Yesterday Nintendo announced that The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword is being updated and re-released in HD form for the Switch later this year The original motion controls required, but what if you hate motion controls? And just as important, what if you have a Switch Lite and therefore can’t detach the Joy-Cons to swing like a sword and shield? Don’t worry, Nintendo supports both scenarios
The Wii may have been a very successful console for Nintendo, but not everyone was a fan of games using motion controls Many people have managed to damage their TVs by inadvertently throwing their Wii Remote at Skyward Sword on Wii required the Wii Remote, Nunchuck, and Wii MotionPlus device to simulate Link’s sword and shield wielding Nintendo recreated this same motion input using the Switch’s Joy-Cons for the new version
If you own a Switch Lite, or prefer to sit back and press buttons when playing games, Nintendo is here for you There is a button-only input method included with Skyward Sword HD It replaces the controls of sword movement by swiping movements on the right joystick You can see how it works in the video above, and it seems to be a very intuitive system
Not the kind to miss a sales opportunity, Nintendo also offers a set of Skyward Sword Edition Joy-Cons to play the game These can be paired with the Switch Lite as well as the Switch, which means that no matter which console model you own, you can enjoy the game with motion controls if that is your preference.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD will release on July 16 for $ 59.99 alongside the Joy-Cons Special Edition There’s no pricing announced for the Joy-Cons yet, but they usually cost $ 79 99 for a pair
