@Androyd34 My main and only gripe with the whole games was the flying. Many said it was similar to sailing but flying was even more empty the sailing. Other then that I had no problems with Motion, story, Fi, or anything other then maybe fighting that same boss multiple times whatever it was called.

They could do an HD collection of classics in the vein of Metrod Prime Trilogy, Super Mario All-Stars or Mega Man Legacy Collection. If they do another re-release of the Wii U HD version of Twilight and Wind Waker, adding in Skyward Sword as well would be a no-brainer. With better textures and HD resolutions, none of these games look particularly dated as the art direction in each game, while varying greatly between them, is still consistently great. Particularly the colourful style of Skyward Sword is not unlike the one in last year's Breath of the Wild.

Listening to the soundtrack. Getting my hopes up that SS will somehow get the remaster treatment. It’s 10 years old this year on the 35th anniversary...the numbers make it sound plausible..

skyward sword sold less than the original wind waker on gamecube, but i can see it coming bundled with other games like mario sunshine has done. But if nintendo doesn't do a bundle i don't think we'll get an hd overhaul. i would consider a miracle a basic port/emulation like galaxy on the eshop.
I really liked the soundtrack and the story above all!

One way or another skyward sword HD needs to happen! My only gripe with it was that sometimes it was finicky trying to throw bombs with the motion controls. Sword attacks were almost never an issue for me. You just have to swing lightly. Not really quickly like you're trying to swat a fly. I loved the music, Link and Zelda's design, the overall look, the somewhat shortened dungeons only not as short as those pathetic shrines in BOTW. Also Fi wasn't half as annoying as Navi with her hey! Look! listen! everytime i tried to open a door.

Skyward sword is easily in my top 10 favorite Zelda games of all time!

If Nintendo follows the same format as Mario and wants to show 3D Zelda games across different systems, this must make Skyward Sword a highly likely inclusion in a three game collection?

@MarioBrickLayer
I don't think so. They need to make so many changes to SS, and if they do that, they want to sell it for 60. If they do collection I believe there would be Ocarina, WW and TP. WW and TP would be minimal effort Wii U ports.

@Justifier That makes sense. Personally I would like Ocarina + Majora's Mask + TP. I love Wind Waker, but I have been playing it recently!!!

@teo_o Pretty sure SS sold less cause it required an extra Add-on, the "Motion plus". That's a big turn off for many people, especially since this game released very late in the Wiis lifecircle where people are even less willing o buy an add-on for an old console

Yeah that motion plus thing, that did kinda make it less appealing. Especially considering it was only used in what 4 games? Skyward sword, Red steel 2, Wii sports resort and I forget what else. The Wii was basically on its last legs and they wanted people to go get an accessory for it. Genius!

@Zeldafan79 I think they probably committed to the idea years before and the SS delays ultimately made it seem a bit silly.

That and Nintendo clearly had the idea that all the motion plus controllers would be useful going forwards because everyone would be using them with their Wii U’s...

Aside from that though - I’ve always thought that SS on Switch makes sense. They should have released it a couple of year ago - it is the pre-eminent motion controlled game ever made and has some very well designed and memorable bits (even if it’s not the best Zelda game and has a ton of annoying flaws).

@mariomaster96 there's an interesting article here on nintendolife about it. the motion plus might have definitely have a part in it, but by the release of SS wii remote plus had been included with the console for a year, and wii sports resort has sold 30 milion copies.
It would be interesting to see how well it did digitally on WiiU, but then again, the console wasn't a huge success so...
In the end i don't think it really matters, i don't know the specifics, but i doubt SS was a loss in development costs, and if nintendo wants to have a substancial retro library on switch to appeal fans, they'll port it anyway i think.
I would love to come back to it and see it with news eyes!

Ha, this was pretty much my biggest announcement in the whole Direct. An HD port of a Wii game, Lol.

Which they're trying to charge full retail price for?

I'll buy it just for the sake of having a non-motion controlled version.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Nice. Now we have Ocarina of time 3D, majoras mask 3D, windwaker HD, twilight princess HD and finally skyward sword HD

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

I am so glad this is coming. Been waiting for a more normalized version forever, it seems.

I love this game, it'll be fun to play it again on Switch. Doesn't seem like there'll be anything new though. Oh and the text size for the Item Grab scene is just awful.

A nice addition to the game library.

I love this game, but it still looked like the Wii version from the trailer.
Good that it offers a control option for the lite, I guess that the keys will be done with lots of thumbstick twisting?
Think price is going to be a large factor for this.
