The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD soars to adventure in its launch trailer

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD releases for the Nintendo Switch tomorrow, so of course there’s a launch trailer to mark the occasion.

In case you’ve somehow not been keeping up, the game is a remaster of Link’s 2011 adventure originally released for the Wii. Set right at the beginning of the series’ various timeline, it tells the origins of the fabled Master Sword and the kingdom of Hyrule.

NOW READ: Holiday Deals now live on Amazon & Best Buy. Big brands such as Lenovo and Samsung are also starting to offer Holiday discounts early, with many more to follow.

Aside from the graphical upgrades, there’s a bunch of new additions for the Nintendo Switch, most notably making the original’s motion controls optional for a stick-based control scheme with one controlling Link’s sword and the other his shield. Other tweaks include skippable dialogue, additional help and a new fast travel system using the optional Amiibo.

This year also marks the 35th Anniversary of the Legend of Zelda series, and though Nintendo don’t seem to be making as big a deal of the occasion as they did for Mario’s similar anniversary last year outside of this release, we were treated to some new footage from the next The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game back during E3.

Check out the trailer for yourself below. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch from tomorrow, July 16.
