Zelda: Skyward Sword HD: The Wii title returns to Nintendo Switch this July with improved controls, HD resolution, 60 FPS and the option to play with buttons. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD is one of the most important releases of Nintendo Switch for summer 2021. After passing through Wii a decade ago, the title located at the beginning of the chronology of the series lands this July 16 with a fresh look; although now we have learned that adjustments for tutorials and tips will be added during the game, thus facilitating navigation for those who consider it appropriate.
As we read on the official Nintendo portal, in the section of changes and news of that remastering, apart from the optimized performance (60 FPS), improved movement controls thanks to the Joy-Con controls or the possibility of playing with buttons (thought for the game in portable mode or with the Switch Pro Controller), one more element is added: “Various improvements, including adjustments to the tutorials and tips for the player throughout the adventure.”
