So if the speculation is true Grezzo is working on a HD remake (I'm actually not convinced at all - the evidence is too slight) what do we think?

Is the Zelda circle now complete? Have we all decided that open world Zelda games are abhorrent and feel the need to swing to the exact opposite?

Clearly my initial guess of March 2018 isn't happening but 2018 or 2019?

Likewise what things would we want changing? My personal pick would be not telling me what I've collected every single time I pick up a collectible having restarted the game. I need to be told once and only once.

@StuTwo I'm going to quote what I said in the Grezzo thread;

Hold on a minute. I know Zelda is an easy conclusion, but let's take this into account for a moment that:

  • Nintendo doesn't own Grezzo, they're a third party company.
  • Grezzo's CEO, Koichi Ishii, previously worked at Square Enix and has worked on the Mana series.
  • Square Enix is remaking Secret of Mana for PC, PS4 and Vita.
  • Square Enix loves remaking their old games.
  • The Legend of Mana is also a thing.

Don't be surprised if this ends up being a Legend of Mana remake for PC, PS4 and Vita.

They literally could just port it as Joy Cons have motion controls. It'll put a dampener on people like me who 95% use my Switch as a handheld, however. Although I don't mind too much, i'm in no rush again to play through those silent zone/tears collecting parts or to beat Demise slug 3 times again anytime soon. I tried to play through it again on my Wii U and got to the first silent realm thing and haven't touched it since.

@Octane I know this is probably the wrong topic to say this but I just don't think the Legend of Mana was a good/popular enough game for a remake. At least not enough to make that type of announcement for. Now even I'm not saying it's Zelda but who knows.

@Spoony_Tech Maybe, but if Bubsy can get another game in 2017, anything is possible lol.

I loved SS, and i know i am in the minority when i say i even liked FI, but i think they should wait, get the real new sellers out of the way and use it to pick up sales later

Feel free to add me and contact me
Darn you Nintendo, my backlog is already out of control and you are just making it worse with these new game announcements!!!!

@StuTwo I sure hope so. I hope the Zelda cycle actually lives up to its name (even though it hasn't. I very clearly remember an almost instant hatred for SS after the initial review praise) and people start craving a game that plays like the franchise most people fell in love with. BOTW was great for fans of the original Zelda, but I think it's a bit telling when many of the BOTW fans are people who don't enjoy the usual Zelda gameplay anyway.

@Operative2-0 I want a traditional 3D Zelda game, I don't want Skyward Sword.

Octane

TuVictus

@Octane Well so do I, I'm not saying I want SS 2.0 (as much as I'd love it), I just mean Skyward Sword still had all the usual Zelda stuff. BOTW threw it all away. There should be some sort of middle ground, not all or nothing.

@Octane I would be amazed if Grezzo is making Skyward Sword HD. I just don't think it's likely - people are taking 1 and 1 and making 327.

However I have no doubt that it'll happen one day. For the reasons I've listed earlier in this thread. It's still the most ambitious motion controlled game ever made (for all of its many other myriad flaws) and Switch is a console that ships with expensive motion controllers.

So Wind Waker HD came out in the Fall, 10 years after Wind Waker came out in March and Twilight Princess HD came out in March, 10 years after Twilight Princess came out in Fall.

So what I'm saying is that I'm calling Skyward Sword HD to come out in March 2021. :V

Definitely not how game developers plan their calendars

@kkslider5552000 I've seen a lot of people say that but I don't think so because Skyward Sword wasn't really rated as well as the other games, the Switch motion controls sometimes act worse than the Wii ones (no sensor bar), and there would be no way to play it in handheld mode. The only way would be to completely revamp the game.

Which is why they'll release it in 2021, to perfect the controls!

By then we will have the Joycon SensoriPlus®, and the big innovation of the Power Locator Bar®.

Is that true? I still haven't got a switch.

@Dezzy From my experience, not really. ARMS is more precise than anything I've played on Wii, FPSs aside.

@Dezzy Switch motion controls are significantly better than Wii motion controls. If Arms works great with motion controls, I don't see why Nintendo wouldn't be able to pull off fluid combat in a Switch version of Skyward Sword.

The only downside with motion on the Switch is that there is no pointer per se - instead it uses tilt as a proxy for pointing at the screen. This actually works really well in combination with the analog sticks for aiming in games like BOTW and Splatoon.

That said, I'd rather they ditch motion controls if it means salvaging portability.

@dtjive
Skyward Sword was actually a pretty decent game. I’m sick of people like you saying it wasn’t. The story was solid, the relationship between Link and Zelda was one of the best in the series, graphics pushed the Wii to its limit, music was great, environments were great, and the motion actually worked really well. The game isn’t that vastly different than Twilight Princess, which also had motion controls on the Wii (which no one seems to be complaining about. People are mainly salty toward it because of the motion controls. I think people think it is cool to dislike the game. If you dislike it, fine, but don’t say it wasn’t good, because you sound like a teenage clown who knows nothing about games.

The point of remastering a game is to bring new life to it for others to play. If they take assets from BoTW, then it would defeat the purpose. Not sure why you would even say that.
