Game Informer Replay - The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward Sword

Join us for a look back at the often maligned Zelda title that Game Informer gave a 10!

Modder recreates The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword's 'Earth Temple' in Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Skyward Breath

I know The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is one of the most divisive entries in the entire series, but I'm on the side that loves the game. That's why I'm so happy to see a mod that brings one of the temples from Skyward Sword to life in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This is a full-on recreation, and it's super impressive at that. Makes me want to fire up Skyward Sword tonight!

Aonuma doesn't have plans for anymore Zelda remakes, says a remake of Skyward Sword using just buttons 'might be close to impossible'

Motion controls forever!

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is getting a major remake for the Switch, and it's looking fantastic. Could there be more remakes on the way? Game Informer asked Eiji Aonuma that very question, to which he responded with the following.

"Currently I don't have plans, but there is a title that we can incorporate new elements or new features that is perhaps a perfect fit for a remake, then maybe we'll consider it."

This lead to a discussion of potentially remaking Skyward Sword, but ditching the motion controls. Aonuma's response makes it seem like that's not likely to happen.

"So you're saying control it all with buttons? That's a little hard! I think it might be close to impossible!"

IGN Video - Zelda: Do We Even Want Skyward Sword on Switch?

We break down the rumor and follow up from Nintendo about Zelda: Skyward Sword on Switch. But would we want it?

Nintendo says they have 'no plans' to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Switch 'at this time'

Eiji Aonuma made an off-hand comment at the Legend of Zelda 2018 Concert event in Japan about fans waiting for Skyward Sword to come to Switch, and the internet ran with it. Why would Aonuma make a comment like this, unless he was teasing a project in the works? Turns out it was all just wishful thinking on the part of fans. Here's what a Nintendo spokesperson had to say when asked about the potential for a Switch port of the game.

"At this time we have no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Nintendo Switch."

IGN Video - Could Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Work on Switch?

Well, we didn't expect to get a tease at Skyward Sword on Switch. We have questions. Like a lot of questions.

Eiji Aonuma causes a stir, gets fan speculating about The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword coming to Switch

Could The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword be heading to the Switch? Comments from Nintendo's Eiji Aonuma have fans thinking a port is in the works.

Aonuma was part of a Legend of Zelda concert taking place as part of Nintendo Live, and during the concert he made this comment to the crowd.

“I know what you’re waiting for – Skyward Sword for Switch. Right?”

The fan went nuts over that comment, but there was no follow-up from Aonuma. Was it a joke, or a tease of something in the works? We'll just have to hang tight and see what happens!

Thanks to Sligeach_eire and Palmer64 for the heads up!
