Rumor: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Could Be Coming to Switch

Link's last outing on the Wii could be making its way onto Nintendo Switch according to longtime Zelda series producer and director Eiji Aonuma.

Longtime Legend of Zelda producer and director Eiji Aonuma may have given the first hint as to what the next Zelda game coming to the Nintendo Switch could be. Fans in attendance at a Legend of Zelda concert in Osaka, Japan, say Aonuma hinted at The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword released back in 2011. It was one of the last Nintendo exclusive titles that released on the Wii and was met with some mixed reception from fans. Skyward Sword has a very heavy reliance on motion controls which had become a turnoff to many by 2011. Another major difference compared to other Zelda games is the fact that you use flying to get to every location on the map. Also, this is one of the only Zelda games where Ganondorf isn’t the main antagonist.

A port doesn’t seem unlikely considering Nintendo has brought over a good chunk of older titles, all of which have been from the Wii U era. The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword would be the first game from the Wii’s library to be ported. I personally still really want to see Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD make it onto Switch.
