Where to pre-order The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD on Nintendo Switch

In the wake of yesterday’s Nintendo Direct, the company has announced the release of a full HD remake of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Switch, the earliest ever game in the Zelda timeline and one of a very small number of games where you can sit on a shoebill bird.

Skyward Sword originally came out in 2011 on the first Wii, and Nintendo seems to have gone to the effort of translating the motion controls to the Switch’s Joy-Cons, meaning you can swing them about the room and have Link wave the Master Sword in the same way. And, presumably, when you bash your knuckles on a coffee table, Link will also spend ten minutes walking in circles making pained breathing noises.

But there’s still time before that, so until then you can always check out our story on the reveal of Skyward Sword, or take a look at the full Nintendo Direct here!
