The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess Remasters Are Still Coming to Switch, Leaker Says


The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and Twilight Princess Nintendo Switch remasters are still coming to Nintendo Switch, despite the series' producer recent statement on the franchise 35th Anniversary celebrations.

VGC's editor Andy Robinson, who proved to be extremely reliable in the past, provided an update on his rumor from earlier this year, suggesting that these remasters will eventually be released.

Andy Robinson also suggested that these The Legend of Zelda remasters haven't been announced during yesterday's E3 2021 Nintendo Direct as it wouldn't have made much sense with Skyward Sword HD yet to release.

Andy Robinson was among the first ones to talk about Super Mario 3D All-Stars, so there is no denying that he is extremely reliable. With The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 scheduled for a generic 2022 release, it would make sense for Nintendo to keep these titles back and release them next year in case the next entry in the series gets delayed to the following year, which wouldn't be surprising at all, considering that major Zelda games rarely don't get delayed. Still, we have to take everything with a grain of salt until an official confirmation comes in.

The next remaster coming to Nintendo Switch is the already mentioned The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, which releases on July 16th. The game will come with some gameplay tweaks as well as improved visuals and more.

Originally released in 2011 for the Wii system, and depicting the earliest story in the series’ timeline – as well as the creation of the Master Sword itself – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword game now arrives on Nintendo Switch with smoother and more intuitive controls, in addition to improved framerate and graphics.

In this enhanced version of the game, running at a smooth 60 frames per second, you can choose to play using motion control with the two Joy-Con controllers in a similar way to the original, or use newly added button-only controls to play the game with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, in handheld mode or using a Nintendo Switch Lite system.
