword with motion controls as it was with the original game, or you can use the all-new button only mode. As well as your weapons, you’ll also get to use a bunch of tools during your adventure, including the Beetle, Whip, Bombs and the Clawshot.
You can get your eyes on the trailer below. A special Zelda and Loftwing amiibo set is also launching alongside the game, which when used in-game lets you fast-travel at any time. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches on Nintendo Switch on 16 July, 2021.
