Following the HD remasters of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, many Zelda fans were hoping that Skyward Sword would be next in line. According to attendees of a recent Zelda concert in Japan, series producer Eiji Aonuma even teased Skyward Sword for Switch during the event. So can we expect an official announcement soon?
Well, not so fast. After reporting on this story, Eurogamer managed to get a follow-up comment from a Nintendo spokesperson, and it wasn’t exactly promising. The Nintendo rep told Eurogamer ”
At this time we have no plans to release The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on Nintendo Switch.”
So the official word is currently “no,” but I wouldn’t say that’s cause to lose hope altogether. Aonuma has been known to tease things ahead of time (although usually in a much more subtle way), and Nintendo has been known to drop the ”
no plans” PR line when an in-development product leaks ahead of time. I wouldn’t exactly hold my breath, but it’s still possible that it’s on the way and Aonuma simply jumped the gun on teasing it.
