Every legend has an origin, and soon players can follow the earliest tale in The Legend of Zelda timeline when The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD launches on Nintendo Switch. The HD version of this classic adventure features enhanced performance, smoother motion controls, and newly-added button controls.
Nintendo is also releasing a new set of Joy-Con controllers themed after the Master Sword and Hylian Shield. The Zelda & Loftwing amiibo can be used at any time while exploring the overworld or dungeons to create a checkpoint and return to the sky. Players can return to a previously created checkpoint by tapping the Amiibo. This function can be used either while in the sky or visiting one the many floating islands.
