Skyward Sword HD is the perfect Zelda game to remaster — here why


The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD was arguably the biggest announcement to come out of February’s Nintendo Direct. Sure, we saw Splatoon 3 and Mario Golf: Super Rush, but let’s face it: This month marks The Legend of Zelda’s 35th anniversary, and the people want more Zelda. Since we didn’t get any news about Breath of the Wild 2, Skyward Sword HD is the next best thing — and if fans aren’t thrilled by this news, then I’d like to argue that they should be.

Over the past few days, both the Tom’s Guide team and Twitter have been abuzz about Nintendo deciding to remaster such an underwhelming entry in the storied Legend of Zelda series. But ever since I first played it, Skyward Sword has been one of my favorite titles in the franchise. While the criticisms frequently leveled at the game are more than fair, Skyward Sword had more than enough inventive features to counterbalance them. And, furthermore, the Switch re-release will fix what was arguably Skyward Sword’s biggest problem.
