The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD Gets New Gameplay Trailer; Thank God There’s a Mode Where We Don’t Have to Swing Our Controllers Around

Nintendo released a new gameplay overview trailer for The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD coming to Nintendo Switch on July 16, 2021.

The trailer highlights gameplay from the upcoming remaster and gives viewers a chance to learn about its various features. This entry is one of the strangest Zelda titles as players must navigate an open-world area in the sky the leads to various dungeons below. In this entry, the developer allows players to use the Joy-Con as a sword and shield, but there’s also a handheld mode where you can use the controller without the motion controls.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword initially launched on Wii in 2011 and featured gameplay where players travel to various dungeons via a flying bird named Loftwing. Interestingly, the dungeons and layout of the adventure are very Zelda-esque as it retains many classic Zelda systems and mechanics, which some liked and some didn’t at the time.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the release of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, but you won’t have to wait long as it’s coming next month. Amiibo support also unlocks a rather interesting feature allowing players to escape from dungeons quicker.
