The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword for Nintendo Switch has been listed on Amazon UK, possibly hinting at an eventual reveal or release.
The page doesn’t contain any details on the game such as the release date and it should be noted that Nintendo has not officially confirmed that the game is coming to the console. Zelda producer Eiji Aonuma has commented in the past on the possibility of bringing the Wii game over to the Switch without motion controls. He stated that the task would be “a little hard” and “might be close to impossible.” With that said, the listing should be taken with a grain of salt.
There has been plenty of times in the past when games have been listed on Amazon or other retailers with no information and nothing has ever come of it. However, the opposite has happened as well.
Skyward Sword released on the Wii back in 2011. It was praised critically, but as time has passed, the game has continued to be the black sheep of the series. It commonly is ridiculed for its motion controls and how much the game holds the player’s hand throughout the playthrough. Personally, I quite enjoy the game. It doesn’t hold a candle to the likes of Ocarina of Time or Wind Waker but it is otherwise an enjoyable experience as long as the motion controllers work and you do not mind a little simplicity.
With the Wii U receiving two HD remasters of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess and Nintendo’s mission to make the console even more obsolete by porting every game to the Switch, I would be surprised to see Skyward Sword come first. Zelda fans, myself included, have been practically begging Nintendo to bring the two remaster to the Switch. Not many people bought a Wii U and it would give the massive Switch player base an awesome opportunity to experience those games.
